What's Your Impossible?
Leveraging Psychology in the 21st Century 

2019 CPA Convention

April 4-7, 2019

Long Beach Hilton
Long Beach , CA

Firm Deadline: midnight December 7, 2018

Things we are particular about:

  • You must be a doctoral student in psychology or hold a doctorate in psychology to submit a proposal.
  • The lead author must register and attend the convention to present the poster at 3:30 to 4:00 pm on the day the poster is displayed/presented.
  • Other authors who plan to attend the poster session must register for the convention.

Please note: A discounted registration rate is available for poster presenters. Students may volunteer in order to be reimbursed for their registration fee.

What is a poster?

A poster is an excellent way to summarize original research or single case studies, or to present an original conceptual model that has been used in innovative interventions in therapy. It is expected that posters will represent original work, research, or projects that have been fully completed before presentation at the convention.  Literature reviews and planned research are not appropriate for posters.

Guidelines for Poster Proposals:

  • All proposals must be submitted online here
  • All presentation submissions MUST be received by midnight, December 7, 2018.
  • Proposals from members of CPA will receive preference.
  • No presenter may submit more than two poster proposals.
  • A poster consists of key information (brief paragraphs, bulleted outlines, diagrams, tables, graphs) presented together. The CPA convention uses 24” x 36” black foam core board set on easels rather than on a bulletin board. The poster must fit on this board. Most copy or print stores can print posters (from a PowerPoint file) for a reasonable cost. Poster can be in color or black and white.
  • There must be a primary presenter for each poster proposal. This individual will be the person who will be the main contact for CPA. It will be that person’s responsibility to notify the co-presenters of status and details.
  • Those poster presentations selected will be assigned a time either on Friday or Saturday of the convention. Each day there will be a designated time when presenters are expected to be available to discuss their posters.
  • All those proposing a poster will be notified of the Committee’s decision in January.
