Symposia

Symposia are designed to capture a coherent set of three to four individual presentations that center on one theme within health psychology. The speakers address in depth an issue or a question of particular relevance. Symposia typically place individual experiences or research results in a broader context and allow time for interaction between the presenters and discussion amongst the group.

  • The available time is 90 minutes.
  • Symposia should consist of a short introduction by the chairperson, three or four speakers and a general discussion.
  • At least 15 minutes should be reserved for the general discussion and interaction with the audience. For this purpose, a discussant may be proposed.
  • Please be aware that a symposium should consist of presentations from different authors from at least two different institutions.
  • The two best rated oral presentations of the conference will receive the ‘ARPH Oral presentation award’ – one for each day.

Oral Presentations

Oral presentation abstracts may describe research projects on any subject within health psychology. Oral presentations will be organized in thematic sessions.

  • Please note that while it is acceptable to submit abstracts with preliminary rather than full results available, a lack of results limits the ability of reviewers to fully assess the impact/significance of the work, and such submissions are likely to receive lower scores. Submissions without any results will not be accepted.
  • If your abstract doesn’t qualify for an oral presentation but is still considered of sufficient quality, you will have the opportunity to present it as a poster.
  • The two best rated oral presentations of the conference will receive the ‘ARPH Oral presentation award’ – one for each day.
  • Please use the form below and send your completed form to secretariat@mediscon.nl.
