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, 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.
  • The symposium initiator completes the Symposium Submission form (Word document – click below) and send it to the conference secretariat.
  • After that, the initiator invites the four speakers to submit the abstract by following the instructions below.

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 submit your abstract by clicking the button below and following the instructions.

  • 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.
  • The presenters of the two top rated poster pitches will receive the ‘ARPH Poster Award’ – one for each day.
  • Please submit your abstract by clicking the button below and following the instructions.
