2008 AP-LS Conference
The 2008 AP-LS Annual Conference will be held March 5 - 8th at the Hyatt Regency Riverfront in Jacksonville, Florida. Proposals for symposia, papers, and posters addressing topics in all areas of psychology and law are invited. International submissions are welcome, and papers authored or co-authored by students are also encouraged. We especially welcome proposals that are empirically based and those that involve new and emerging topics within psychology and law.
Proposals will be evaluated through a blind review process focused on the following three criteria: 1) the intellectual merit of the proposal, 2) the innovative nature of the proposal, and 3) the proposal's integration of multiple aspects of the field of psychology and law.
Jacksonville's famous bridges provided the inspiration for the theme of the 2008 Conference: "Bridging the Discipline." The goal of this conference is not just to bridge psychology and law, but to provide opportunities that will bring together clinicians and non-clinicians, graduate students and professionals, and individuals from a variety of backgrounds. Symposia that reflect this theme are particularly encouraged.
Paper proposals are appropriate for presentations that will focus on an individual research topic or piece of legal scholarship. After acceptance/rejection of proposals has been determined, the conference co-chairs will group paper presentations into sessions consisting of 3-5 presentations. (Each paper session at the conference will be allotted up to 60 minutes. The amount of time allowed for each individual presentation will be determined by the total number of presentations involved).
A symposium proposal is appropriate for a coordinated group of presentations that will focus on one topic. Symposia proposals must include a minimum of four presentations. Each participant and the topics to be discussed should be outlined in the proposal. The participation of each presenter should be secured before submitting the proposal. (Each symposium session at the conference will be allotted up to 80 minutes.)
Poster presentations will be made at one of two poster sessions held Friday and Saturday evenings. Presentations will be made in a written format on display boards (size TBA).
Please be aware that we are continuing an ongoing effort to increase the rigor of the review process and the quality of the presentations at the conference this year. As a result, we are likely to accept fewer paper and symposium presentations and to accept more poster presentations. Please be sure to indicate during submission if you would like your paper or symposium papers to be considered for inclusion as posters if they are not accepted as proposed.
The deadline for submissions is 3:00PM EDT on September 24th, 2007.
