A research symposium should consist of 3 paper submissions and a discussion led by a 4th contributor, or 4 paper submissions.

A teaching event should consist of a clear subject involving teaching to (developmental) psychology students. Such a meeting can take various forms, including a symposium, a presentation, and round table discussion.

Individual presentations will be scheduled in the format of a Flash Talk (5 minute presentations with 5 slides maximum).

Conference attendees are allowed to submit 1 paper presentation (either in a symposium or a single paper presentation) and 1 poster presentation. We want to emphasize that both senior and junior researchers (including Research Master students) are encouraged to submit!
