Instructions for submitting a poster to EPA
Conference: Psi Chi Eastern Regional Convention Program (2009)
For students wishing to submit a poster as part of the Psi Chi program to EPA:
Go to the EPA's website.
You must join the EPA as an Associate Member in order to submit a poster proposal and attend the EPA convention. To do this, click the "Join EPA" tab in the left column and follow instructions to join and pay online. All members of EPA can register for the EPA convention for free.
ONCE YOU ARE A MEMBER OF EPA: Log into the website with the User ID and Password provided once you join.
Click the "Members Only" tab in the left margin.
Then click the "Associate Proposals" tab in the left margin. Complete all information requested. It is best if you have your full proposal ready before you begin to fill this page in, including the title of your poster, the names and college (or other professional) affiliations of each author, a 75-word short abstract of your proposal, and a longer summary of your proposal that is no longer than 1000 words (do not include your list of References in this word count).
BE SURE TO CHECK THE BOX INDICATING THAT YOU ARE A PSI CHI MEMBER--THIS COMES TOWARD THE END OF THE SUBMISSION AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SAME PAGE THAT YOU INSERT YOUR ABSTRACTS.
NOTE THAT, AS WITH PREVIOUS YEARS, PSI CHI POSTERS WILL BE PRESENTED DURING THE SAME THEMED SESSIONS AS ALL OTHER POSTERS (e.g., if your topic is in Social Psychology, it will be presented with the other Social Psychology posters; Clinical topics will all be presented together, etc.). We have found that this brings a much better attendance to your poster. Nevertheless, first authors of posters who are members of Psi Chi will all be considered for the $300 Research award, to be given out during the Psi Chi Awards reception. The specific date and time for this reception will be posted once the final EPA program is made available, likely in early February.
Please contact Prof. Jason Young, Eastern Region Vice-President of Psi Chi, if you have any questions about this process.
