Science Showcase at the 2011 APA Convention: Call for submissions

Present a live demonstration of your research to a broad audience.

The APA Science Directorate and Convention Office invite you to submit your research for a Science Showcase, to be held at the APA Convention in Washington DC in August 2011. Up to six groups will be selected to present in-person demonstrations of their research to a general audience at the Convention Center. Demonstrations that complement the APA strategic goal of promoting psychology as a STEM discipline are encouraged, as are those that show how psychological research can translate into everyday benefits for the public.

Each group selected will receive one complimentary Convention registration and up to $1,500 support towards travel and project costs.  The project designated as “Best Demonstration” will also receive an award of $3,000.  The project organizers will be recognized by the APA President at the Convention’s Opening Ceremony and their projects will be covered in the APA Monitor on Psychology.

The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2011. Specific requirements and submission forms can be found on the APA website. Please direct your questions to the science directorate via e-mail or call 202-336-6000.
