16th SPS SGP SSP Conference
September 09-11, 2019 | Bern

Psychology’s Contribution to Society


You must register before making a submission. Once your account is activated, you will be able to log in and submit symposia and individual abstracts. All submissions must be done via the website. Email submissions will not be accepted.

Because we are aiming to bring together researchers from different scientific backgrounds around common themes, symposia will be given priority.

The maximum number of presenting roles is 2 per attendee, with distinct content for each presentation. Being chair in a symposium (without holding an individual presentation) does not count as a presenting role. Feedback on acceptance will be communicated at the end of June 2019.


  • Duration: 90 minutes
  • Speakers: either three speakers with a general discussant or four speakers without a general discussant.
  • Please try to stick to the following presentation time: 15 min. presentation + 5 min. for questions per talk / general discussion.
  • Submission: The symposium organizer first needs to submit an overall abstract of 200 words. In addition, each person presenting as part of the symposium needs to register for the conference individually, latest by the submission deadline, and submit an individual abstract (150 words) that relates their talk to the symposium.
  • As we are planning to be particularly inclusive of young scientists, all symposia are encouraged to include a presentation by a Ph.D. or Master's student.

Individual presentations

Individual presentations will be assembled to symposia of similar topics by the Organizers.

  • Each speaker will have 15 min. to present and 5 minutes for questions.
  • Individual presenters must submit a 150-words abstract.

Short Talks

Short Talks should be given by Ph.D. and Master’s students only. The idea is to give the audience an idea of the research question the presenter investigates…in an entertaining fashion. There will be one session of short talks with a maximum of eight presentations. And... there will be an award for the best short talk given!

  • Each speaker will have 5 min. to present and 2 min. for questions.
  • Individual presenters must submit a 150-words abstract.


  • Posters should be printed in portrait format, in A0 size (84.1 x 118.9 cm).
  • A 150-words abstract must be submitted.
