Submission Instructions & Contact Information


Welcome and thank you for your interest in submitting an abstract for the International LGBTQ Psychology Pre-Conference to be held in conjunction with ICAP and CPA 2018 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada June 25th, 2018. Due to overwhelming interest, we are considering extending the conference to the 24th and 25th of June. During the submission process, you will be able to indicate whether you are available on the 24th & 25th or only the 25th of June. We will use this information in planning the program.

The following pages will ask you to provide: 
  • Your contact information & affiliation 
  • A title for your presentation
  • A 250 word abstract for your presentation
  • Your preference for the type of presentation you would like to offer at the conference 
  • Eligibility for student awards
  • Eligibility for travel bursaries 

Types of Presentations: 

Oral Presentation (20 Minutes): An oral presentation that will be grouped with 2-3 other presentations. Each presenter will have roughly 15 minutes to speak and 5 minutes to answer questions.

Symposia (1 Hour): A complete set of 3-5 papers on a coherent topic. Please submit an abstract for the overall symposium explaining how the papers fit together as well as individual abstracts for each paper.

Data Blitz (5 Minutes): These are short, to the point, and fun presentations! Each presenter will be given 5 minutes (and not a second more) and 3 slides in which to present the most important and interesting aspects of their research. 

Poster: Poster presentations offer the opportunity to present your work visually. Posters will be displayed at various points throughout the conference and there will be designated times when presenters are asked to stand near their poster in order to engage with those interested in hearing more about the work. Poster presentations may be in either French or English.   Les présentations d'affiches peuvent être en français ou en anglais.

Roundtable Discussion – 1 hour During Lunch: Roundtable discussions are informal sessions where the submitter serves as a discussion facilitator with a small group of delegates interested in discussing the proposed topic. These sessions will take place during lunchtime, offering delegates the opportunity to pick a table to eat at by picking the topic that they would most like to discuss.
