Call for Abstracts

Applicants should submit abstracts for their contributions to AA 2008 using the online submission form. Authors are encouraged to send scientific contibutions from different fields of psychology, excluding papers focusing on psychological practice. Abstracts can be submitted for the following modes of presentation:


A symposium is organised in advance. It comprises of several presentations, preferably from different countries, dedicated to one problem. The convenor is responsible for the 100-minute program and its content. This time frame allows for five or six speakers and a discussant. To meet the requirements for submitting a symposium, conveners are requested to submit:

via email to the Organizing Committee.

The participants in the symposium should submit the abstract of their contribution individually and select:

Oral Presentations

The time slot for an oral presentation is 20 minutes. The talk should last 15 minutes, leaving a further 5 minutes for questions and a short discussion. Individually submitted abstracts accepted for oral presentation will be grouped into sessions based on the conference topic list (see the drop down menu of topics in the submission form or place your mouse over this link - topic list).


Each poster will presumably be exhibited for one full day and a special term will be allotted for their presentation. Simultaneously exhibited posters will be grouped into thematic sessions based on the conference topic list. Student posters and "rapid communication" posters presenting unfinished studies, preliminary results, and the problems arising in an ongoing study are also admissible.

Abstract submission information

Abstracts should be written in English, the official language of AA 2008. Every person can be the the first author of only one contribution. Before submitting the abstract, you should first register via the online registration form.

Abstract submission deadline is set to May 31, 2008.

Each participant will be able to access and edit her/his abstract online with a password prior to the deadline. No changes will be possible after this date.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the local Scientific Committee and may be selected for either oral or poster presentation. Notification of acceptance or rejection by the Scientific Committee and the suggested mode of presentation will be mailed to the author until June 30th, 2008. Detailed information on the mode of presentation (e.g., guidelines for poster presentation, time allotment) and the date, hour, and venue will be sent to the author before the end of July, 2008.

Accepted abstracts will be published online on the conference website as well as in Volume 17 (supplement) of the journal Horizons of Psychology. Abstracts submitted will not be edited in any way. Hence, any typographic and grammatical errors in the submitted abstract will appear in the printed version. Changes in authorship should be communicated to the Organizing Committee in order to ensure correct appearance in the printed program. Abstract submission constitutes a formal commitment by the author to present the corresponding presentation in the session, mode of presentation and timeslot assigned by the Scientific Committee. If the original presenting author is unable to attend, one of the co-authors should take over this task.

If you have any problems or are unable to make an electronic submission, please contact us.
