Preconferences are day-long intensive workshops that kick off the SPSP Annual Convention and give attendees the unique opportunity to gather with colleagues who share their specific academic and research interests. These sessions can include speakers, discussions, networking lunches with experts, and poster presentations.
With over 80 offered at the convention, these 75 minute sessions offer attendees the chance to hear from some leading researchers in the field. The content of symposia is entirely scientific, offering a look into cutting-edge research.
Poster sessions are located in the exhibit hall. There are over 2,000 posters displayed over the course of the convention, offering attendees ample opportunity to see the latest research being conducted around the country and the world, while affording them the chance to chat with the minds behind the science.
These sessions are scattered throughout the two day program of the convention and introduce attendees to topics and content to further their growth in the field. Professional development sessions can be held over meal times, and give attendees the chance to build their networks with influential colleagues.
Want a lot of science fast? Data blitz sessions will offer rapid fire presentation style science in 5 minute chunks. Presenters have limited time to give attendees the very best of their research. These popular sessions are attendees' best chance to capture the span of the field in one session.
