	Attitudes & Social Influence
Location: Room TBD  |  8:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Evaluations have been central to social psychology since the field's earliest days. The Attitudes & Social Influence Preconference features speakers whose work addresses issues of cognitive, affective, and motivational processes, implicit and explicit measures, and interventions designed to change people's evaluations and behavior. We value an interactive environment; thus, this preconference consists of 30-minute talks with a 15-minute Q & A session after each. There will also be data blitz and poster sessions that give graduate students and early career researchers an opportunity to present their recent research. The program also features a presentation of Distinguished Career Awards.

We invite current graduate students or recent PhDs (degree received in 2016 or later) to submit proposals for a 5-10 minute "data blitz" oral presentation or a poster presentation at the preconference. These presentations should address topics in the field of attitudes, persuasion, and social influence, broadly defined.

To be considered, please submit a 1200-character abstract that outlines specific goals of the research, methods used, a summary of results, and a conclusion through the Attitudes & Social Influence preconference website. You will also be asked to submit a 400-character summary description. Please be sure to specify if you would like your submission to be considered for a data blitz or poster. If you choose data blitz, your submission will automatically be considered for a poster if not accepted as a data blitz.

The portal for data blitz and poster submissions will be open from September 1, 2019 through November 15, 2019 (please note the earlier submission window).
