The organizing committee invites authors to submit their research for presentation at the 17th annual Evolutionary Psychology Preconference. This year we will be accepting abstract submissions for both a data blitz talks and poster presentations! The data blitz and poster session are an excellent opportunity for researchers--including faculty--to present new findings and get feedback from our community.
Each data blitz presenter will have 5 minutes to present 3-4 slides on their research and will also have time to answer 1 brief audience question.
Each poster presenter will have a poster board to attach their presentation to while they mingle with attendees.
