The Social Personality Health Network (SPHN) is excited to present the 12th annual SPSP Health Preconference, dedicated to examining the reciprocal relationship between social/personality psychology and health. This preconference, the day prior to the 2020 SPSP main conference in New Orleans, LA, will present research at multiple levels of analysis. Topics this year will include health disparities, personality, interventions, mobile technology, psychophysiology, and social neuroscience, among other exciting areas of research. Registration to our preconference comes with the perk of a one-year membership in SPHN.
Abstracts are requested for three types of presentations: Flash Talks, Posters, and Data Blitzes. All presenters must be registered for the preconference to present. Submissions are due by November 15, 2019 to https://tinyurl.com/SPSPHealth-2020. Submission opportunities differ by rank:
Faculty (or equivalent outside of academia) may apply to present a 5-minute Flash Talk. To apply, please submit a title and brief abstract (200 words or fewer).
Students and postdocs can apply to present a poster or 2-minute Data Blitz. You will be able to indicate that you would like to be considered for a poster should your data blitz be rejected. To apply, please submit a title and brief abstract (200 words or fewer).
Graduate students and postdocs are also eligible for one of two $500 travel awards on the basis of outstanding data blitz abstracts. Submissions earmarked only for the poster session are not eligible for the travel awards. To be considered for a travel award, please submit your data blitz as outlined above, along with your CV. Please submit your CV as a PDF file, titled "LastName_CV."
Early Career Award: Also, the Social Personality and Health Network (SPHN) awards an annual Early Career Award to honor a junior scholar who has made exceptional contributions to research and/or practice that integrates social/personality and health psychology. The recipient of the award will be announced at the 2020 preconference, and the winner will be formally recognized at the 2021 preconference with a plaque and the opportunity to give an invited research talk.
Eligibility: Scholars are eligible to be nominated for this early career award if they have earned doctoral degree within the past 10 years (not before March 2010). Nominators should submit a packet including a CV, a 1-2 page cover letter describing the research contributions in terms of integration of social/personality and health psychology, and 2-3 representative publications. Nomination packets should be submitted as a single PDF file, titled LastName_EarlyCareer. Members of the SPHN Steering Committee are ineligible for the award. Self-nominations are welcome.
