The Intervention Science preconference brings together researchers interested in turning social psychology outward to understand and address pressing societal problems. This year, we will discuss the science of field-based interventions that address social issues where they occur: in classrooms, college campuses, communities, health-focused organizations, and other settings, both in the US and internationally.
This year’s speakers, including Claude Steele, Buju Dasgupta, Eran Halperin, Linda Tropp, Nicole Stephens/Sarah Townsend, Rezarta Bilali, Rahul Ladhania, Lindsay Juarez, Ana Gantman, and Valerie Purdie Greenaway, conduct interventions across a wide variety of field settings, on topics such as improving equity in education, reducing sexual assault on college campuses, improving public health by helping people develop healthy habits, preventing violent extremism, promoting intergroup relations in conflict settings, and more. We will also feature panels and/or breakout sessions to discuss different types of field experiments and practical considerations in conducting field intervention research in more detail.
We invite abstract submissions to present in our poster session (open to all attendees) and/or to give an early career data blitz (open to graduate students and recent PhDs).
We invite attendees who would like to present a poster or early career data blitz on their intervention research to submit abstracts using the SPSP Preconference Submission Portal. The portal will be open from September 1st - November 15th.
Eligibility: Poster submissions are open to all attendees; early career data blitz submissions are open to doctoral students and recent PhDs (degree earned 2015 or later). If you fit the criteria for both submissions, you are welcome to submit your abstracts to both categories by checking the boxes for both "Poster" and "Data Blitz."
Note that data collection must at least be in progress prior to submission and that all presenters must be registered for the Intervention Science preconference. Our poster session will take place around lunch and the data blitz will be in the afternoon. We look forward to your submissions and will announce all poster and data blitz acceptances by December 6, 2019.
