Panel Discussion: Motivation-based Interventions

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

To be considered, please submit a 200-word abstract that outlines specific goals of the research, methods used, a summary of results, and a conclusion through the Motivation preconference website. 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.
