We welcome posters about parenting/family and personality/emotional/social psychology. To submit your applications for posters at this preconference, please fill out this form; you will need the list of authors, title, keywords for your topic, age group and ethnicity of your sample(s), methodologies you adopted, and brief descriptions for your aim, method, results, and implication.

Poster acceptance will be first announced after SPSP will have opened up registrations (mid-August), as posters will be confirmed only after the presenter registered for this preconference. Then the acceptance will be announced periodically until all spots would be filled. Even though SPSP's official deadline for the poster submission is November 15th, if there is no slot left for a registration for this preconference, no poster can be accepted.
