The political psychology preconference brings together researchers to discuss topics in political behavior. In addition to faculty speakers, we host a graduate student talk, data blitz, poster session, and paper-swap. Our objectives are to break down boundaries between psychology and political science, and promote the next generation of political psychologists.

There are several opportunities for young scholars to present their work at the preconference, which are outlined below. When submitting, please indicate all of the categories (e.g., student talk) that you would like your submission to be considered for. If a submission is not accepted for a particular category, the submission will be evaluated for the next category that the submitter has listed, in the order of student talk, data blitz, and poster session. For example, if a submitter indicates that they are interested in being considered for both the student talk and the data blitz, they will first be evaluated for the student talk. If they are not selected for the student talk, they will then be considered for the data blitz.
Submissions should include a title, 250 word abstract (please do not include identifying information), and CV (only for Student Talk Submissions). Note that for all submissions, data must be collected and analyzed before submission of the abstract, and the work in the submission cannot be presented in a symposium or poster at the main SPSP conference.
All submissions are due by November 20th, and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student Talk: Graduate students are invited to submit proposals to give a 25-minute talk about first-authored work.
Data Blitz: Graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and early career (i.e., pre-tenure) scholars are invited to submit proposals for a data blitz talk. Data blitz talks allow presenters to discuss their work in a brief format.
Poster Session: Graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and early career (i.e., pre-tenure) scholars are invited to submit proposals for a poster presentation.
