Abstract Submission Due

Extended until 21st of February 2018

Invitation to Submit

We invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at the 2018 Experimental Psychology Conference.

This meeting provides a forum for presenting new research across the broad spectrum of experimental psychology. EPC has been held annually since the first meeting at Monash University in 1974.

There has always been a focus on graduate students providing their first talks. The extra question time allows for constructive, rather than telegraphic, feedback.

As there are limited places for talks, some abstracts submitted for talks may be offered posters. Authors in these cases will be advised and asked to confirm whether they wish to present a poster.

At the Conference

Audiovisual Equipment

Each session room will be equipped for the presentation of PowerPoint slides and will include:

  • a data projector
  • computer with external speakers
  • lectern
  • microphone at the lectern

Presentation Files

Presenters will take their Powerpoint slides to the meeting on a memory stick, where a student assistant will help load your presentation.

Video and audio clips should be embedded in your Powerpoint slides rather than linking to external files.

It is preferable that all slides run from the presentation computer. However, if you have a complex presentation, which includes multiple media files, we suggest you bring your own laptop as a backup in case of difficulties loading your presentation.
