One day research Symposium for Post-Graduates

Friday 13th June 2014


To provide an opportunity for postgraduate students to present their research findings to a wider psychologist audience than may usually be possible. Abstracts of the presented papers will be published on the BPS London and Home Counties branch website.

Benefits of presenting or attending:

The symposium will give an overview of research that is happening within the themes below which would probably not otherwise be published or disseminated. If you are still working on your research project, you can use your attendance to glean useful information about measures, methodologies and making sense of your data, as well as making valuable contacts with other likeminded researchers in the London and Home Counties area. If you would like to present your research as ‘work in progress' to a small and sympathetic audience of peers for comment and advice, then you could gain some new ideas about how to proceed.

Who should consider presenting a Paper?

Those currently beginning or engaged in postgraduate professional practice research, or those who have recently completed their thesis are encouraged to present their work. You are invited to send in your application to present your paper as soon as possible. Summaries (see Symposium Submissions below) will be scrutinised by a small panel of committee members and acceptance confirmed.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically, if possible, by 22 May 2014. Please state ‘Symposium paper' in the subject line. Please include a completed Application Form.
