There is a limit of two submissions per person in a first-author role (i.e., first author of a poster, individual paper, or paper within a symposium). 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Individual Papers 

Individual Paper proposals will be grouped into sessions of 4 papers. These standalone individual papers will be organized into thematic sessions regarding a similar theme by the conference organizing committee. 

Sessions will be assigned a Chair by the Program Committee. Each session will be 90 minutes. Presenters will be allotted 15 minutes each; 30 minutes will be reserved for a Q&A period to be led by the Chair. NOTE: Some proposals submitted as paper presentations may be accepted as poster presentations.

Individual paper presentations proposals are encouraged to present empirical findings from new lines of research that are not yet published.  

Submissions for paper presentations should include a proposal of no more than 500 words (approximately 2 double-spaced pages) containing the following: title, introduction to the research question(s), description of methods, results, brief discussion and implications. In addition, proposals may contain up to two figures, tables, charts or graphs (reference list is not required). 

Criteria for Proposal Selection: 

1. Focus of the proposal is on emerging adulthood (age range 18-29).

2. Importance of the topic related to the Thematic session focus: close relationships topics and innovative research methods.

3. For empirical presentations, methods must be appropriate for the  research question(s). Research using quantitative, qualitative, and  mixed methods are all encouraged. 

Submission Deadline: February 28th

Notification of Decisions: March 27th.

Expedited Review: To accommodate international travel and special circumstances that may warrant an extended period between decision notification and the conference, we are offering expedited reviews to those whose circumstances qualify.

Proposals submitted for expedited review are due on January 10th and notifications will be granted within the next two weeks (January 24th).
