This special conference feature is an exhibit of poster papers that will be continuous throughout the three day conference. The exhibit will be in meeting rooms and near the registration desk. In-Absentia graduate student poster authors do not need to be in attendance or register to submit a poster proposal. All other proposals to be considered will be from persons who will be registered to attend the conference and can bring their poster displays with their luggage.
A senior member of ICP is assigned to "host" each In-Absentia poster on display and to provide feedback to that student about excellent features and areas for improvement. Dr. Consuelo Barreda, ICP Board member, is Co-ordinator and Chair of In-Absentia Hosting and for all Review/Evaluation Teams. A Review panel will select first, second, and third place posters in terms of poster clarity, research quality, and significance to psychology, consistent with each category for proposals. Arrangements with ICP members planning to attend the conference will be made to transport In-Absentia posters to Brazil.
Dr Sherri McCarthy, ICP Board member who is on-site in Brazil this year, will serve as Co-ordinator and Chair for Regional Graduate Student posters. Her address is: Visiting Research Scholar, Universidade Federal de Rio Grande do Sul,Porto Alegre, Brazil. Two faculty from Universidade Federal de Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre will be coordinators for Regional Posters: Claudio Hutz,Ph.D. and William Gomes, Ph.D.
Awards for students come from funds contributed by ICP presidents. In 2004 the first prize was $50. The three ties for second place prize each received $15.
This is a continuation of last year’s poster session initiated to provide mentoring to graduate and early career psychologists and as an expression of ICP’s unique mission. ICP is a person-to-person association. As a mentor and incubator association, ICP strives to contribute to developing and encouraging psychology students, especially those who are interested in international psychology.
