CALL FOR POSTER
FROM GRADUATE STUDENTS AND
EARLY CAREER PSYCHOLOGISTS
To be announced
Under Construction for 2005
President Elect of the INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL
OF PSYCHOLOGISTS (ICP), Naty Dayan, Ph.D., The Fillipines, is ICP Scientific
Program Chair for 2004.
With her authorization a special innovation
is now issued for students and early career psychologists to submit poster
presentations for exhibit throughout the annual ICP conference, Jinan, China,
[Confucius’ birthplace] August 3-6, 2004. The Author does not need to be able to
attend the conference. Each presentation will be “mentored” by an ICP member.
1. This ICP innovation will take the form of an exhibit of poster papers
submitted by students/early career psychologists that would be near the
registration desk throughout the conference. The student would not need to be in
attendance or register to submit a poster paper.
2. A senior member of ICP would be assigned to "host" each poster on display, to
make a log of comments from other conference participants about the content and
form of the paper, and then to provide feedback to that student about excellent
features and areas for improvement.
3. There would be a vote taken from Board members to select first, second and
third place in terms of clarity, quality, and significance for
international/cross cultural/quality of life/peace/etc [focus to be broad
enough to capture a large segment of possible poster papers] psychology.
4. Three ribbons, blue, red, yellow would be given and the winner[s] would
receive membership in ICP free for a year. The first place [blue ribbon in USA
contests] would be asked to try to attend the next conference to do an oral
presentation, which would also be "coached" and given "feedback".
5. This would be a kick off for an innovative expression of the unique ICP
mission / focus -- by providing a unique service in the psychological community
-- as an "incubator" association ... a "proving ground" for developing and
encouraging international psychology students.
