Abstract Submission Guidelines
Abstracts must be submitted to one out of a range of topic tracks that are offered. Submitting authors are requested to check the entire list of tracks carefully so as to ensure they submit to the most appropriate track.
Workshop proposals should be submitted through the ‘Pre-conference Workshops’ submission link (click here for more information). The workshop proposals will be submitted separately from the main conference.
Each track will be chaired by two track chairs appointed by the Scientific Committee. The track chairs will assess the submissions within their tracks. The Scientific Committee has the final decision on the inclusion of abstracts and on the final presentation format.
Workshop Submission Guidelines
This category of submission refers to sessions provided on Tuesday 29th August 2017, before the official opening of the conference.
A workshop provides an opportunity for a group of participants to achieve a specific goal or address a particular problem. It may be designed to train or educate participants in a particular research methodology or theoretical approach, or to address a specific problem, such as how to use particular research findings in health care or policy. A workshop can also be a useful way to develop a consensus on a particular issue. For example, the goal of the workshop may be to produce a position statement or policy on a particular topic, to identify priorities in a specific area or to develop theoretical perspectives or methodologies. It should have a clear structure and require active participation by everyone involved.
The SYNERGY Board assesses workshop submissions in terms of their overall quality, their attractiveness for health psychologists, the expertise of the facilitators and the activities suggested to attain the workshop objectives.
