2018 Convention - Call for Proposals


CPA 2018 Convention 

Psychology in the Digital Age
Innovations and Opportunities for Psychologists and their Practices

 April 26-29, 2018

Hyatt Regency La Jolla

La Jolla, CA

We are in a technological revolution! Is psychology (are you?) keeping up with the current and impending changes?  Are you ready to respond to the expectations of your clients?  Do you know how new technologies can help you become more effective and efficient in your work? 

The 2018 convention will focus on the latest research about the impact of technology on the lives of children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. We invite proposals that will show us the latest innovative psychological research about the impact of technology, as well as those that demonstrate how technology is already being used to improve and enhance practice and patient outcomes. 

Our goal is to provide a learning environment at an advanced level for a sophisticated professional audience. 

When preparing your proposal:

(1)    Please notice the theme of the convention. We want proposals that illustrate the effective integration of research and practice and that provide attendees with new skills as we all find the best ways to integrate new and useful technologies into our work.

(2)    We are looking for thought leaders who have significant expertise and experience to share.  Please plan to present your information in an interactive format that will engage your audience in a meaningful way.  Our attendees do not appreciate a presentation heavily dependent on lecture and PowerPoint slides, so please keep that in mind. They do appreciate information that is current, thought-provoking and engaging.

(3)    Consider how you will demonstrate how your presentation can be applied; think in terms of what the attendees will walk away with that they can use with their patients, students, or in their work setting.  If you present research, think about how that research might influence practice.  If you are using technology in an innovative way in your own practice or work, think about how your experience might be useful to your colleagues.

Important Note:  We will have poster sessions (with a later proposal deadline) that are best suited for research presentations by students and faculty (e.g. dissertation research).

All presenters must register for the convention.  We do offer a discounted registration fee for presenters.

Firm Deadline for proposals:  August 28, 2017

Late or incomplete proposals will not be reviewed.

The CPA Call for Presentations process is web-based.
