1. Presenters must be prepared to attend the conference and to make their presentations in person.

    We are excited to welcome you back to an in-person conference! At the same time, we are continuing to explore together with Congress options for a hybrid format for Special Events.

  2. Presentations can be made in either English or French.
  3. Papers for the Conference – Deadline: May 23, 2023
    • Papers should be SINGLE SPACED, not exceeding the word count of 12,000 and should not have been previously published.
    • Complete your paper and email it to the relevant section head and the chair, discussant and participants in your session by May 23, 2023. E-mail addresses will be available in the on-line programme (click on the names in your session description to access their e-mail addresses).
    • Authors are reminded to include a note on their on-line paper indicating that their paper not be cited without permission from the author.
    • Failure to comply with the above mentioned deadline can result in the chair excluding the presentation from the session.
    • Further, discussants will be under no obligation to comment on the papers if they are not given a reasonable amount of time to read them. Such an action would be a loss to all attending the session.
  4. Discussing or Charing a Panel
    Presenters will be considered as possible chairs or discussants. Given that a successful conference depends on having, not only paper-givers, but chairs and discussants, the CPSA strongly encourages participants to pro-actively offer their services in either/both of these roles to any of our 16 section heads and/or be willing if a request is made.
  5. Grants: CPSA Travel Grants - Deadline: February 15, 2023
