General Information

Proposals are sought for papers, posters, symposia, and panels to be presented on any topics related to aviation psychology. All proposals are to be submitted electronically via the Proposal Submission link below that will open in September 2014.The deadline for proposal submission is October 5, 2014.

The final decision of acceptance and format of presentation is made by the program committee. At least one author of an accepted paper must agree to attend and present at the Symposium. All accepted proposals, regardless of format, are invited to submit a paper to be included in the Symposium Proceedings.

Spoken Presentation or Poster Presentation of Individual Papers

Individual papers can be presented in either of two formats: Spoken presentation or Poster presentation. The two formats are considered as having equal status in the Symposium and presenters of either format can submit full papers to be published in the Symposium Proceedings. Spoken presentations of related topics will be organized into sessions presented in parallel sessions. A typical spoken presentation is 15 minutes in duration followed by a 5-minute discussion period. Posters have their own dedicated sessions that offer a more interactive forum for information exchange than do spoken presentation sessions. The area available for each poster presentation is 8ft widex 4ft high (2.44m x 1.22m). There are no poster presentations in absentia.

A proposal for a spoken presentation or a poster consists of an abstract of no more than 250 words. The web-based submission process will collect the contact information for all authors and descriptive keywords to aid the scheduling process. Authors should indicate their preference for the format of presentation at the time of proposal submission. Authors also should indicate whether they would present in an alternate format if space is unavailable in the preferred format.

Symposium or Panel Sessions

Symposium or panel sessions are organized around a specific topic. A typical symposium session would consist of four spoken presentations and comments from a discussant. A typical panel session would consist of four or five experts who might have varied perspectives on a topic. A moderator would conduct a debate among the panelists and/or a Question and Answer between the panelists and audience.

One individual must be identified as the organizer of the symposium or panel. This organizer also serves as the corresponding author for the session. The organizer is responsible for structuring the session and confirming participation from the other participants prior to proposal submission. The organizer is responsible for submitting one proposal for the entire symposium or panel but full contact information must be provided for all participants.

A proposal for a symposium or panel session consists of the following components.

  1. A title for the symposium or panel session.
  2. An overall abstract of no more than 500 words to describe the theme and thrust of the session. It should be made clear why a dedicated session is appropriate. Describe also the relevance and coherence of the individual presentation to the theme. For a panel session, the name, role (e.g., presenter, panelist, moderator), and perspective represented by each presenter should be provided.
  3. A title and abstract of no more that 250 words for each participating presentation.
  4. Author information for all participants

In sum, the organizer of a symposium or panel session will submit one overall abstract for the session and additional individual abstracts for each individual presentation. If accepted, participants in a symposium or panel session have the option of submitting one collective paper for the session or individual papers.

Audiovisual Equipment

For spoken presentations, a Window computer with Powerpoint projector will be provided in each room. Presenters may also bring their own computers. Apple computer users should bring a DVI-VGA adapter to connect with the projector. For poster presentations, each poster will have available an area of 8 ft wide x 4 ft high (2.44 m x 1.22 m) for display. Other equipment may be requested at the time of paper submission.
