Proposals for symposia could be submitted using the ONLINE FORM (available from Oct 15!)

All interested IOP members and researchers in psychophysiology are invited to submit an application for a symposia to be presented at the 19th World Congress of Psychophysiology.

The application form requires the following information:
1. Title of Symposium
2. Name(s) of Proponent(s)
3. Brief paragraph describing the timeliness and importance of the topic, the desired format and presenter diversity, if applicable.
4. Name and affiliations for all presenters and proponents.
5. The title and, preferably, a brief summary of each presentation.

Scientific quality, novelty of the presentations, the general scientific interest of the topic and appropriateness for the meeting are the primary selection criteria.
Proposals that address health and disease in order to increase the dialogue between basic and clinical psychophysiology are encouraged, as they increase the diversity of topics.
Organizers are also encouraged to include presenters of diverse genders and nationalities. Organizers are strongly encouraged to invite presenters from other institutions and laboratories.

Each symposium should preferably be 90 minutes or 120 minutes in duration, with four or five speakers (20-minute presentation) on interrelated topics.

The organizers of the accepted symposia will be kindly requested to ask each speaker to register and to submit his/her abstract (300-400 words) by March 15, 2018.

All accepted symposia and abstracts will be published as a Special Issue of International Journal of Psychophysiology, which will be distributed to all registered participants at IOP2018 and will be electrically published on ScienceDirect (Elsevier) with individual digital object identifiers (DOIs).

Important Note: Presenters in the symposia and workshops will not receive complimentary registration or honoraria. All symposia speakers are required to register for and attend the meeting.


Abstract submission will open on December 1, 2017. More information will be provided shortly.
