The 2021 Annual Meeting will extend the 2020 theme of Collaboration to include a specific orientation towards equity, diversity, and social justice in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and enduring structural inequities that have been laid bare by the pandemic.
Abstracts can be submitted for Workshops, Symposia, Individual Papers or Posters, Works in Progress, and Trainee Fellowship Papers.
Workshops that allow for participants to gain skills in issues related to Collaboration or cultural psychiatry writ large are strongly encouraged and will be given priority. Submissions based on qualitative, quantitative, or mixed-methods primary data and clinical encounters will be given preference over position pieces. Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts early. SSPC will provide technical assistance for abstract submissions up to 48 hours before the deadline.
All submissions undergo a multiple-reviewer selection and scoring process. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent by early 2021. After notification of acceptance, all presenters (including workshop co-facilitators and discussants) will be required to pay the conference registration fee by February 1st for their submission to be included in the annual meeting program.
Abstract submission deadline is December 1, 2020 December 11, 2020
