The 128th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association

Division 40 – Society for Clinical Neuropsychology – welcomes your proposals for division programming for the 2020 APA convention, which will take place August 6-9, 2020 in Washington, DC. Proposal types include symposia, data blitz sessions, skill-building sessions, discussions, and posters. Note that as of this year, APA is no longer accepting individual paper submissions. 

The deadline for submissions is December 2, 2019 at 5pm (EST).

Detailed description of proposal guidelines and submission procedures can be found at

You do not have to be a member of Division 40 to submit a proposal. However, it is easy and inexpensive to join (click here to join)!

All proposals must be submitted through the APA submission portal, which may be accessed here. We encourage you to submit your proposal prior to the December 2 deadline to avoid potential technical difficulties that may occur when large numbers of individuals try to access the submission portal at the same time.
