Dear Division 28,
I’d like to remind all members that it is time to start thinking about next year's convention in Toronto (August 6-9, 2015). Please consider submitting a proposal for a symposium, poster or paper, which is due December 1, 2014. We especially welcome symposia that involve both senior and junior scientists because one of our presidential initiatives for 2015 is to increase intergenerational collaboration and communication within Division 28.
If you have an idea for a proposal, but would like help pulling it together, please do not hesitate to contact the 2015 program chair (Matt Weaver, firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, if you have an idea for a collaborative program proposal, we would love to hear it. These proposals are due October 15, 2014 and should fall into one of these seven themes: 1) Competencies at the intersections of diversities, 2) Promises and pitfalls of technology, 3) Disparities in in health, wellness, justice and education, 4) Psychology of work and group dynamics, 5) Emerging areas of science, practice, and education: lifelong training for psychologists, 6) Violence, bullying, victimization and trauma and 7) Embracing interdisciplinarity: reaching out beyond psychology.
