Call for Research Posters

The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta (PAA) invites all psychologists, provisional psychologists, and students to participate in a poster session spotlighting research or innovative clinical practice at the CAP & PAA Conference – Psychology IS Health, on 03 October 2020 at the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary.


The poster should present your research in a highly understandable and compelling manner for psychologists across diverse specializations (think “elevator pitch”).

Additional criteria for submitted posters:

  • You are the principle researcher: the majority of the work has been completed by you
  • Your research makes a notable contribution to the profession of psychology
  • Your poster will be evaluated for both the content (i.e. originality, focus, relevance to the profession etc) as well as for the design qualities (i.e. readability, appeal, graphics etc)


PAA will review all poster presentations on both content and originality.   The winners will receive a monetary award of $250, sent to the primary author.

All primary authors of selected posters will receive a 50% discount on the cost of conference registration.


Submit the Application Package by 31 May 2020 to Brittany.
