Posters, research talks, position talks, panel discussions, pre-conference workshops and demonstrations are submitted as individual abstracts for assessment.

Symposia and poster groups are submitted as a group in complete sessions. The session chair is expected to submit one summarizing session abstract and one abstract for each individual contribution. Groups will receive a shared overall assessment. One session chair and one co-chair (discussant) can be named for each session.

Please note the detailed explanations for the individual submission types.

By default, the submitter of an abstract is also set as the presenting author. In case of multiple authors, please, indicate the presenting author.

Abstract submission and evaluation

All abstracts submitted by 29 January 2016 will be examined by the program committee. Abstracts and their content will be handled confidentially. The abstracts will be evaluated by the program committee anonymously. So, please, make sure that your abstract does not include any author names.
Abstracts may be at most 2100 characters long (including spaces). Attachments and graphics are not permitted. The abstracts may be submitted in German or English.

Program committee

The program committee of the 2016 DGPs consists of invited experts in all areas of psychology. Their core duty is the independent evaluation of the submitted articles. The list of referees will be provided soon.
