SRP Annual Meeting
Twenty Third Annual Meeting of the Society for Research in Psychopathology
Thursday, September 10, 2009 through Sunday, September 13, 2009

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PRESENTERS: Symposia. Symposia/panel discussions are 90 minutes in length and include presentations from several speakers on a related topic. These talks are generally followed by integrative comments from the chairperson or discussant, with time for audience discussion at the end. Symposia participants may be nonmember faculty, but not students. In planning a symposium it is important to allow sufficient time for audience questions and discussion.

Papers. Submissions accepted for oral presentations will be organized by the Program Committee into sessions that generally include three to five papers (15 minutes per paper) and time for discussion. Each of the five individual oral presentations to be presented during this session must be no longer than 15 minutes. This will allow a couple of minutes between presentations for questions and change of speakers. If you wish to allow more time for questions, you must shorten your talk. Please plan to arrive 20 minutes early to the session so that PowerPoint files can be loaded and the equipment checked.

Posters. A poster submitted by a non-member or an associate member must be sponsored by a full member. Submissions for poster-only may include presentations of works in progress (e.g., studies for which data collection is well under way, but for which full results are not yet available). Boards on which to place your poster will be 4 feet high and 4 feet wide.


HOTEL INFORMATION: The jewel in the crown of the upper Mississippi is undoubtedly the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The large, urban University of Minnesota perched on the eastern bluffs of the river across from the vibrant downtown of Minneapolis together constitute a crucible of culture and excitement.

The Radisson features well-appointed rooms, and a great diversity of restaurants, night clubs and shopping options. It is just a short walk from the Mississippi and the downtown arts district.
