How can I be a part of the congress program?

The modalities of participation are oral communication, poster or symposium. The most common way to be part of the program is to submit an abstract in our portal here. If you want to organize your own symposium on a specific topic of clinical and/or health psychology on children and adolescent, you can send your proposal by email investigacion_aitana@umh.es 

The proposal must include: (1) title of the symposium, (2) abstract of the symposium (250-300 words), and (3) the name and workplace of the proposed presenters.

Symposia have a duration of 50 minutes and consist of 4 oral communications, one of them can be presented by the coordinator/organizer itself, although it is not a requirement. Each presentation will last 10 minutes, and there will be some time for discussion (10 minutes). As coordinator of symposium, you would be the responsible of introducing the symposium participants, present your own communication (if applicable), and moderate the debate. Please, note that the presenters of communications in symposia cannot participate as moderators or presenters at symposia or other activities of the congress program. This decision of the organizing committee is based on the desire to spread the maximum number of works from several research teams and professionals. The deadline for submitting your proposal of symposium is 30 January 2017. The scientific committee will evaluate your proposal and will communicate you the decision as soon as possible. Later, you will be prompted the title and an abstract of each oral communication, and contact details for each presenter to formalize the proposal of symposium.

What should I do when I get home from the congress?
