2016 Summer Conference

Minneapolis, Minnesota
June 24-26, 2016

“Giving psychology away: Sharing research through teaching, interdisciplinary collaboration, and public engagement” -- This year’s theme will emphasize ways in which we can make the results of psychological research available to a wide range of audiences. The conference will offer a forum for the exchange of research findings, scholarly and pedagogical ideas, and social action.  SPSSI members are well-positioned to share our work in ways that can help make meaningful changes in areas of national and global concern, such as climate change and the future of the planet, racism and intergroup relations, growing income inequality, health and health care, and education.  Please join us in Minneapolis for the stimulating and collegial atmosphere for which SPSSI conferences are known and appreciated.

June 24-26, 2016, at the Commons Hotel on the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Information about registration and about how to submit proposals for symposia, papers, and posters will be available soon.

Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice.
