We invite you to share your expertise at our congress!

Presentation Guidelines

IMPORTANT DATE
July 01st, 2024 Final Program Release, abstract book and unlock of the conference app

Overview Presentation Types

Oral presentation
Oral presentations (12+3 minutes) will be gathered into paper sessions of four to six speakers. The focus may be of theoretical, methodological, or applied interest.
Applied submissions should adopt a scientist-practitioner perspective, providing key references for the theoretical background underlying the applied program/intervention discussed.
Oral presentations should at least include:
• Objectives
• theoretical background
• design/approach/intervention
• results and discussion
The presenting author must be present during the session. Session chairs are chosen by the scientific committee and will take charge of time management during the session and will allow sufficient time for questions and discussion with the audience.

Poster presentation
Individuals or groups of authors can present their scientific work in the form of a poster. The poster will be allocated to one of the six poster sessions of 90 minutes. The first author is expected to be present during the whole duration of the poster session.
Poster presentations (RESEARCH) should at least include:
• short introduction
• theoretical framework
• problem statement
• brief description of methodology
• results summary
• implications of the results
Poster presentations (APPLIED) should at least include:
• short introduction
• setting/intervention
• theoretical background
• applied implications
• discussion

Scientific jargon must be kept to a minimum to ensure easiness of understanding from all participants. The poster format will be A0 (118.9 cm / 46.8” height x 84.1 cm / 31.1” width). A well-designed poster catches the attention and gives the scientific work the recognition it deserves. Recommendations for the design will be made available on the Congress website. Posters will have to be taken out at the end of the Conference Day to make space for the posters of the following day - otherwise, posters will be taken by the Organizing Secretariat and disposed of.

Symposium (60 minutes)
The symposia consist of oral presentations from multiple speakers and cover a specific coherent topic relating to Sport and Exercise Psychology. The focus may be of theoretical, methodological, or applied interest. The time allocation is up to a maximum of 75 minutes based on approx. 15 minutes per speaker or discussant plus 15 minutes Q&A.
Applied submissions should adopt a scientist-practitioner perspective, providing key references for the theoretical background underlying the applied program/Intervention discussed.

A symposium consists of 4-5 speakers. The speakers choose one groupleader as chairperson/corresponding person. This corresponding person is responsible for the abstract submission.

All listed presenters must be present during their symposium. Symposia chairs are expected to take charge of time management during the symposia and to allow sufficient time for questions and discussion with the audience.

Workshop (60 minutes)
The workshops involve active participation through interactive discussions, demonstrations, and/or experiential learning.
Research workshops can include, but are not limited to, research methods, ethics in research, theory or measurement development, grant writing and mentoring in scientific writing.
Applied workshops offer opportunities for practitioners to share their professional practice strategies. Evidence-based practice workshops will be given priority.
In order for your research or applied workshop submission to be accepted please make sure to include the following information:
• clearly stated learning objectives for participants
• specifics on the (interactive, hands-on) teaching methods
• techniques used to achieve these learning objectives
• details on materials that will be shared with the workshop participants on-site or following the session
A workshop consists of 1-5 speakers. The speakers choose one groupleader as chairperson/corresponding person. 

Network meeting
With the network meetings, we want to create space for different people to exchange ideas on various topics.
We have two categories of Network meetings:
- Invited Network meetings: These are meetings that are specifically organized for a group of individuals or participants who have been invited to attend. - Open Network meetings: These meetings are open to all congress participants.
Submission for the network meetings must be completed by the chair/convener of the network meeting. Submissions must include a general abstract (description and significance of the topic, purpose of the network meeting). The abstract may contain a maximum of 300 words. The title must not exceed 20 words.

Podium discussion (60 minutes)
Podium discussions provide an opportunity for public discussion of special topics among a selected group of participants.
We have two categories of podium discussions:
- Invited podium discussion: These are podium discussions that are specifically organized for a special group of individuals or participants who have been invited to participate as speakers or panelists.
- Open podium discussion: Open Podium Discussions are accessible to all congress participants.
Submissions must be completed by the chair/convener of the podium discussion. Submissions must include a general abstract (description and significance of the topic, purpose of the podium discussion). The abstract may contain a maximum of 300 words. The title must not exceed 20 words.

Gimme 5 Presentation (60 minutes)
As a relatively new format, we offer slots in one of three Gimme 5 sessions. Especially PhD students are encouraged to submit abstracts for this format, in which every presenter has five minutes for a maximum of five PowerPoint slides. After each short presentation, a discussion of up to three minutes is added. Ten contributions are to be presented within one session.

Special Session Roundtable (60 minutes)
Roundtable is a focused and unique discussion or meeting format. The goal of a roundtable is to facilitate a collaborative and interactive discussion where participants can share their knowledge, experiences, and insights on various topics related to sport psychology and its practical applications in the sports world. It's a forum for in-depth and engaging conversations among experts and enthusiasts in the field. Participants of the Roundtable could be: researchers, practitioners, athletes, educators, students, professionals from related fields, coaches, industry representatives.
