    INVITED CONGRESS PRESENTATIONS

    The ICAP2018 Program will include an exciting array of Congress Invited Presentations. Each of the different types of invited presentations will have been invited by the Congress Organizers, by one of the Divisions of the International Association of Applied Psychology (IAAP), or by one of the Sections of the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA); and each will address the Congress theme – Connecting Science with Solutions.

    The Invited portion of the Congress Program will include the following presentation formats:

    Congress Invited State of the Art Lecture

    Congress Invited State of the Art Lectures are special. The program will include only about 20 such lectures, and they are intended as focal points of the Congress. Each State of the Art Lecture is expected to provide an overview as well as feature breakthroughs in a specific domain of the science and practice of psychology. Collectively, these lectures are expected to be broadly inclusive by showcasing discoveries and advances likely to be of interest to members of all Divisions of the IAAP and to all Sections of the CPA.

    Individuals who give a Congress State of the Art Lecture are eminent researchers, practitioners, teachers, writers, etc., who are recognized leaders in their domain, who have been nominated by an IAAP Division or by a CPA Section, and selected by the Board of the ICAP2018 Scientific Program Committee.

    Individuals selected to deliver a Congress Invited State of the Art Lecture are expected to submit an informative abstract with the following information: a brief description of the research and/or practice topic domain addressed by the lecture; a summary of critical breakthroughs in this domain; and a statement highlighting the author’s objective for the lecture.

    Invited Keynote Address

    A keynote address is expected to identify and clarify emerging themes in a research or practice domain of psychology. A keynote address is not intended to review the state of the art in a research or practice domain of psychology.

    The Congress Program will include three different kinds of keynote addresses:
    Congress Invited Keynote Addresses, IAAP Division/CPA Section Invited Keynote Addresses, and
    Past CPA/IAAP President Keynote Addresses. Individuals who will give a Congress Invited Keynote Address were nominated by an IAAP Division or by a CPA Section, and selected by the Board of the ICAP2018 Scientific Program Committee. By contrast, individuals who will give an IAAP Division/CPA Section Invited Keynote Addresses were nominated and selected by their Division and/or Section; addresses by Past CPA/IAAP Presidents were invited by the ICAP2018 Congress Co-Presidents.

    For each keynote address, an abstract with the following information is required: a brief description of the research and/or practice domain addressed by the keynote; and a statement of the emerging themes, issues and/or questions that will be featured in the address.

    Invited Symposium

    The Congress Program will include three different kinds of invited symposia: Congress Invited Symposia, IAAP Division/CPA Section Invited Symposia, and Past CPA/IAAP President Invited Symposia. Individuals who give a Congress Invited Symposium were nominated by an IAAP Division or by a CPA Section, and selected by the Board of the ICAP2018 Scientific Program Committee. By contrast, individuals who give an IAAP Division/CPA Section Invited Symposium were nominated and selected by their Division and/or Section, while symposia by Past CPA/IAAP Presidents were invited by the ICAP2018 Congress Co-Presidents.

    A symposium is a format for delivering a series of Spoken Presentation that focus on the same topic.

    Each symposium is expected to include 5 presenters, of which one may or may not be a discussant.

    Each symposium is created and submitted by one person, called the symposium convenor (or moderator). The convenor/moderator can function in one of three manners: convenor/moderator only, presenter of one of the Spoken Presentations, or symposium discussant. Consistent with the international focus of the ICAP2018, preference will be given to symposia with presenters from 2 or more different countries. Symposia with all presenters from the same country will be considered only under exceptional circumstances.

    A submission for a symposium must include – for each presenter – an abstract with the same information as required for a Spoken Presentation submission (empirical and theoretical context and rationale for the studies or program/policy or intervention; the general method of the studies or the approach employed for the program/policy or evaluation; a summary of analyses, results and conclusions; and an overview of actions, recommendations, or impacts that occurred or that will be implemented or evaluated).

    In addition, each submission must also include an abstract of the symposium with the following information: a brief description of the symposium topic; a statement of what makes this topic novel, contentious, or pertinent to the Congress; and a clear statement of how each presenter will offer a unique approach/perspective to the proposed topic.

    A total of 85 minutes will be allocated for each symposium.

    IAAP Division President / CPA Section Chair Address

    In keeping with tradition, each IAAP Division President is given the opportunity to deliver a 55-minute address on a topic of their choosing, and for the ICAP2018, this opportunity will also be offered to each CPA Section Chair.

    For each Division President / Section Chair address, an abstract with the following information is required: A brief description of the research, practice, program, administrative issues, etc. that will be covered in the address, together with a succinct statement of how they will be addressed, illuminated or explored in the address.

    Master Lecture

    Master Lecture speakers are nominated/selected to help raise overall interest in the congress, and as a significant draw for attendees from multiple IAAP Division and CPA Sections. The role of a Master Lecturer is critical in keeping delegates absorbed and actively discussing the topics at hand. Master Lecturers engage from the very beginning, spark curiosity, make good use of visual aids, speak with passion and enthusiasm, include rarely-obtained information, and frequently test their engagement with the audience.
