Thank you for your interest in presenting at SPARC! Submissions can be filled out below in the following survey.
Please be aware of the following guidelines for submissions:
SPARC presentations are generally 10-15 minutes presentations. In years past this has been live but due to COVID-19 restrictions we are asking for prerecorded videos, PowerPoints (20-30 slides maximum) or written reports (10 pages maximum).
SPARC presentations span many different interests and pursuits. We encourage all of these interests and have been able to share many new and intriguing research ideas through our entire department. This can vary from a research project, thesis, dissertation, upcoming publication, term paper, newfound interest in psychological phenomena, psychological exploration of a topic and more!
SPARC presentations require a faculty sponsorship. In order to get a faculty sponsorship you need to have express permission from a member of the psychology faculty to present on your topic of interest. Your professor may ask more questions to understand your project in further detail, give more insights for you to pursue or even ask to see your progress. This is a great time to get to work closer with your professors and let them know more about you!
Once the form is submitted our submissions committee will reach out to your faculty sponsor and then you should receive a response briefly afterward of approval of your submission. If they are any issues with your submission or we need further information you will be contacted so that we can have the information submitted correctly.
In rare circumstances we do reject submissions. This is mostly due to not receiving faculty sponsorship previous to submitting. Most of the time we will ask for more information about a presentation before we have to proceed with rejection.
We look forward to seeing your submissions and sharing ideas with one another!
