Forum Science community
The 2019 Forum will be in Washington, DC, on June 28 – 29, 2019! We will host the Forum Science Community, online, where webcast attendees have the opportunity to present their research and interact with other attendees. We will accept abstract submissions until 11:59 pm (EST) on March 8, 2019. If your abstract is accepted for presentation we will prompt you via email to upload your presentation into our digital system, saving you both time and money!
Policy on Forum Registration
Anyone presenting at the Forum must register and pay the Forum’s registration fee, which provides you with access to all webcast content. Registration will open in early 2019.
Abstract Review Process
Abstracts must describe a complete representation of your work and cannot be a “work in progress” that has yet to yield discernible findings. We only accept abstracts that report findings from empirical work (e.g., experiments, controlled trials, archival database studies, psychometric studies, controlled observations, field studies, quantitative reviews). The work presented during our Forum Science Community program will undergo the same abstract submission and review process as the Forum Science Social program. At each Forum, four leaders in mental health research give addresses on innovative areas of research. Thus, we will be especially interested in abstracts that report research in these areas (i.e., for 2019: parent-child separation; adversity; immunology; treatment). However, we welcome abstracts on all research relevant to mental health, including work across the lifespan (e.g., young children, adolescents, adults)!
