Call for poster presentations for the 

2022 Annual ISPA Convention


Poster Topics

Any poster presentation that is of interest to school psychologists is appropriate for committee review. Poster sessions are an informal format for presenting research data or highlighting innovative practices. In the research category, you are encouraged to present any current research.  Research is a broad category and can include many types of methodologies, such as experimental research, applied research, program evaluations, or literature reviews addressing research questions. In the practice category, you are encouraged to highlight any innovative practice or intervention.  You can share preliminary results or final outcomes for the practice. 

Proposal Submission Requirements

Those interested in presenting must submit a (a) 8-10 word title, (b) a 25-50 word abstract of their presentation, (c) a one to two page summary of the presentation, and (d) 2-5 keywords describing your poster.  You will also include the category of poster, primary presenter’s name, address, phone number, e-mail, place of employment, and name of additional presenters, all suitable for printing in the conference program.

  • November 8th, 2021 Call for posters opens.
  • December 20th, 2021 Call for posters ends. 
  • January 5th, 2022 Acceptance notifications will be sent.
  • January 21st, 2022 Submission of digital poster video and supplemental materials for posters deadline.

Evaluation criteria

Proposals are evaluated based on the quality of the submission and the degree of practitioner focus.  All posters will be submitted electronically on the ISPA website. 

Proposals must be submitted via a link on the ISPA webpage.

In the link, there is not an option to attach a word document, so it is recommended that you type up the abstract and summary in a word document and then copy and paste into the survey link when you are ready to submit.  

Presenters must clearly state who will serve as the contact person for future communications, as acknowledgement of acceptance, etc. will only be forwarded to one contact person.

Proposal Submission
*You must be an ISPA member to submit a Poster for Convention
Special Note:

Posters will look slightly different this year.  Everyone who submits a poster proposal will also be required (at a later date) to submit a short video presentation and supplemental materials.  All submissions that are considered to be of interest to School Psychologists and deemed appropriate after committee review, will be placed on the ISPA website for ISPA members to view and give feedback after the Winter Convention. A certain number of those who wish to be in-person will be given that opportunity as well.  Due to continuing changes through the COVID-19 Pandemic, the cap for the number of people allowed to complete in-person poster presentations is yet to be determined.  However, please know that we are working diligently and creatively to figure out the largest number of in-person poster presentations as possible.

Contact Mary Satchwell ([email protected]) and Sharon Gwaltney ([email protected]) with questions.

Please write “ISPA Winter Convention/Posters” on the e-mail subject line
