IMPS 2021 Abstract Submission Now Open!

Submission Deadline: March 31, 2021


The Psychometric Society Invites You to Submit an Abstract for an Individual Oral Presentation, Individual Poster Presentation, or Symposium for Virtual IMPS 2021

This year IMPS will be again be using the ExOrdo software to collect both abstracts and on-demand presentation materials. ExOrdo will also provide the platform for our live virtual meeting. All abstract submissions will occur through the weblink:

An individual oral presentation is an approximately 15-minute lecture-style presentation having one or more authors. The individual oral presentations will be organized into sessions of approximately five presentations based on topic similarity. An individual poster presentation is a poster-style presentation having one or more authors. We anticipate coordinating the poster session to occur at a single time during the conference and in a format that facilitates interaction with the individual poster presenters. 

symposium is a group of talks that will appear in one session, and are brought together by a symposium organizer. For each submitted symposium, the symposium organizer should first submit a symposium overview abstract. This abstract should provide a brief (<250 words) description of the overarching theme of the presentations to be included in the symposium as well as the last names of the symposium presenters for each talk. The only author listed for the symposium overview submission abstract should be the symposium organizer. For the separate talks that will be included in the symposium, the presenters are asked to submit their abstracts individually through the Ex Ordo system as symposium presentation submissions. As a part of the submission process, each presenter will have the opportunity to provide the name of the symposium organizer for the presentation so that the corresponding symposium for the submission can be identified. If submitting a symposium presentation, please be sure to identify the name of the symposium organizer for the presentation. The symposium organizer is responsible for ensuring that all presenters submit their abstracts by the submission deadline. The acceptance decision for a symposium will apply to all presentations included in the submitted symposium.

As was the case for IMPS 2020, there will be an on-demand feature for IMPS 2021 in which conference registrants can access uploaded conference presentations and related presentation materials in advance of the conference. Details on this process will be provided upon acceptance of your proposal. All individual oral and symposium presenters are asked to upload their recorded presentations into the on-demand model of ExOrdo. Poster presenters must upload their presentations and may, if they wish, also upload a recorded video presentation.

If your submission is accepted for presentation, you are expected to upload your on-demand presentation at least two weeks prior to the start of the conference. 

In addition, to ensure your inclusion in the program, you must also register and pay registration fees by May 31, 2021. This includes all symposium presenters. Individuals who have not registered by this date will be removed from the conference program.

Abstract submission deadline is Wednesday, March 31, 2021. Acceptance notification decisions will be provided around April 20th. 

Additional details regarding IMPS 2021 will be posted to the society website and be updated as the conference draws closer. Please address any questions regarding the submission process to
