IMPS 2023 Abstract Submission Now Open!

Submission Deadline: February 27, 2023


The Psychometric Society Invites You to Submit an Abstract for IMPS 2023!

The IMPS 2023 Annual Meeting is scheduled to be an in-person meeting. The meeting will feature the keynote speakers, symposia, individual oral sessions, poster presentations, and networking events that the IMPS community has come to know and love.

The ExOrdo submission portal is now open, and 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. The individual poster presentations will occur concurrently over approximately two-hour period at a special poster session during the in-person conference. The poster session occurs at a time at which no other conference sessions are running.

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. NOTE: 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 in previous years, there will also be a competition for a limited number of student travel awards. Travel awards support travel to the International Meeting of the Psychometric Society for graduate students wishing to present their work at the conference. Applications will be judged by the quality of methodological innovation or creative application of statistical analysis to an issue in psychometrics. The awardees will have their registration fees waived and will receive funds to support their travel to the conference. Eligible applicants must be graduate students at the time of the conference. In addition to submitting an abstract, the applicant must upload the following in a single separate .pdf or .doc/.docx file where requested in the Ex Ordo system:

  • A cover letter including name, current affiliation, intended date of graduation, and contact information (address, telephone number, and email address)
  • A three-page summary of the research.

The selection panel will consist of several regular members of the Psychometric Society appointed by the Executive Committee. The candidates will be ranked and the top three will receive awards (possibly more depending on the availability of funds).

In addition, to ensure your inclusion in the program, all presenters must also register and pay registration fees by May 7, 2023. This includes all symposium presenters. Individuals who have not registered by this date will be removed from the conference program.

Abstract submission deadline is Monday, February 27, 2023.

Acceptance notification decisions will be provided in late March 2023.

We hope you will plan to join us in person at the IMPS 2023! The safety of our presenters and attendees is a top priority for the Psychometric Society. As the pandemic continues to evolve, we will closely monitor the situation and will modify our plan to best balance between safety and accessibility.
