Call for Abstracts


First Announcement

Dear ISPA members and non-ISPA friends and colleagues,

The International School Psychology Association (ISPA) and the Local Organizing Committee invite your submissions to the scientific program of the 42nd Annual Conference ISPA 2020 which will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus from 14th to 17th of July 2020.

The online abstract submission system will open on November 15th, 2019.

The theme of ISPA 2020 conference is “WORKING WITH SCHOOLS & FAMILIES TO STRENGTHEN CHILDREN”. It was developed with a forward looking vision to recognize that all children need to be strengthened to face the challenges of today and the demands of tomorrow. We look forward to a rich and inspiring scientific program with invited keynote talks by internationally distinguished scholars and thematic sessions that support the Theme and Hot Themes of the conference.

ISPA 2020 encourages researchers, scholars, practitioners, trainers, early career professionals, students, and policy makers to submit their proposals for paper and poster presentations, symposia, roundtable discussions, and workshops to be included in the thematic sessions of the scientific program. Considering that school psychology is an applied science, ISPA 2020 welcomes submissions of both theoretical and practical focus that relate to the conference theme, hot topics and content domains, and are of interest to an international audience. Given the interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of the work in school psychology, ISPA 2020 welcomes submissions from other related fields of psychology, education, public health, mental health, etc. English is the official language of ISPA 2020.
