Frequently Asked Questions
- Is it possible to just attend the pre-conference, or do you have to attend the larger ICAP in order to attend the LGBTQ Psychology pre-conference?
A: You are welcome to participate either of the events, and you do not need to participate in one in order to participate in the other. Registration for each event will be separate, however, those registered for the LGBTQ Psychology Pre-Conference will receive a discounted registration rate for the larger ICAP.
- My research is not exactly in the area of Psychology, can I still submit?
A: Yes! Although this is predominantly a psychology conference, LGBTQ Psychology itself is a very interdisciplinary field of research, so we welcome researchers from other fields, especially those in the areas of sociology, gender studies, sexology, political science and communication studies.
- What will the registration fees be for the pre-conference?
A: Registration fees are based on whether you are a member of CPA or IAAP and the country you are travelling from. All fees are in Canadian dollars. Early Bird registration for CPA/IAAP Members is $195 for the 2-day pre-conference and $350 for non-members. IAAP membership starts at $11 (for students) and goes up to $66, so it is a significant savings to register for IAAP and then pay the member rate for the pre-conference registration. You can join IAAP by clicking here. The Early Bird registration deadline is April 30th, 2018. After that time, registration rates will increase to $245 for members and $450 for non-members.
- I live on the other side of the globe from Canada! Is there any financial assistance available to attend the conference?
A: Yes! We will have travel bursaries available for international delegates and students. When you submit your abstract, be sure to indicate your interest in these opportunities. Depending on the country you are coming from, you may also qualify for reduced registration fees.
- Do I need to be a member of the Canadian Psychological Association or the International Association of Applied Psychologists in order to attend or present at the pre-conference or ICAP?
A: No. Members will receive preferential registration rates, but membership is not required. You can join IAAP by clicking here, student membership is $11 and full membership ranges from $46 to $66. For more information on becoming a member of the Canadian Psychological Association (and SOGII), click here.
- Is it possible to submit an abstract in French?
A: Yes! For the LGBTQ Psychology Pre-Conference, both French and English poster presentations will be accepted. Depending on the number received, we may also accept French data blitz presentations. For the larger ICAP convention, all types of submissions can be in either French or English.
Est-il possible de soumettre un résumé en français?
R: Oui! Pour la préconférence portant sur la psychologie LGBTQ, les présentations d'affiches en français et en anglais seront acceptées. En fonction du nombre de présentations reçues, nous pouvons également accepter de courtes présentations en langue française. Pour la conférence générale de l'Association Internationale de Psychologie Appliquée (ICAP), tous les types de soumissions peuvent être en français ou en anglais.
