South Florida Child Psychology Research Conference:

Sponsored by the Department of Psychology and the Graduate School of the University of Miami, and the Department of Psychology at Florida International University

Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at the University of Miami.


Call for Submissions:

At the University of Miami and Florida International University, graduate students and faculty members conduct innovative and exciting research in clinical and developmental child psychology. The South Florida Child Psychology Research Conference is an effort to engage graduate students and faculty members in a mutually beneficial event where research and mentoring are central.

The conference provides students the unique opportunity to present their research in an informal environment and receive feedback from peers and faculty members from both universities. Graduate students are encouraged to submit research presentations at any stage -- from presenting work on study planning to discussing final research findings. For example, discussion topics may include:

  • Developing a research proposal and design
  • Conducting collaborative or partnership-based research
  • Data collection issues
  • Interpreting data

GGraduate students at all stages of the research process are encouraged to submit proposals for either 20-minute traditional research presentations or 10-minute "TED talk" style presentations.

  • Traditional research presentations will follow the format you typically see at a conference: background, methods, etc.
  • "TED-talk" style presentations will follow a more informal style in which topics are made relatable to people outside your research area. See here and here for tips and examples.

  • Presentation title
