Call for Submissions

Technology fluctuate with new ideas and new sparks of ingenuity. Whether it be new software that maps cliff side erosion, cars that can drive themselves or a new phone with face feature compatibility? Technology is vast and it is because of this developers and researchers can get in on the ground floor to present and share their own ideas.

This spring the American Psychological Association will give scientists, practitioners, policymakers, and students from around the world a platform to share and present their new studies on the nexus of humanity and technology. These interactions include but are not limited to artificial intelligence, robotics, mobile devices, social media, virtual/augmented reality, gaming, geographic information systems, autonomous vehicles, and biomedical technologies

Basic research: How humans understand and use technology, impacts of technology on human experience and behavior.

Applications: Development, use, and impact of specific technologies in domains such as aging, education, mental and physical health, recreation, and the workplace.
Broader Implications: Ethical and policy questions concerning the opportunities and challenges arising from human-technology interaction
