1st Canadian Scientific Meeting on Well-Being

May 23, 2018

NEW! In 2018, the Canadian Positive Psychology Association launches the 1st Canadian Scientific Meeting on Well-Being - platform for advancing rigorous wellbeing research in Canada and beyond.

We are currently accepting submissions for the First Canadian Scientific Meeting on Wellbeing ("Scientific Meeting"). Immediately following this meeting, the 4th Canadian Positive Psychology Association Conference ("Main Conference") will be hosted from 7pm May 23rd to 7pm May 25th.

The Scientific Meeting is primarily intended for researchers, graduate students, and honours thesis students. As such, the presentations will be geared toward an academic audience, though anyone interested in research findings on well-being is welcome to attendThe aim is to host an event which will enable Canada’s well-being researchers to share research insights and tools.

We invite submissions for 5- and 10-minute individual talks as well as poster presentations on all areas of well-being research, broadly defined. In addition to these presentations we will also hear from 3 distinguished keynotes and host a facilitated and interactive panel discussion. Across the day there will also be time allocated for debate, discussion, and networking.

Submissions should include a 200-word abstract with background, methods, results, and discussion, as well as a 150-word biography clarifying your education, institutional affiliation, and research experience.  If an abstract is not accepted for a 10-minute talk, it will automatically be considered for a 5-minute talk, and if an abstract is not accepted for an individual talk, it will automatically be considered for a poster presentation. You are welcome to submit the same abstract for the Main Conference as well, but we ask that your presentation/poster at the Main Conference be geared toward a more general audience, and offer concrete suggestions for how the research can be applied in attendees’ workplaces or personal lives.   

Finally, each presenter will be invited to sign up to create an optional 5-minute video-taped presentation with our videographer (during lunch and break times) in which your current research can be presented, as well your thoughts on what you look for in selecting graduate students. These videos will become a part of an online video library made available by the CPPA.
