The New England Psychological Association (NEPA) is pleased to announce the call for submission for the 2023 NEPA conference and the opening of the submission portal. The 2023 meeting will be held on October 21, 2023 at Worcester State University.

These dates provide great opportunities for students and faculty to present work completed during the past semester or the summer, for new faculty and those approaching tenure and promotion to add peer-reviewed presentations to their vitae, and for professionals across the psychological sciences to share their ideas and passions.

NEPA Priority Submission Deadline: February 1, 2023 through August 1, 2023 for symposia, papers, and posters representing all areas of the psychological sciences. NEPA will continue to receive and review posters through September 15, 2023.
