IPPA Call for Proposals and Call for Volunteers
The CPPA is absolutely thrilled that the next International Positive Psychology Association World Congress will take place here in Canada in lovely Montreal July 13-16, 2017.

We are encouraging Canadian positive psychology scholars, researchers, students and practitioners to submit a proposal to speak at the conference. IPPA is the largest gathering of positive psychology specialists from around the world. This is a wonderful opportunity to get your research and practice on the world stage. Submission deadline is September 30, 2016.

IPPA is also looking for volunteers to assist in reviewing proposals for the Fifth World Congress. Reviewers will aid the program chairs in assessing the quality of proposals submitted and provide expert information that can be used in making final decisions on the Congress program.

There are two review committees: one focused on science and one on applied practice. Ideally, reviewers should possess the following:

– Expertise in either science or practice of positive psychology.

– For science committee: a Ph.D. or equivalent in an area of science that contributes to positive psychology. Advanced doctoral students are also welcome. In addition, reviewers should have an active research program relevant to positive psychology.

– For practice committee: formal academic training in positive psychology as well as a minimum of two years engaged in the professional practice of positive psychology.

The review period is scheduled for October 10-28, 2016. If you are interested in volunteering as a proposal reviewer, please complete this volunteer form by September 15th and one of IPPA’s committee chairs will contact you with additional information.
