I am the Forensic Psych Rep for the Psychology Postgraduate Affairs Group (PsyPAG). I am calling for as many Forensic Psych postgraduate students (MSc & PhD) and trainees to attend PsyPAG's 2013 conference.
PsyPAG is a national organisation for all psych postgrads based at UK Institutions. PsyPAG is run by postgrads for postgrads, and aims are to provide support for postgraduate students in the UK, to act as a vehicle for communication between postgraduates, and to represent postgraduates within the British Psychological Society (BPS). It also fulfils the vital role of bringing together postgraduates from around the country.
There no official membership scheme. If you are a postgraduate student/trainee, then you're automatically a member. Visit us for further information.
The 28th Annual Conferece is being held at Lancaster University from 17-19 July, 2013. There are three major keynotes speaking; namely, Prof. Graham Hitch, Prof. Charlie Lewis, and Prof. Rob Briner. There is also a full social programme planned, including a wine reception and conference dinner.
The turn out last year for forensic postgrads was great and I am hoping to see many more attend this year. I am particularly keen for those conducting research to submit an abstract for an oral presentation, as I am running a Forensic Psych symposium. So if you think your work relates to Forensic Psych in any way, please consider submitting. You may present a research paper, new data, or a literature review. I'll also welcome presentations on planned research, as along a good rationale and a discussion on the expected results is included. For those who do not want to give a talk can submit a poster presentation.
You can find info on the Forensic Symposum (and others) here.
Registration, abtract submission, and accommodation details can be found here on the main site.
