Submission Guidelines


The conference welcomes individual papers, posters, symposia, and workshops submissions. All conference presentations will be in English. All submissions will be thoughtfully considered. The conference committee is open to research and/or professional presentations on any topics relevant to cognitive education and cognitive assessment. The committee is especially eager to receive proposals for papers, posters, symposia, and mini-workshops addressed to topics such as the following:

o Evaluation of programs of cognitive education (methods, reports of research)
o Language development in bilingual and transcultural settings
o Cognitive development of immigrant and culturally different children
o Assessment of cognitive development and learning potential
o Clinical applications of cognitive education
o Cognitive and learning abilities of people with special needs
o Cognitive methods in teaching the academic curriculum

Individual papers and reports
will be allotted 15-20 minutes each, including discussion and question/answer period. Abstracts should be no more than 500 words, presented in a single paragraph. The abstract should consist of the title, names of all authors (no degrees or affiliations), and a summary of the presentation. If the proposed presentation is a report of research, the abstract should specify the principal research question(s), the subjects, the method, and the results. What is usually presented in the Discussion section of a published paper should be reserved for the actual presentation, i.e., not presented in the abstract.

will be allotted up to 90 minutes. The abstract should give the title of the symposium, names of all speakers and the titles of their speeches, and a brief summary of the symposium. A discussant may be included (no title necessary).

Abstracts for posters should be the same as for individual papers and reports, but identified as poster proposals. Posters will be displayed in a viewing area. Presenters should be prepared to explain their work and answer questions about it. Posters may occupy 1-4 standard (8 ½ x 11 inches) sheets of paper, and may contain text and/or illustrations (tables, figures, and photos). Posters will be returned to their owners.

addressed to specific aspects of professional or scientific topics will be allotted 60-90 minutes. Examples of appropriate mini-workshop topics: description and demonstration of a teaching method or assessment instrument; methodological issues in program evaluation; teacher training for cognitive education; special applications of cognitive education (for example, in psychotherapy or speech/language therapy). Abstracts should give the title, presenter, and a brief synopsis of the work to be covered, as well as the proposed duration of the workshop (60 or 90 minutes), and any recommended prerequisites (for example, previous training in cognitive education or dynamic assessment).


All abstracts should be printed in 12-point Times New Roman font, preferably in Microsoft Word, suitable for duplication. Abstracts of accepted presentations will be duplicated and distributed to registered conference participants in a booklet.
Meeting rooms will be equipped with overhead projectors and portable computers connected to projectors for PowerPoint presentations. Please note that only PCs (not Macintosh) will be available. PowerPoint presentations must be on CD ROM or USB memory stick.
