We are seeking to bring together researchers from a variety of career levels and from multiple disciplines to present their empirical work on the psychology of architecture. Preference will be given to those submissions that are both methodologically rigorous and accessible to an interdisciplinary audience of scholars and practitioners.


You may submit a poster, an individual talk (no longer than 25 minutes, including Q&A), or a themed symposium (three to four presenters for 1 hour 30 minutes total, including Q&A). You may make multiple submissions. Women, underrepresented groups, and individuals from underrepresented regions of the world are particularly encouraged to submit their work. 

There are a limited number of travel awards available, and priority for these awards will be given to students and post-docs. You may indicate whether you would like to be considered for a travel award when you submit your presentation.

Topics may include (but are not limited to): 

  • built environments' effects on competition/cooperation

  • identity and personality expression in interior design

  • motivational and neural underpinnings of visual/spatial perception

  • built environment's effects on health and well-being

  • evolutionary foundations of modern design principles

Submission requirements:

  • presentation title, presentation key words, author name(s)/affiliation(s)

  • long abstract (500 words maximum): Please provide a summary of your research including information about your research questions, methods, and the relevance and practical applications of your work. Your abstract should be understandable to people outside of your field.

  • short abstract (200 words maximum): In the event that your your submission is selected, please provide a short summary of your presentation to be published in the event program.

  • special instructions for symposium submissions: Please submit a title for your symposium and a 200 word summary of your symposium's theme and why you believe it should be represented at the conference. In addition, please submit a title and 200 word abstract (but not a 500 word abstract) for each of the three-four presenters you would plan to have on your symposium.
