CALL FOR ABSTRACTS – Harvard Women in Psychology’s Annual Trends in Psychology Summit (TiPS)

September 22, 2021

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for a virtual conference hosted by the Harvard University Women in Psychology group. Please also save the date if you are interested in attending. Attendance is open to everyone and is free.



Harvard Women in Psychology’s Annual Trends in Psychology Summit (TiPS)


Harvard University’s Women in Psychology (WiP) invites abstracts for oral presentations and posters for our annual Trends in Psychology Summit (TiPS). The goal of TiPS is to promote and celebrate the work of women and underrepresented genders in psychology while learning about cutting-edge science. We also hope that this summit will serve as a platform for trainees in Psychology –  especially early career graduate students, undergraduates, and research assistants – to share their work and learn from more established scientists. The conference will be held virtually and free of cost on November 12th, 2021.


The conference includes an exciting line-up of keynote speakers, including:

– Susan Carey, Harvard University

 Yael Niv, Princeton University

 Ann Kring, University of California, Berkeley

– Sylvia Perry, Northwestern University


Who can attend this conference?

Attendance is open to all, regardless of gender identification. However, to highlight the work of underrepresented genders, oral presentations and posters will be restricted to underrepresented genders (e.g., female identifying, transgender, nonbinary, and other gender minority ). 

Dates and Details:

Due to COVID-19, TiPS will be held virtually, via Zoom and Gathertown. There are no registration fees or costs associated with this conference as Harvard University’s Department of Psychology has graciously funded this event.
