MediaPsych 2019 - The 11th Conference of the Media Psychology Division of the German Psychological Society
Chemnitz, September 4-6, 2019
The 11th Conference of the Media Psychology Division of the German Psychological Society will take place from September 4th to 6th, 2019, at Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany. Both, the division and the local organizers, (Peter Ohler & Günter Daniel Rey) sincerely invite all of you to come to Chemnitz to join the discussion.
National and international Researchers from all areas of media psychology as well as associated disciplines are invited. We welcome contributions focused on a broad range of topics that demonstrate the importance and impact of ‘the media’ in its various forms.
The conference will be held in English. The program will include keynote presentations, roundtable discussions, thematic panels and sessions and poster sessions. The division will also give out the Best Paper Award 2019 at the conference. In cooperation with the Journal of Media Psychology, the conference will also host a special pre-registered reports panel of JMP with a separate Call for Papers which can be found below.
The conference will be part of a ”thematic week on Digitization” at TU Chemnitz with several ancillary academic and public events. More information on all the events will be available on the conference website in winter 2018. The full program of all events will be available in Spring 2019.
The conference invites several types of submissions:
- Position papers/Theoretical Papers (extended abstract of 1000 words)
- Research Reports (abstract of 500 words)
- Posters (abstract of 500 words)
- Panel session proposal (3 to 4 contributors plus a discussant; panel session proposals require a 500 word rationale for the panel as well as 500 word abstracts for each contribution)
Submitted proposals should provide (1) a brief description of the theoretical background, (2) research questions, and (3) a summary of the methodological approach. Please do not include any results of your study in the submission. Submissions will be judged on quality of theory and methods, not results. However, participants are expected to present their results at the conference.
All submissions must be anonymous (all identifying information must be removed from the paper). The indicated word count does not include references and figures.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Conference Committee. Each author may submit and present only one contribution as first author; additional contributions as co-author are welcome. The submission system will be available from January 1st to April 1st, 2019 via the conference website.
The conference will be preceded by a Workshop for PhD students of media psychology, jointly organized by Leonard Reinecke, Özen Odağ and Diana Rieger. The workshop will take place on first day of the conference (September 4, 2019 ). A maximum of 12 doctoral students will be accepted. The application deadline is May 15, 2019. More information on the workshop will be available on the conference website in Spring 2019.
