The Rehabilitation Psychology Interest Group invites submissions for the Rehabilitation Psychology Interest Group (RPIG) Conference Prize.
The Rehabilitation Psychology Interest Group (RPIG) Conference Prize promotes active participation in the Society’s annual conference by members working with rehabilitation populations.
Nominees must be members of the Rehabilitation Psychology Interest Group presenting an item at the annual conference of the Society.
There will be no call for nominations. All papers and posters being presented at the Society’s annual conference will be considered for eligibility for the Award.
In judging the nominations for the Rehabilitation Psychology Interest Group Conference Prize, the selection committee will:
A member of the selection committee will attend the presentation of each item at the annual conference that is eligible for the prize and rank each item on a scale of 0 (criteria not met) to 10 (criteria met exceptionally well) against the three categories set out above.
The highest scoring item must have achieved an average score of 7 across the three criteria in order for any Award to be made. In the event that no item reaches an average score of at least 7, no prize will be awarded in that year.
In the event of a tied score, the National Convener will determine the winner.
Successful candidates for the Rehabilitation Psychology Interest Group Conference Prize will receive an award of $500 and a certificate.
The award will next be administered at the 48th APS Annual Conference to be held in Cairns from 8-12 October 2013.
