Submitting Your Session

The SIOP submission deadline is firm. The submission site will close at 5:00pm Eastern Daylight Time on October 11, 2023. Traffic on the site is extremely heavy as the deadline approaches, and submitters should plan to complete their submissions well in advance of the deadline. No exceptions to the deadline will be made for any reason. The SIOP submission process is entirely online. Only submissions received through the online process will be accepted for review.

Please click here for a step-by-step guide to submitting your session. 


When submitting your session, you will be asked to check a box confirming the following information:

  •   I affirm that my proposed submission meets all applicable criteria in the Call for Proposals.
  •   I affirm that if this submission is for any session type other than a poster or master tutorial, it must contain speakers from at least two different affiliations.
  •   I affirm that all speakers understand that they must pay the registration fee to present at the conference (in-person or virtual).
  •   I affirm that all presenters in the proposed session have the legal right to present and distribute all information included in the submission.
  •   I affirm that there will be no substitutions of speakers or papers within my session after submission.
  •   I affirm that the speakers in this submission are speakers in no more than three proposals, including this one.

Checklist: Before You Begin the Online Submission Process


  I have my SIOP username and password (contact if you need help).

  I am an active member of SIOP (my current year dues are paid).

  I have contacted all presenters in my session to confirm their availability and eligibility to present in the mode I’ve selected (i.e., in-person, virtually, flexible).

  All non SIOP members participating in my submission have created an account at (Note: creating an account is not synonymous with becoming a SIOP member).

  I have written and verified with all coauthors my session’s APA-style citation according to these guidelines.

  The proposal document for my submission has been prepared according to the instructions in the Preparing and Formatting Your Proposal Document section.

  I have access to the submission site walkthrough to help with any questions I may have during the submission process.

  I have set aside 20-60 minutes for completing the online submission process (assume 60 minutes, as submission deadline approaches due to heavy site traffic).


Checklist: Before You Click 'Submit'



  Have all presenters/contributors (including all paper authors) been added as co-authors? 

  Have all co-authors been assigned a role (i.e., speaker or non-speaking contributor)?
