The #7 best reason for submitting an abstract for this year’s conference in 
Raleigh, NC
SCTPLS is an organization of independent thinkers,
and the State of North Carolina was the first to declare independence from 
Great Britain, on April 12, 1776

The North Carolina flag also honors the Mecklenburg Resolves, signed in 
Charlotte on May 20, 1775 and asserting autonomy from England*
To present at the
Society for Chaos Theory in Psychology & Life Sciences 28th Annual 
International Conference
AUGUST 2-4, 2018

Submissions deadline is May 1, 2018!
Please submit those abstracts!
(We are still offering rapid reviewing and feedback on submissions.)
Celebrating more than 25 (almost 30) years!

Contemporary conditions across our planet have long been issuing a "clarion 
call" for nonlinear dynamical understandings and methods to address them. Many 
social scientists and pundits have noted – just in the last twelve months – how 
NLDS concepts such as “catastrophes,” “tipping,” “run-away” systems, and 
escalation, seem chillingly apropos. This year's keynote speakers are 
particularly attuned to the dynamics of ways we can engage with the world, 
human and otherwise, human praxis in its different forms. They have designed 
their talks to make inspiring, compelling, clear, and practical linkages to 
broaden and deepen our thinking and applications across the interdisciplinary 
breadth and areas of practice evident in the Society.
Join us at the conference with our fabulous keynote speakers!
Dr. Bill Warren (Department of Cognitive, Linguistic & Psychological Sciences, 
Brown University). Behavioral Dynamics and Human Agency.
Dr. Jamie Gorman (Engineering Psychology, School of Psychology, Georgia 
Institute of Technology). Dynamics in Human-Human and Human-Technology Systems: 
Models, Metrics, and Unifying Principles.
A note from your President: We are still offering rapid reviewing and feedback 
on your submissions. We encourage submissions across a wide range of areas.
•       Abstracts are between 150-250 words for posters, individual papers, 
short workshops and other alternative formats. Clear connections to nonlinear 
dynamics, chaos, complexity, fractals or related concepts are important. 
Include each speaker or author’s organizational affiliation and/or contact 
•       Abstracts for symposia or panel discussions may be longer at up to 500 
words. For symposia, it is important to include the content of EACH speaker's 
contribution. The typical format for a symposium is for all speakers to give 
presentations with time following for discussion. The typical format for a 
panel discussion is inquiry-based and dialogic. Please communicate the theme of 
your research or practice-based applications of nonlinear science within the 
title of your abstract.
•       For experimental work, you will want the background, aims and 
framework, mode of inquiry, methods and samples, outcomes, conclusions and 
implications to be clear andexplicit.
•       For panel discussions, you will want to provide a brief overview of and 
introduction to the topic, relevant background of panelists and sample 
questions that will be used to prompt your panel member discussion.
•       For symposia or workshops, you will want to describe your current 
research, the techniques you used for conducting your research and how it 
applies to nonlinear behavioral, social and/or life science. Please emphasize 
the skills and new learning that attendees can expect to acquire.
•       For all abstracts: Assist the reader in understanding your connection 
to nonlinear dynamics, chaos, complexity, fractals and/or related concepts. 
Please highlight the overall value added to your area of practice (e.g., 
introduces a new method, information, perspective, issue; calls into question, 
confirms present knowledge or clarifies understanding).
•       Choose a category: The web-submission form allows you to select from 
the following: 1) Empirical (e.g., presentation of empirical results of a 
study), 2) Theoretical (e.g., empirically testable theoretical development), 3) 
Applied (e.g., social, cultural, organizational and/or inter- relational 
dynamics; business, product and/or marketing development; practice-based 
applications involving clinical interventions), 4) Quantitative (e.g., 
computational or statistical modeling), 5) Qualitative (e.g., non-quantitative 
analysis of empirical data), 6) Philosophical or artistic (e.g., epistemology, 
philosophy of science, aesthetics, or audio-visual demonstrations).
•       Additional Information
•       Each person may submit up to two presentations as first author and 
serve as co- author on additional work submitted by others.
•       All presenters are invited to prepare your papers for possible 
publication in the Society’s peer reviewed research journal Nonlinear Dynamics, 
Psychology, and Life Sciences.NDPLS uses American Psychological Association 
(APA) style. Click JOURNAL on the SCTPLS web site to access Instructions for 
Authors. NDPLS accepts manuscripts all through the year, but please use October 
1, 2017 as the target date for submitting to allow us to make up a special 
Conference Presentations issue.
And, REGISTRATION for the conference and workshops is open at
* Note: While current historical thinking largely rejects the 1775 Mecklenburg 
document, whose original content was lost, as a predecessor of the Declaration 
of Independence, it nevertheless also represents an important and radical 
assertion of sovereignty.
