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* CALL FOR ABSTRACTS OF PAPERS, SYMPOSIA, AND POSTERS To present at the Society for Chaos Theory in Psychology & Life Sciences 28th Annual International Conference AUGUST 2-4, 2018 NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERSITY, RALEIGH, NC USA 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! Submit your abstract(s) electronically at http://www.societyforchaostheory.org/conf/2018/cfp 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. INSTRUCTIONS FOR ABSTRACTS 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. Length • 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 information. • 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. Content • 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 http://www.societyforchaostheory.org/conf/2018/ ------------- * 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.
