The Behavioral Science & Policy Association (BSPA) will hold its annual conference virtually on May 4 and 5, 2023. More than 500 leading behavioral scientists, policy makers, executives, and members of the media are expected to attend. All of the programming, uniquely fit for digital, will be hosted online with live streaming and interactive sessions from 11am-5pm (EST).
BSPA seeks proposals by February 14, 2023 for short presentations highlighting issues relating to six key areas in which behavioral scientists could have significant influence on policy. Each area will be introduced by an invited keynote speaker, followed by a handful of compelling 8-minute presentations.Policy AreaPoverty & Financial WellbeingDiversity, Equity, & InclusionGlobal HealthEnvironment & SustainabilityOrganizational/ManagementJustice & EthicsEducation
Each short presentation session is designed to inform and influence academics, policy makers, and managers. Presentations may demonstrate recent key research findings (potentially from multiple papers) with meaningful implications for policy and practice and need not present new work-in-progress. These presentations should not be highly technical.
BPSA Conference Co-Chairs: Tom D'Aunno (NYU) and Mary Steffel (Northeastern)
