CPA Program Chair's Choice papers


This year we are continuing the Program Chairs' Choice Paper submission format where individuals submit proposals for single paper presentations that fit themes. Individual papers are peer reviewed (with the same scoring format as symposium and posters) and the top scoring (4-6) submissions will be chosen for a slot in one of two program chair choice paper submissions.

The submission should include a 250-word abstract summarizing empirical research, methodological, or theoretical advances related to this year’s theme: Equity at Every Stage: Addressing addiction across the lifespan and bridging disparities. *Please note, preference will be given to papers that do not utilize convenience samples.

Papers can be submitted addressing one of three areas:

  1. Development and implementation of novel addiction treatments to reduce disparities and promote equity across the lifespan (any developmental period from early childhood through older adulthood)
  2. Exploring mechanisms of behavior change with a focus on equity and disparities across the lifespan (any developmental period from early childhood through older adulthood)
  3. Measurement, prediction, and identification of disparities across the lifespan  (any developmental period from early childhood through older adulthood)
