Registration fees include: admission to the full conference and social/networking sessions. The Mentoring Lunch is also free of charge, and is limited to 75 mentees and 25 mentors, to allow for the best interaction and exchanges. We apologize if we are unable to accommodate you this year.


ISPP MENTORING LUNCHEON

WE ARE STILL PLANNING TO HOLD THE MENTORING LUNCHEON AS PART OF OUR VIRTUAL 2021 MEETING.  More details will be made available to those registered for this event closer to the meeting dates.

The Mentoring Luncheon is organized annually to facilitate one-on-one meetings between early career scholars and leading academics and researchers in their field. One of the main goals of this event is to facilitate long-term connections, for career development and research advice beyond the individual’s supervisors’ at her or his respective institution. This event has attracted increasing numbers of participants over the years, as emerging scholars recognize the value of engaging with leading researchers in a relaxing and informal (virtual) atmosphere. The leading scholars provide their time on a voluntary basis, which is highly appreciated by the early career scholars. Opportunities to volunteer as a mentor or to sign up as an early career scholar are usually announced in the early part of each year. Announcements are made on the website, and invitations are sent out via email to ISPP members. If you or someone you know might be interested in volunteering as a mentor or attending as a “mentee”, please do get in touch via email.

IMPORTANT: Please note that due to limitations, this event can accommodate only 75 mentees and 25 mentors (100 total persons). Registering for the lunch when you register for the conference does NOT guarantee your participation in the Mentoring Luncheon. You will need to receive confirmation of your registration for this event from the luncheon organizers.

WE ARE TAKING OUR 2021 ISPP ACADEMY VIRTUAL, AS WELL.  More details will be sent directly to applicants and instructors.
