It’s an exciting time of the year! We are starting to think about the early Summer newsletter! The newsletter is a great venue for you to share information with section members and to receive collective congratulations for your yearly accomplishments! Please think about sharing information about the following things with your fellow section members.
Calls for papers
Calls for awards
Information about your new published book
We are also looking to feature an extended section written by a section member that focuses on new theoretical/methodological/logistical techniques. We have previously showcased SPQ Snaps and Mechanical Turk. If you would like to contribute in this way, please let us know!
Feel free to send along any other information that we can consider for inclusion as well.
Please send these things to Jennifer McLeer (firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 16th, 2016.
We have extended the deadline for submissions to the Annual Group Processes Conference, which is to be held on August 19th in Seattle, WA. The new deadline is May 15th.
Submit abstracts to Dave Melamed (email@example.com). Upon submission, we will confirm receiving your abstract. Presenters will be notified ASAP.
The website for the conference is here: http://gpc2016.weebly.com/. We still do not have a venue secured as ASA has yet to determine space allocations at the conference hotel. As information becomes available, we will update the website.

Applications are being accepted now for the 22th Annual Summer Institute in Political Psychology, to be held at Stanford University August 1-19, 2016.
The Summer Institute offers 3 weeks of intensive training in political psychology. Political psychology is an exciting and thriving field that explores the origins of political behavior and the causes of political events, with a special focus on the psychological mechanisms at work.
Research findings in political psychology advance basic theories of politics and are an important basis for political decision-making in practice.
SIPP was founded in 1991 at Ohio State University, and Stanford has hosted SIPP since 2005, with support from Stanford University and from the National Science Foundation. Hundreds of participants have attended SIPP during these years.
The 2016 SIPP curriculum is designed to (1) provide broad exposure to theories, empirical findings, and research traditions; (2) illustrate successful cross-disciplinary research and integration; (3) enhance methodological pluralism; and (4) strengthen networks among scholars from around the world.
SIPP activities will include lectures by world class faculty, discussion groups, research/interest group meetings, group projects, and an array of social activities.
Some of the topics covered in past SIPP programs include public attitudes and attitude change, race relations, conflict and dispute resolution, voting and elections, international conflict, decision-making, moral disengagement and violence, social networks, activism and social protest, political socialization, justice, and many more.
In 2016, SIPP will accept up to 60 participants, including graduate students, faculty, professionals, and advanced undergraduates. http://www.stanford.edu/group/sipp. Applicants are accepted on a rolling basis until all slots are filled, so applying soon maximizes chances of acceptance.
