Welcome to AOPUTC 48!
It is a pleasure to welcome you to Ryerson University for the 48th Annual Ontario Psychology Undergraduate Thesis Conference (AOPUTC). This year, Ryerson's Department of Psychology is hosting the event on Friday, May 4, 2018.
We look forward to welcoming you! Every year, this conference provides an excellent opportunity for undergraduate psychology students to present their research in an informal and friendly atmosphere. Come learn, share and discuss new concepts as well as celebrate the completion of your thesis with your peers, colleagues, and friends from Psychology Departments all over the province.
Registration is closed. Guests of presenters are welcome to register, and only presenters and thesis supervisors will receive a conference package. You can choose to present your thesis findings in the format of a 10-minute oral presentation, or during a 60-minute poster session. Both formats provide valuable experience and are equally enjoyable. The Call for Abstracts is now closed.
AOPUTC 48 will offer an abundance of education, learning, and networking opportunities!

Your day will be filled with concurrent symposia sessions grouped by topic, so you can choose the presentations that interest you most. There will also be poster sessions, during which you can discover what your fellow students have been researching. A boxed lunch will be provided around noon. The day will close with a reception.
Poster sessions will last 60 minutes; Stand close to your poster during the session to answer questions and discuss your research with the circulating crowd.
