It is our pleasure to invite you to join us at the 25th Annual CyberPsychology, CyberTherapy, Robotics & Social Networking Conference – CYPSY25 – that will take place on September 13 to 15, 2021.

The Call for Abstract will close on May 16th, 2021

Important for 2020 abstract submitters: The title of your submission and its contents have to be different by the ones submitted in 2020. However, the new extended abstract can extend the work presented in 2020 (i.e., wider sample, new statistical analyses, new conclusions on already collected data).

Abstracts from the 2020 edition may be accessed online at:


IMPORTANT: There is a limit of two submissions for Oral presentations and speakers presenting as part of a Symposium. However, there is no limit on other forms of participation such as discussant, symposium chair, co-author, workshop presenter and posters.

When you are ready, please submit your abstract at:


You can submit an abstract to one of the following three types of communications:
*   Oral
*   Poster
*   Symposium

The difference between an oral presentation and a symposium is that independent oral presentations will be regrouped together by the Organizing Committee according to keywords provided by the authors, while a symposium consists of a group of four or five oral presentations selected and organised by one symposium chair. If you are contributing as part of a symposium, please choose this option on the submission form and separately advise your symposium chair of the title of your presentation.

Submission of Abstracts

If you would like to present a poster or an oral presentation at CYPSY25, please submit an abstract for the Scientific Committee to review based on the guidelines below. If you are a symposium chair, please email the list of presentation titles and contributors comprising your symposium, along with the symposium title, to claudia.repetto@unicatt.it and ensure that all contributors submit their abstracts via the submission system indicating them as symposium presentations.

Review Procedure

Each submission is peer-reviewed and will be selected based on scientific merit. Abstracts should clearly outline results from scientific studies. All presentations must contain original and scientifically valid information. Reports on completed research are clearly favored over descriptions of planned research. Commercial promotion and funding requests are not appropriate. The Scientific Committee will blindly review all abstracts and may invite the author(s) to make a poster presentation at the conference even if they have requested an oral presentation. The oral/poster/reject decision is at the discretion of the Scientific Committee.

Abstract Preparation

  • Presenters are required to submit an extended abstract made of two parts: a short summary (250 words) and a main text (limited to 600 words) with references if needed (Max 5, not included in the 600 words).
  • Please use these files to prepare your abstract (RAR folder). Abstracts that do not meet the required criteria will be sent back to the author to be re-formatted.
  • Required structure: Title, Author/s, Affiliation/s, Short Summary (A 250-word abstract), Keywords, Introduction/Problem, Method/Tools, Results, Conclusion. You must adhere to the document format requirements of IOS Press.
  • Novelty/Discussion: Please cover what makes this research different from prior work by you or by others. Please focus on the most unique aspect of your research, instead of broad implications.
  • References: Optional but appreciated (Max 5). Please use ONLY the standard bibliographic format (download the file above).
  • File formats: Acceptable formats are all the Word formats (.doc or .docx). No LaTeX, please.
  • The conference is in English and all abstracts will need to be in English. Please check spelling and grammar, as your abstract will be printed in the conference syllabus.
  • If English is not your native language, please have your paper proofread by a native speaker, preferably one who is familiar with the described technology.

Presenter Requirements:

*   Presenters must register for the conference.
