Abstract Submission Open Now

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 June 22 to 24, 2020 at Milan, Italy.

The Call for Abstract will close on January 11, 2020.

Please view all instructions and guidelines to submit your abstract at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cypsy25

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.


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.
