25-minute talks with at least one set of 10-minute comments, followed by Q&A. Talk format intended for advanced undergrads, grad students at any stage, post-grad early career researchers, and independent scholars looking for more experience with the APA session format. 

"coffee hour"  talks

10:30am - 11:30am PST

Hour-long, informal conversations about a paper in progress (or even just an idea in progress!) between the speaker and other participants. Talk format intended for grad students, post-grad early career researchers, adjunct faculty, and independent scholars looking for an opportunity to bounce ideas off some cool people. 

"colloquium" talk

1:00pm - 3:00pm PST

Hour-long lecture presentation, followed by an hour of Q&A. Talk format intended for late-stage grad student, post-grad early career researchers, adjunct faculty, and independent scholars looking for more experience with a longer-form/job talk format.
