Suicide Research Symposium

April 26-28, 2023

We are delighted to announce that the second annual Suicide Research Symposium will be taking place April 26-28, 2023. This Symposium will be free and take place virtually.

We envision this being a place where you have the opportunity to:

  • Present recent research findings

  • Stay informed on developments in suicide research

  • Advance inclusive and equitable practices in suicide research and prevention

  • Network, connect, and build a diverse community with other suicide researchers

Join us for this groundbreaking event!


We are excited to present our 2023 Call for Proposals.

Submissions will be accepted for individual paper presentations, poster presentations, symposia/workshops, and data blitz/flash talks. We especially encourage submissions from early career researchers (undergraduate/graduate students, research assistants, postdoctoral fellows) and from those of historically excluded and minoritized populations. This event will be an excellent opportunity to showcase your research and connect with other researchers in the field!


Submission instructions are included in the section below. Be sure to indicate whether you would like to submit a paper, poster, symposium, or data blitz/flash task. Proposals will be reviewed by experts in our field and will be based on the following criteria:

1. Quality of ideas and theoretical background/grounding

2. Quality and openness/transparency of methods, approach, and analysis

3. Quality of interpretations and conclusions

4. Fit with priority areas:

a. Diversity and representation

b. Innovation and originality

c. Scientific interdisciplinarity and collaboration

The deadline for submissions is November 4, 2022, at 11:59 PM PDT. No late submissions will be accepted. Please review all submission requirements carefully, as all proposals must follow guidelines and be submitted online to receive full consideration.


Important: Please note that submitters are limited to two first-authored oral presentations (paper, data blitz, or symposia/workshops). This limit does not apply to poster presentations, nor does it apply to serving as a discussant for a symposium or co-authoring a presentation. If you have more than two projects that you would like to share at SRS23, please consider having a student/mentee or colleague submit and present this additional research.
