Poster Submission Guidelines

Poster presentations are expected to provide presenters with an opportunity to create concise, visual displays of their research findings and/or outcomes. These presentations should be designed to contribute to open discussion at the conference, as well as advance research in the field. Poster presentations  must be deeply grounded in the literature and driven by either quantitative or qualitative research, as appropriate.Poster sizes are expected to be no larger than 3’ x 4’ and will be displayed on a standard-sized triboard. Presenters are expected to bring their posters already mounted on the tri-board.  Posters should be set up at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the session. Presenters should remain with their posters for the entire session (10:00am - 12:30pm).
