The 2020 Forum will be held on June 17 – 19, 2021! Poster Presentation provides attendees with the option to submit an abstract for presentation during our virtual poster session. Attendees selecting this option may submit more than one abstract for presentation. Attendees will have the opportunity to present their research using “flipped presentation” formats (i.e., pre-recorded short descriptions of their poster), and at the virtual session will have the opportunity to interact with other attendees to discuss their work. We will accept abstract submissions until 11:59 pm (EDT) on April 30, 2021. If your abstract is accepted for presentation we will prompt you via email to upload your presentation into our digital system, saving you both time and money!
Benefits of Presenting at the Forum Science Social
At the Forum Science Social, we render poster presentations in an all-digital environment, saving time and money. We leverage widely used online platforms to raise the visibility of this work. All presentations are:
Deadline for Submission and Notification
We will review abstract submissions submitted on or before 11:59pm on Friday, April 30th, 2021. Review decisions on abstracts will be communicated on a rolling basis between April 1st and May 10th of 2021.
Policy on Forum Registration
Anyone presenting at the Forum must register and pay the Forum’s fee for poster review and presentation rendering ($25). Those who pay the fee may submit as many abstracts as they wish. Registration is currently open.
Abstract Review Process
Abstracts must describe a complete representation of your work and cannot be a “work in progress” that has yet to yield discernible findings. We only accept abstracts that report findings from empirical work (e.g., experiments, controlled trials, archival database studies, psychometric studies, controlled observations, field studies, quantitative reviews). We welcome abstracts on all research relevant to mental health, including work across the lifespan (e.g., young children, adolescents, adults)!
Detailed Information on Presentation Format and Process
Presentations will all be in a digital poster format created using Microsoft PowerPoint© software. Poster sessions will occur during our Forum Science Social. If your abstract is accepted for presentation we will prompt you via email to upload your presentation into our system for visual production (i.e., you will not have to print your poster in paper form). Our guidelines for making poster presentations can be found here: http://bit.ly/JCCAPForumPoster.
Abstract Submission Survey
