DEADLINE: Sunday, March 3, 2013
This poster session offers an opportunity for college students at all levels to illustrate their ongoing research projects in a poster presentation format, and receive feedback from experienced scholars. Because the projects will be in various stages of completion, these presentations are for the purpose of professional development and have not undergone peer review; therefore should not be considered professional research presentations for vita purposes. Additionally, because abstracts have not been peer-reviewed and will be accepted past the publication deadline, abstract titles and author names will not be published in the convention program or RQES supplement.
This session will be held as part of the 2013 AAHPERD National Convention and Exposition on Friday, April 26th, from 10:45 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
How to Participate:
Although we anticipate being able to accommodate all interested students, participation is on a first come, first served basis. All students interested in participating must send the following to email@example.com: name, school, email address, project title, discipline area (see note below) and abstract up to 250 words describing the project's purpose/research question(s), background literature/theoretical framework as appropriate, method and timeline. After sending the abstract, submitters can expect to receive an email confirmation of receipt. If not received within two business days, call the Research Consortium office at: 703-476-3415. Participants will be sent information related to preparing their poster board along with a poster board number assignment prior to the convention, and must be registered attendees of the convention. (It is acceptable to send in the abstract prior to registering).
