Call for Posters for the Student Poster Competition.
Proposals due March 15, 2021 by 11:55 pm PST
Students are encouraged to submit proposals for poster presentations. Poster presentations can describe the student’s original research or can provide a concise literature review of a forensic psychology topic. An undergraduate or graduate student must be the first author and presenter of the poster, although a faculty member should be a co-author or sponsor of the presentation. [Please send PDF with brief description to ACFP@fielding.edu]
Proposals for posters must be 350 to 500 words in length. All proposals should end with recommendations explaining how forensic psychologists and/or attorneys can apply the research (original research or a body of research literature).
Students are encouraged to seek feedback from professors or other mentors who are able to provide guidance regarding their proposal and presentation. Please be sure to provide enough relevant detail in the proposal so that reviewers can adequately judge the originality of the work, the soundness of the rationale and design, the quality of the analyses (if relevant), and the appropriateness of the conclusions and recommendations.
For proposals that are accepted, the completed poster presentation must be submitted in PDF format by March 15, 2021. Posters should incorporate illustrative materials such as tables, graphs, photographs, and large-print text. Posters will be posted to the Forensic Psychology Symposium web site for viewing by symposium attendees. For the Student Poster Competition, attendees with assess and rate the quality of the poster presentations. First, second, and third place winners will be determined and announced.
