Regsitration now open!!


Deadline for poster submissions is Friday, January 24, 2020 -- Posters will be reviewed as they are received, decisions will be communicated within two weeks.


Conference attendees are invited to submit an application to present a poster featuring their research or programs. Posters may highlight adoption research that has not been presented previously, or they may be about innovative programs or projects that would have interest to the audience. All poster submissions will be blind reviewed by a subcommittee of our Advisory Board. Committee members will be asked to nominate one poster for our Outstanding Poster Award, based on excellence in quality of the research and contribution to advancing our understanding of adoption. Submissions will be evaluated by a panel, who will consider the following:

  • Content relating to adoption and/or foster care

  • Clarity and merit of the abstract

  • Relevance for the target audience of adoption-related practitioners and researchers

Posters will be displayed throughout the day, with time for discussion between the presenter and audience at the beginning of the day, during lunch, and at the end of the day.
