The PASS-SIG participates in ABCT's SIG Exposition (poster session) and will do so again in 2019.  The SIG expo session is Friday evening, from 6:30-8:30.  Students in the SIG poster sessions will be eligible for consideration for the SIG's Outstanding Student Research Award, which includes a $100 cash prize.  A panel of judges will determine the winner of the award, announce the winner, and award the prize all at the SIG poster session.  Student entrants must be enrolled in a university training program in the 2019-2020 school year to be eligible. 


Recap of ABCT 2018 SIG Poster Session:

Please note that the ABCT rules for SIG posters are different from the rules for regular poster sessions.  Posters must be no larger than 18 inches wide by 19 inches tall and work best when mounted on foam core or other lightweight, inflexible backing.  ABCT will provide small easels with self-adhesive strips, although you may also bring your own easel if you wish.  Presenters may use handouts to communicate essential information or share contact information for follow-up correspondence.  There will not be electrical outlets available.  

Posters should all be formatted using the following template: The Title of a Poster Should Be in Upper and Lower Case, using lower case only for conjunctions, prepositions, and articles. Please include authors in their proper order, followed by their affiliation [please, no departments or centers or other secondary listings]. When multiple authors are at the same institution, you may group them under a single affiliation.
