Presentation Format Options

Authors can submit abstracts for consideration as a short oral presentation, an extended oral presentation, learning lab/training session, or poster. Abstract authors are asked to indicate their preferred presentation format. However, the Annual Meeting Planning Committee reserves the right to make the final decision on the presentation format of accepted abstracts. Descriptions of presentation format options are listed below:

  1. Short Oral Presentation
    A brief oral presentation (10-15 minutes) made by the abstract author or designee. Three to four short oral presentations will be selected to fill a panel session organized around a specific topic or theme. (Total session time: 1.25 hours)

  2. Extended Oral Presentation
    A session presentation featuring one (1) abstract that is designed to provide attendees with an in-depth discussion and/or interactive experience related to a specific topic or theme. The session may be conducted and facilitated by one presenter or a group of presenters. (Total session time: 1.25 hours)

  3. Learning Lab/Training Session
    An extended session featuring one (1) abstract designed to provide attendees with a structured and detailed training experience to enhance specific skills related to the Core Competencies for Injury & Violence Prevention. (Total session time: 2.5 hours)

  4. Poster
    Visual presentations of innovative, current findings related to a specific topic, program, research findings, and/or intervention. Presenters can illustrate their findings by displaying graphs, photographs, diagrams, and limited text on poster boards. (Posters will be initially presented during a Poster Showcase and will be available for view during the duration of the Annual Meeting.)
