Full Submission Details

NCFR will once again host a late-breaking poster session during the 2023 NCFR Annual Conference. This session will be reserved for high-quality research findings that were unable to be submitted at the time of the general March 1st proposal submission deadline.

This year, late-breaking posters will expand beyond the Research and Theory Section to include 10 other NCFR member groups.

Family scholars from across all disciplines are invited to submit to the following groups:

  • Advancing Family Science Section
  • Families and Health Section
  • Family and Community Education Section
  • Family Policy Section
  • Family Therapy Section
  • Feminism and Family Science Section
  • International Section
  • Racial and Ethnic Diversity in Families Section
  • Religion, Spirituality, and Family Section
  • Research and Theory Section
  • Students and New Professionals (professional development proposals only)

Submissions must include the following:

  1. a title;
  2. 2-3 keywords;
  3. 1-2 objectives;
  4. a 300-word proposal that emphasizes impact on the field and rigor of approach;
  5. a 250-word statement of timeliness of the proposal (e.g., why the proposal was not submitted during the traditional NCFR submission period);
  6. author information (names, affiliations, email addresses);
  7. to which section or SNP submitting the proposal; and
  8. a sentence explaining how the proposal aligns with the section or SNP.

Submitters will also be asked to provide their name, credentials, employer, and contact information.

Proposals will be rigorously peer-reviewed by the Section executive team or SNP group to which you submitted, and a select number will be invited to present during the 2023 NCFR Annual Conference. Lead authors of proposals will be notified with selection decisions by Sept. 15, 2023.


Late-Breaking Poster Evaluation Rubric

All submitted late-breaking poster proposals will be reviewed on a scale of 1 (unacceptable) to 5 (highest quality) on two criteria:

  1. Rigorous Approach
  2. Impact on Field

We welcome submissions from all family scholars. The goal is to ensure the timely dissemination of cutting-edge family-based research. Please contact Cindy Winter ([email protected]) with questions.
