ANPT Annual Conference Poster Submissions

The ANPT Annual Conference Program Committee is excited to launch a new approach to poster presentations through the use of #betterposter and traditional posters.

Poster sessions, which often attempt to communicate nearly 50 new findings in less than an hour, represent an opportunity for efficient, mass learning. However, most poster sessions fall far short of this goal, by crowding too much text on the poster.  The #betterposter layout incorporates empirically derived principles from the field of User Experience Design (UX) to better communicate scientific findings.  This layout maximizes the amount of information provided to attendees walking by, while minimizing interaction cost in accordance with best practices in UX design and theories explaining how people browse and consume information.  The key is ensuring that your poster is visually appealing and eye-catching, identifies evidence based critical takeaways, and translates findings in a creative meaningful way. 

To help guide those choosing to present using the #betterposter format we’ve even created our own ANPT Annual Conference template and suggest viewing the YouTube video link here for further insight.

All poster submissions will be reviewed by the Annual Conference Poster Review Committee. Authors will be notified of the status of their submission by June 15, 2021. All poster presenters will have the opportunity to submit a short pre-recorded overview of their poster which participants can access asynchronously in a virtual poster hall. Poster recordings must be submitted by August 2, 2021.  

Please consider being part of ANPT’s inaugural conference!
