Call for Posters

The deadline has passed. Contact us with any poster-related inquires.

Four Corners ABA invites posters that summarize empirical findings in behavior analytic research. The poster session for 2017 will take place on Friday, March 31. A cash bar and hors d'oeuvres will be available. Submissions at this time will be considered for next year's conference.


Your poster is similar to a condensed version of an APA report. It should include the same sections, but in an abbreviated format.

  • You will be provided a tabletop for your poster. Your poster should be free standing (using a tri-fold may be helpful here) or you may bring your own easel.
  • Your poster should be about 4' x 6' in size.
  • The poster session area will not provide projection equipment, electrical outlets, etc.
  • Posters must only report findings of the research. No advertising or product identification by brand name is allowed.
  • At least one of the authors must be by the poster to answer attendees' questions during the poster session.


The text of your poster should be visible from at least 1 meter away. As aresult, you should use a large font for your primary text (20 point or larger) and an even larger font for your headings.

  • Avoid fonts that are script or difficult to read.
  • Use graphs, and/or tables (preferably color) to show results.
  • A neutral poster is more amenable to the eye than a brightly colored background. A splash of color here and there, perhaps highlighting central finding(s) or provocative results, will make your poster “stand out” from the crowd.
  • Although handouts are not required, it is recommended that you come prepared with a brief handout that summarizes your presentation that can be given to other attendees (20 copies are recommended).
