Researchers Meeting abstracts will be accepted using different guidelines. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for more information.


Research and Practice Highlights

Do you have something new that you want to share with members of the hazards and disaster community?

Research and Practice Highlights are all about shining a bright light on new projects, programs, initiatives, local/state/national policies, and noteworthy publications.

Highlights are brief descriptions of your work or current projects. They are not for presentation, but rather, they will be posted online and in the printed Workshop program. This outlet allows all participants the opportunity to share what they are doing and to maximize networking potential.

Submissions should be 250 words or less, and include a separate listing of title, author/co-authors, and affiliations.

You will receive email confirmation that your submission was received.

Poster Session

Are you interested in preparing a professional poster detailing your recent research, initiative, or project?

Poster Session participants will be assigned a 4x4-foot vertical space to display a professionally formatted and printed poster detailing recent work.

We have limited space for posters, and spots will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. At least one author must be available to present the poster at the poster sessions on Sunday and Monday evening of the Workshop. The posters will be on display for the duration of the event. Abstracts for accepted poster submissions will be published online and in the print Workshop program.
