47th Annual ABCT Convention
Gaylord Nashville, Nashville TN
Friday, November 22, 2012
6:30 - 8:30 pm


The SIG Expo and Opening Cocktail Party will be held in the Presidential Ballroom at the Gaylord Opryland hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. The ballroom will be ready for poster presenters to display their posters on Friday, November 22, at 6:15 pm.


Each SIG chair will review submissions and accept a maximum of 12 posters. Each SIG has a submissions deadline.

Visit this page for a listing of chairs.


Each of the Posters has a maximum size of 18 inches wide by 19 inches tall. The easels that ABCT provides will not handle posters bigger than this and the tables will not accommodate larger sizes.


Presenters prepare handouts on essential information that doesn't fit on the poster or share an email address for follow-up correspondence.


ABCT will provide small easel backs with self-adhesive strips onto which you may mount your posters. You may bring your own easels if you prefer. For best results when mounting on ABCT-supplied easels, you should bring posters printed or mounted on Foam Core or other lightweight, inflexible backing. Posters on regular paper will tend to curl; posters on heavy cardboard will tend to fall over.


Posters should all be formatted using the following template: The Title of a Poster Should Be in Upper and Lower Case, using lower case only for conjunctions, prepositions, and articles. Please include authors in their proper order, followed by their affiliation [Please, no departments or centers or other secondary listings]. When multiple authors are at the same institution, you may group them under a single affiliation. Here are two examples of properly formatted posters:

Development of a Stepped-Care Cognitive-Behavioral Motivational Model for College Students with Alcohol Problems

Horacio Quiroga Anaya and Juan José Sánchez-Sosa, National Autonomous University of Mexico, Elena Medina-Mora, National Institute of Psychiatry, and Carlos F. Aparicio Naranjo, University of Guadalajara

Perceptions of Driving after Use of Alcohol and Marijuana in College Students

Sarah L. Pedersen, Andrea M. Lynch, and Denis M. McCarthy, University of Missouri-Columbia
