Help with posters

Abstracts must be up to 400 words (about 3,650 characters). Shorter abstracts with 300 words or less are preferable. Please also include the title with up to 150 characters (shorter titles with 60 characters or less are preferable), authors names (APA style), authors affiliations (institution and address, including city, state/province, and country). Be sure to check our template.

We encourage you to consider submitting replications of previous studies, scientific reviews, experiments with negative results, or original contributions with positive results. A brief description of preliminary results in the abstract is encouraged.

We are recommending the usage of the #betterposter template for this year's presentations. Soon we will make more materials available to help you prepare your poster presentation. You don't need to have a poster ready at the moment you submit an abstract.

Abstracts, posters, and supplementary materials must be in English. However, you can choose to present in English, Portuguese, or Spanish. You will also be able to select which languages among those three you are comfortable answering questions. However, presentations can also be in one of those three languages.

We will use Discord for our virtual poster sessions. We have a helpful video tutorial to help you set up push-to-talk on Discord. Also, read these instructions.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or comments.
