Welcome to the online submission portal for the (RAD) Rethinking Adult Development Conference. 

Please select the poster format.

Welcome to the online submissions portal for the (RAD) Rethinking Adult Development Conference to be held in Worcester, MA  on May 17-19, 2018 at Clark University.

This is the portal to submit a poster only.

Individual Posters

Individual Posters will be presented during general poster sessions. The general poster sessions are unopposed sessions, and therefore offer an opportunity to present work to all conference participants who attend. Reports of empirical studies are well suited for poster presentations.

Submissions for poster presentations should include a proposal of no more than 500 words (approximately 2 double-spaced pages) containing the following: title, introduction to the research question(s), description of methods, results, brief discussion and/ or implications. In addition, proposals may contain up to two figures, tables, charts or graphs (reference list is not required). 

Submission Deadline: September 1, 2018

Notification of Decisions: September 14, 2018

Expedited Review: To accommodate international travel and special circumstances that may warrant an extended period between decision notification and the conference, we are offering expedited reviews to those whose circumstances qualify. Expedited review will only be granted in situations that would otherwise prohibit a presenter from traveling to the conference. You will be able to indicate this option when you submit your proposal. Proposals submitted for expedited review are due on August 1, 2018 and notifications will be granted within the next two weeks (August 14, 2018).
