The Community Engagement (CE) Conference planning committee is seeking abstract and poster submissions that describe projects, research and/or lessons learned from the field of Community Engagement in Research (CEnR) that align with this year’s CE conference. 

Poster Session

Relevant submissions should meet the following criteria:

  • All must fit within at least one of the following topic areas:

o   community-academic partnerships for health

o   community-centered  information systems design

o   metrics and outcomes in CEnR

o   examples from the field in approaching translational research projects

  • Either have been developed in direct collaboration with communities (e.g. through a community-academic partnership) 
  • OR projects demonstrate a deep practical understanding of the needs and priorities of the communities


*In contrast to typical academic conferences, posters must convey information in ways that are directly accessible and understandable by members of the community at large*

Posters that are overly technical, jargon laden or designed solely for an academic audience will be rejected without review
