2021 Posters

36th Annual TxABA Conference



About the 2021 Poster Session

Each year at the annual conference, students, faculty and practitioners showcase their research in a poster session. A student poster competition will be held during the poster session. Judges, made up of TxABA members and presenters, review each student entry and select two posters for Best Student Poster Award.

For the 2021 conference, TxABA will be partnering with BehaviorLive for the 2021 poster session. Poster presenters will present live via video and attendees will be able to ask questions via a live chat.

Posters at TxABA must be related to behavior analysis. Poster submissions unrelated to the discipline will not be accepted. Prospective presenters must have the following information ready:

  • Names and affiliations of all authors on the poster
    • Please indicate which author will be presenting the poster
    • If the presenting author is a student, please indicate whether that author would like to enter into the student poster competition
  • Poster title
  • Poster abstract

In order to submit a poster, please fill out this online form.

If you experience any difficulties with the above form, please email us at txaba@txaba.org.

Poster submissions must be received by January 31, 2020.

Student Poster Competition

A student poster competition will be held during the poster session. Entering this competition requires no additional submission material beyond a normal poster submission.

Each poster will be assigned several poster sessions judges who are in charge of interacting with the poster competitor and scoring the poster and its presentation. Judges, made up of TxABA members and presenters, review each student entry and select two posters for Best Student Poster Award.

These judges will use a scoring sheet similar to this one that was used for the 2019 poster session. Please note that the precise format of this scoring sheet is subject to change.

There are typically 2-3 winners of the poster competition each year. The winners of the competition are awarded $200.
