LSWO Conference 2016 Poster Session Submission
MSW and PhD students from accredited schools of social work are invited to submit poster sessions to present at the Latino Social Works Organization (LSWO) and the Center for Latino Adolescent and Family Health at New York Silver School of Social Work 2016 Social Work Conference to be held on April 25-27 at New York University. Deadline to submit a poster session is January 25, 2016.

A poster session is a presentation of information on a series of posters that may include drawings, photographs, charts, graphs, and textual data relating to a specific subject.

All poster sessions should connect with social work practice within the Latino community.

Students are highly encouraged to seek out a faculty member at their School of Social Work to consult with, prior to submitting their proposal online. If applicants do not have someone to consult with, they may contact Adrian Delgado, LCSW at the LSWO, at 312-925-6959.

Guidelines for Approved Student Poster Sessions
1. Each poster session author(s) will be provided with poster board upon arrival to the Conference Site. Authors are responsible for mounting their own material at least one hour prior to the opening of the session, and for removing it at the end of the day. Posters left up past that time will be discarded.

2. All illustrations, charts, etc., to be posted, should be prepared in advance as materials for these purposes will not be available at the conference site.

3. Lettering on illustrations should be large, legible, and can be readable. Photographs should be a minimum of 5 x 7 inches. Material should be displayed in logical sequence (introduction, development, and conclusion).

4. The effectiveness of a poster presentation will be enhanced by using techniques such as mounting the sheets on colored construction paper, etc., to improve the graphic impact. Please note, however, that simplicity, ease of reading, etc., are more important than artistic flair. Illustrations should not be mounted on heavy stock as this could make them difficult to mount on poster boards.

5. Avoid overcrowding figures and cramming too many numbers into tables. Legends and titles should accompany all figures, tables, photographs, etc. in order to allow their immediate identification.

6. No commercial activities or any
advertising may be displayed on the posters. Non-compliance with this rule will result in the poster being removed.
