2020 Call for Posters


Are you preparing to submit your abstract for CSM 2021?

Are you interested in sharing your research with your colleagues?

Here is the perfect opportunity! At the 2020 Combined Conference, posters will be displayed by therapists from both Indiana and Kentucky on research, special interest, case study, or theory reports. This opportunity is open to all PTs and PTAs with eligible presentations.

This is an excellent opportunity to share the findings of your studies with others and gain practice presenting a poster.

The Research Forum will be held from 5:00 – 7:00 pm on Friday, September 25, 2020 at the University of Indianapolis in Indianapolis, IN. Those registered for the Conference and current APTA members will have no additional cost to display their poster. For non-members, or those who do not wish to register for the Conference, will be assessed a $25 charge for admittance to the Research Forum, which also gives you admittance to the Friday Night Reception and Exhibit Hall.

The posters must be assembled by 4:30 pm on Friday, September 25, 2020. They will be open for viewing from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. Final details will be provided to those accepted prior to the Combined Conference.
