Submit a Poster for NAFSA 2023
Deadline: December 7, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. (EST)
We do not accept proposals that are not submitted via the presenter portal.
The 2023 Annual Conference Committee invites you to submit a poster proposal for the NAFSA 2023 Annual Conference & Expo in Washington, D.C. Explore fourteen poster fair themes across all knowledge communities and connect to the annual conference theme. You may find that your topic fits within several themes. In these cases, we encourage you to submit your proposal to the theme that best reflects your intended audience. We invite practitioners, researchers, and graduate students from all types of institutions, as well as partners that support international education, to imagine, create, and design your posters.
The NAFSA poster fair at the annual conference is a learning experience and noncommercial. If you are interested in sharing a service, consider submitting a case study about it in partnership with an educational institution.
Poster Submission Guidelines
You will be asked to submit:
- Title, abstract, learning objectives, and poster theme (see below)
- All presenter biographical information (if you have a copresenter, they will be asked to log in, so prepare accordingly)
- Key content takeaways
For the International Education Research theme, please be prepared to submit your hypothesis, research methods, and thesis.
Please note that we do not expect posters to include a visual for their poster at this time.
Before you submit, draft a proposal in our session and workshop templates. These are great tools to get a headstart with your colleagues before you actually start your submission.
Note: we do not accept proposals that are not submitted in the proposal system before the December 7 deadline.
