Not sure which presentation format will work best for your proposed session content? If you have questions, contact APNA at pblack@apna.org.


 

Pre-conference Sessions


Pre-conference sessions are designed to offer an in-depth learning experience about select topics. “How to…” submissions are also encouraged. Format includes 2-hour sessions. The number of attendees is limited and requires additional payment. Pre-conference sessions with more than one faculty must indicate a primary presenter. APNA will provide a $200 discount on full conference registration for one presenting author. This is most commonly the primary presenter, whose contact information is entered first. This cannot be combined with any other discount. Each presenter must register for the conference by the Early Bird Deadline of August 26th.


 

Concurrent Sessions


Concurrent sessions are designed for a presentation needing review or discussion of material. Presentations follow a 45-minute format that includes 10 minutes of audience discussion. APNA will provide a $100 discount on full conference registration for one presenting author. This is most commonly the primary presenter, whose contact information is entered first. This cannot be combined with any other discount. Each presenter must register for the conference by the Early Bird Deadline of August 26th.

 

Mini Concurrent Sessions


“Mini” concurrent sessions are 20-minute presentations (plus time for audience discussion), grouped by topic/theme/category with another mini concurrent session, and presented within one 45-minute time period. APNA will provide a $100 discount on full conference registration for one presenting author of each presentation. This is most commonly the primary presenter, whose contact information is entered first. This cannot be combined with any other discount. Each presenter must register for the conference by the Early Bird Deadline of August 26th.

Collaborating presentations / presenters:  During the submission for a mini concurrent session, you will have the opportunity to enter the name of another submitting author with whom you would be interested in being grouped.

 

Poster Presentations


Poster presentations offer an opportunity for clinical and/or scientific presentations in an interactive environment. APNA will provide a $100 discount on full conference registration for one presenting author. This is most commonly the primary presenter, whose contact information is entered first. This cannot be combined with any other discount. As posters are available for viewing on multiple days, poster presenters must register for the full conference. Each presenter must register for the conference by the Early Bird Deadline of August 26th.

Accepted poster presentations will require the submission of program materials (poster pdf, permissions) by the Poster Program Materials Deadline of August 5, 2019.

Online Poster Gallery: Abstracts of poster presentations given at the conference will be published in the Online Poster Gallery for access during and after the conference unless otherwise indicated by the presenter. The inclusion of a poster pdf in the gallery is optional – it is not required for presentation at the conference, though highly recommended.

Poster Judging: First and second place recognition will be awarded to posters in the categories of administration, research, education, and practice. One student poster will also be recognized. Poster judges will access the poster pdfs prior to the conference for scoring purposes. Poster presenters are not required to participate in the judging process.

Medical education supported posters (one poster per presenter) may be accommodated based on space available. These posters must separate from the continuing education posters and will not appear in the Online Poster Gallery. Non-CE poster presenters will not receive the poster presenter discount.
