All Day Event


The 2018 APPAM/Maxwell School Public Policy Camp is designed for promising undergraduate (sophomore – senior) students of color who want to make a difference in their communities. We invite you to be our guests for a one day Public Policy Camp. Having diverse perspectives at the policy table leads to better, more effective and inclusive, public policy. We must work collectively to address this problem.

“We strongly believe that more college students need to be exposed to the field of public policy, so they can understand how evidence-based, innovative policies can address some of the biggest challenges facing societies around the world today," said UCR SPP Dean Anil Deolalikar. "This is why we are so eager to host APPAM’s Public Policy Camp here at UC Riverside’s School of Public Policy."

Fall Research Conference Innovation Lounge submission deadline
Event's details
September 28, 2018

All Day Event


One of the most valuable aspects of the annual Fall Research Conferences are the impromptu conversations attendees about a project they’re working on or an idea that they would like some feedback on. It is in the spirit of these important connections that we are introducing the Innovation Lounge. The aim of these sessions is to have a broad discussion on an emerging or not yet fully formed idea or concept in the research field. We invite you to submit a brief proposal.

2018 Theme: Public Policy for Sustainable Metropolitan Development

The 2018 APPAM International Conference in Mexico City, Mexico, will be held on July 19 – 20, 2018. Join us at the campus of the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM). The LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin and the Instituto Tecnólogico Autónomo de México (ITAM) are jointly organizing the 2018 conference. 

This conference will host nearly 60 sessions and three plenaries built around the seven primary policy areas. Attendees will also enjoy two receptions and generous lunch schedules for optimal networking opportunities. Join researchers from around the world as they share unique perspectives on sustainability and development.

These guidelines apply to all poster presentations for the 2018 APPAM International Conference. If you have any questions, please contact Tara Sheehan, tsheehan@appam.org.

Confirmation

All presenters must register for the conference no later than May 18, 2018.  Any presenter not registered by this date is subject to removal from the program. Presenters can register here.

Poster Session Date/Time

  • Thursday, July 19, 6:30 - 8:00 pm
  • Location: Buidling 5, Libreria Foyer (Bookstore Foyer) (ITAM)

Placing and Removing Your Poster

All posters may be hung up to 30 minutes prior to the start of the poster session. You may also drop your poster off at the registration desk for staff to hang.

All poster boards will be numbered, indicating assigned poster spaces for each session. You will receive your specific assignment location prior to the conference. Only put your poster up in your assigned space. A staff person will be on hand to help you find your space in the exhibit hall. Thumbtacks will be provided for putting up your poster. Please do not use tape, staples or any other type of adhesive to hang your poster.

Your poster title will appear in the preliminary and final programs. The final program will indicate your location number. If your paper title has changed, you will have the opportunity to update the title through May 18.

Presenters are asked to be available at their posters during the entirety of their poster session to discuss their posters with interested viewers.

You will need to collect your poster by 6:30 pm on Friday. We will dispose of posters left behind.

Poster Size

Posters boards are 4 feet wide by 8 feet tall. Please note that the poster boards at this conference are vertical in orientation, rather than horizontal. Posters should be prepared as a single poster rather than multiple posters pieced together. Please do not cover the board numbers. This helps other poster presenters, as well as viewers, quickly identify space assignments.

Posters printed on foam core will be much harder to hang up, please consider this when choosing the materials and format for your poster.

Poster Appearance

  1. Keep text brief. Report only key aspects of each section (methods, results, discussion, and policy or management implications). It is not advisable to display the entire text from a manuscript. Too much detail detracts from the primary message of the text.
  2. Keep figures simple. Convey only one idea per figure, table, or photograph. Figures from publications, theses, or dissertations normally do not make good visuals.
  3. Text and figures should be readable to someone standing at a distance of six feet.
  4. Charts and graphs should clearly show what you want the audience to see.
  5. Use appropriate blank space between words, sections, and figures.
  6. Use appropriate and compatible colors for fonts, backgrounds, graphics, and matting. White backgrounds generally are best for text.
  7. Simple typefaces are preferable to fancy fonts. Bold type may be effective on headings.

Poster Presentation

Poster presenters are encouraged to have a 3-5 minute talk prepared about their work that they can share with session attendees. The talk should cover the research background as well as findings that can be easily undertsood by all attendees.  Here are a few examples of successful poster presentations:
