NASSPD this year will be a one day online event on Saturday, April 9, 2022. We are planning an exciting day of vibrant discussion and debate on hot topics in the field. 

In lieu of a traditional poster session this year, we invite you to submit an abstract to share your recent/current research developments with the NASSPD community. Abstracts selected by peer review will be distributed to all conference attendees in PDF format. During a virtual cocktail hour on the meeting day, there will be breakout groups to facilitate conversations among researchers with similar topics to facilitate discussion and networking. You will not make a poster (print or electronic) at all: abstracts will be published in the conference book and will facilitate researchers connecting for scientific discussion.

Proposal Deadline

The submission deadline for the NASSPD 2022 Conference was February 15th, 2022 at 11:59pm EST (Eastern Time)
