Call for Proposals

End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI) invites proposals for posters to be displayed at our international conference which promotes innovative techniques, unique approaches, and promising practices in responding to crimes of violence against women. The EVAWI conference takes a multidisciplinary approach to training, bringing together all of the professionals who respond to victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking.  

We are seeking proposals for posters that meet the conference objectives, which are to:

  • Increase collaboration among criminal justice and community professionals 
  • Support prosecution to hold perpetrators accountable 
  • Promote effective prevention and risk reduction programs


Posters will be available for viewing throughout the International Conference on Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, and Stalking, which will take place April 3 - 5, 2013, in Baltimore, MD. For more information on the conference and how to register, please see the event listing.

We specifically encourage poster submissions from students, first-time presenters, and researchers whose work is not yet complete.
