Description: 

How does this conference differ from other child abuse/family violence conferences?Every year, many excellent conferences on youth victimization and family violence take place around the country and the world. Our conferences differ because of their research focus. Our conferences offer a unique opportunity for researchers and scientist-practitioners from many disciplines to come together to share the latest cutting-edge data on the dynamics and consequences of violence and evidence-based prevention and intervention.We also hope that one feature that distinguishes our conferences is collegiality. In addition to the conference sessions, there are numerous opportunities to interact informally at receptions, breakfasts, and lunches where you can dine with Murray Straus, David Finkelhor, journal editors, and others. The number of attendees is small enough to give students and senior people alike a chance to mingle and meet others with similar interests. Many fruitful collaborations have arisen from our meetings. We hope to make the 2012 conference the most interactive of all!Can people who are not researchers attend? Are students welcome?Absolutely! At previous meetings, participants have included professionals and graduate students from psychology, sociology, psychiatry, social work, nursing, women's studies, law, criminology, criminal justice, anthropology, medicine, public health, and child development. We are especially interested in encouraging students to attend and present. For 2012, we are adding a data blitz option for poster presentations that is an especially good opportunity for students to get experience presenting in a brief format and promote their work.What is the conference format?This year we are adding two new formats, 20X20 presentations and a data blitz, to the three traditional types of submissions, papers, symposia, and posters. There is also our invited program of outstanding researchers giving longer addresses. 20 x 20 presentations are fast-paced slide presentations. The name comes from the standardized format: each presentation is 20 slides set on a 20-second automatic advance (totaling 6 minutes, 40 seconds). The 20-second advance favors slides that focus on a few (even one or two) words or images, not densely packed text. A data blitz gives each poster presenter 3 minutes and 3 slides to present their key findings. Traditional poster presentations will be accepted both with and without a data blitz component. Oral paper presentations are talks of approximately 20 minutes each. We will also accept proposals for symposia comprised of 3 or 4 papers focused on one theme.
