Contact Stephanie Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org The Virginia Forum on Youth Tobacco Use: Translating Research into Practice Call for Posters A poster session will be held in conjunction with the reception on the evening of the first day of the conference (March 29, 2006 from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm). This is a perfect opportunity to present your research on the causes and prevention of youth tobacco use, including preliminary findings of research in progress or conceptual models that may be tested through future research. Appropriate topics for poster presentations are research covering the broad spectrum of methods and approaches related to increasing our understanding and improving the prevention of youth tobacco use. Thus, poster presentations may include basic research including the biological and behavioral mechanisms associated with tobacco use and nicotine dependence; measurement research, including the development of new instruments to assess the processes and outcomes of preventive interventions; clinical research, including the translation of basic research into new interventions and testing the efficacy of interventions with new populations; epidemiological research, including genetic epidemiology and studies to determine the incidence and prevalence of youth tobacco use and addiction in Virginia and among specific subpopulations; and services research, including the financing and organization of services, effectiveness studies, and the studies of effective methods for disseminating science-based interventions. Due to space limitations, a maximum of 15 posters will be accepted for presentation at the conference. While submissions will be reviewed for appropriateness (i.e., they must address a topic related to the etiology and/or prevention of youth tobacco use as described above), all submissions will be accepted if received by the submission due date of February 22, 2006. However, in the event that more than 15 appropriate submissions are received by February 22nd, only the first 15 submissions will be accepted. To submit a proposal for a poster presentation, send a brief description of the poster presentation along with a listing of authors and their institutional affiliation to Stephanie Hart at email@example.com. The subject line of the e-mail should be the name of the first author followed by the words “VYTP Poster Presentation.” You will be notified of the acceptance of your poster presentation no later than March 1, 2006. At that time you will be given guidelines for the preparation of the poster and an abstract to be included in the conference agenda. If you have any questions about the poster session, please contact Stephanie Hart at (804) 828-8635 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
