The 2024 USCHA planning committee has issued the Call for Abstracts to solicit proposals from people working in the field of HIV/AIDS interested in convening a workshop or a poster presentation at USCHA. This year, we encourage submissions by and related to the issues of Black women.
When preparing submissions, please follow all guidelines outlined in this site and submit required materials on or before April 29, 2024, by 5:00 p.m. PT. The committee will notify those accepted as presenters well in advance of the conference dates and send them information concerning all applicable registration and presentation confirmation details.
Decisions will be sent to all applicants on June 1, 2024. Please check your spam and junk folders to ensure you get the Abstract notification email. NMAC emails are often blocked from main inboxes.
If selected, USCHA only provides one (1) complimentary registration for the accepted abstract. Presenters will need to secure their own travel and accommodations. All co-presenters are expected to register for the conference as well. It is suggested you plan ahead so that your co-presenters can take advantage of early bird registration.
Your abstract is scored on the following:
The maximum score is 20. To ensure you get as many points as possible, please visit the Submission tips and the sample of a well written Abstract.
Workshop presentations are 2 hours in length. Authors should be prepared to occupy the entire 2-hour period. USCHA does not group submissions into one workshop.
All meeting rooms will have projectors, screens, microphones & laptops. Please come prepared with our presentation on a flash drive. We recommend limiting panel presentations to no more than 4 speakers total. Please plan your workshop around the limitation of the presentation room.
Poster materials will be displayed on a 4′ x 8′ poster board supplied by USCHA. Since a poster format is best when your material can easily be communicated visually, text should be limited to brief statements.
