Call for Submissions
Submission deadline: August 1, 2013
The theme of the NCRE 2013 conference is "Community Level Interventions and Outcomes for Native Youth."
Priority will be given to presentations of research that:
- Focus on community level intervention and/or assessment of community-level outcomes
- Include a focus on the etiology, prevention, or treatment of substance use problems directly, or on early risk factors in development that are associated with later substance use problems
- Examine risk and prevention/intervention at the individual, family, and/or community level
- Demonstrate effective collaboration between tribal and university partners
- Showcase student research
However,we also encourage other presentations relevant to the broader context and
course of child development in Native communities.
NCRE is made up of scholars from diverse disciplines. One of NCRE’s primary goals is to provide a forum for greater dissemination of research across disciplinary lines.Thus, the submission of material that may have recently been presented elsewhere is welcome here to foster broader dissemination.
Paper presentations will occur in breakout sessions with 1 presentation per session, to facilitate discussion among presenters and participants.Each presenter will have 75 minutes for an oral presentation of research, followed by discussion
with the audience.
Posters provide an ideal format for material that can be explained briefly and
is suited for graphic or visual presentation. Poster presentations also provide opportunities for higher levels of interaction and discussion, and thus student posters are particularly encouraged. Accepted posters will be grouped thematically into poster symposia sessions of 3-4 posters; each symposia will last 1 hour, with the first 30 minutes allowing time for the audience to visit each poster and interact with authors and the last 30 minutes dedicated to a group discussion regarding all the posters in the session.
