2019 Call for Student Poster Presentations & Poster Contest
The Research Committee of the American Society of Trial Consultants (ASTC) is sponsoring a Student Poster Competition at the 38th Annual ASTC Annual Conference June 6 – June 8, 2019, at the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis. After blind review by the Research Committee, competitive posters will be accepted for presentation and entered into the poster competition.
The poster topic need not be related directly to trial consulting or, for that matter, jury behavior, per se. Although papers on topics such as venue surveys, witness preparation, jury selection, and attorney presentations (e.g., openings and closings) are welcome, we also invite work on cognate topics – e.g., persuasion in small groups, visual communication, implicit bias, hindsight bias, counterfactual reasoning – with potential application to better understanding of individual and group decision-making in trial settings.

All posters will be entered into the ASTC Student Poster Contest, with possible awards including free ASTC membership, waived convention fees, and varying cash prizes. Award winners are announced at the ASTC convention and could be featured on the ASTC website or in ASTC publications.
