- Displaying a poster at NAVIGATOR grants permission for your abstract and poster to be published in the Annals of Emergency Dispatch & Response (AEDR).
- It is the author(s) responsibility to bring their poster to NAVIGATOR 2019. If an author(s) will not be attending, arrangements can be made.
- If the author(s) will attend NAVIGATOR, they will be invited to present their poster during a session.
From the accepted abstracts and subsequent received posters, IAED’s Research & Informatics Division will select a winning research poster. The winning poster will be announced during the conference’s closing lunch and noted as the winning poster when published in the Annals of Emergency Dispatch & Response (AEDR), the Academy’s peer-reviewed research journal.
Author(s) of the winning poster will also have the opportunity to expand the study into a full original research manuscript (if not yet published in other peer-reviewed journal) for publication consideration in the AEDR.
IAED Research & Informatics Division’s mentorship will be available, if needed.
