We particularly invite students to submit abstracts for consideration. Those submitting abstracts for consideration should make note of the following:

  • Submissions are due Friday, March 1, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
  • Poster space is limited; priority will be given to students.
  • Posters must focus on current issues and/or innovative methods that have an impact on the criminal or juvenile justice system in the United States and may involve social, behavioral, or forensic sciences; technology; and/or engineering. 
  • Given the conference theme of “Advancing Justice Through Science,” NIJ will prioritize submissions that describe research implications that promote safety, equity, and justice for all.
