Pontchartrain Convention & Civic Center

Registration for our 2020 Convention is OPEN! We are also currently accepting Call for Papers, Exhibitors/Sponsorships, and Student Poster Submissions. The deadline for submissions is March 15th, and we will inform all speakers and presenters of their acceptance by April 1st.

Also, this year we are offering submissions of undergraduate and graduate student research and are awarding 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes to the top posters. If your program/class has a research project that would qualify for a poster submission, or graduate students with interesting clinical cases for a potential case study, we'd love to see that research submitted for consideration. We will consider a wide variety of project submissions. This will give students an authentic, ideal setting to acquire experience with presenting professionally.  We are also going to conduct a student Quiz Bowl this year!
