Utah Council on Family Relations Annual Conference

Brigham Young University, Harmon Conference Center

 Friday, April 4, 2014

Submission Deadline: Friday, March 29, 2014, 11:59 pm

Early submissions receive preferential treatment

We invite faculty, community members, graduate students, and undergraduate students to submit proposals for the upcoming conference of the Utah Council on Family Relations to be held April 4 in the Harmon Conference Center at Brigham Young University.  You may request your preferred format, either (1) research paper (give 15 minutes presentation to a group) or (2) poster symposium (prepare a poster which highlights your research).   Submissions not selected for the research paper category will be automatically submitted to the poster format.

The 2014 conference theme is "Transitions in Family Life." Some transitions include: developmental transitions, marriage, transition to parenthood, divorce, launching children, older children returning home, workplace transitions, retirement, and death. However, research papers and posters may deal with any topic related to family life.  Some of these topics include: family life education, marriage family therapy, families in social context, family systems, life span and development, relationship building, volunteering and service, family financial management, parenting, policy and the law, ethics, minority families, health, religion, international and cross-cultural issues, family theory, work and family, families and disabilities, etc.

The goal of our conference is to be inclusive. We hope to receive submissions from established scholars but also graduate and undergraduate students with little or no experience, and everyone in between.  The poster symposium will allow all participants to present their research, get experience presenting at scholarly conferences, and network with others.

To submit a proposal e-mail a 1-2 page Word document to jeff_hill at byu.edu<mailto:jeff_hill at byu.edu> and include:

1.      Title of research

2.      Preferred format (Paper or Poster)

3.      Author name(s)

4.      Contact person (name, affiliation, e-mail, phone)

5.      Description of research (limit of two pages)

May include abstract and very brief description of research questions, hypotheses (if applicable), methods, results, discussion, key references)  If research is not yet complete, describe what you plan to do.

6.      NOTE:  2 page proposal maximum (1 page is preferred).  The more precise and the shorter the better.  Early submissions will receive preferential treatment
