Call for Abstracts: Research to Practice Symposium

The CPRS Research to Practice Symposium provides a forum to exchange and discuss new knowledge developed through research. The Research to Practice Symposium will be on Wednesday, February 28 and Thursday, February 29, 2024, within the expo hall (posters displayed both days and presentations on Th., 02/29/2024). We welcome and encourage submissions from student researchers (graduate and undergraduate), in addition to faculty and other researchers.

Abstract submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis now through December 31, 2023. The final deadline for all abstracts is 11:59 PM PDT on January 15, 2024.

 

If selected, researcher(s) will have 5 minutes to provide an oral presentation of their research. After all research has been presented, at least one researcher must remain with their poster to discuss their research for the remainder of the research session (about one hour).

 

There are two types of abstracts accepted, Professional Practice and Leisure Theory.
• The Professional Practice focus communicates research that emphasizes the application of findings to parks, recreation, and tourism professionals. Only empirical research projects will be considered. Professional Practice abstracts must contain the following elements: Introduction, Method, Results, and Conclusions.
• The Leisure Theory focus emphasizes research related to conceptualizations and theories of leisure behavior, consumption, and the overall social implications of leisure. Both empirical research projects and conceptual/theoretical papers are considered. Leisure Theory abstracts must include the following elements: Introduction, Theoretical Review, Methods (if appropriate), Results (if applicable), and Discussion emphasizing implication for parks and recreation.
