2021 Virtual Survival Kits


20 threw us a few curveballs and in an attempt to keep things interesting while we all worked from home, we sent out small boxes with a few flyers to everyone who registered.  The feedback we received was mixed.  While some people enjoyed the notepads and pen, others felt that it was a waste of resources.  With this in mind, the Virtual Survival Kit was born.  

The first official Virtual Survival Kit was offered to attendees of the 2021 COFABA Conference. For a small fee to cover the shipping and handling, attendees could opt to receive a survival kit that included snacks and other FABA items.

The Survival Kit for our 41st Annual Conference will be similar to the one offered at CoFABA, but it will have all new and unique items to give our virtual attendees a little bit of FABA fun to enjoy at home.




41st Annual FABA Conference

A Hybrid Event

September 29 - October 2, 2021


Download the 2021 Call for Papers pdf Guide here

WORKSHOPS are 3-hrs in length. Workshops are scheduled at the beginning or end of the annual conference on either Wednesday or Saturday (Saturday workshops run concurrently with selected sessions). Regardless of scheduled date, all workshops must be eligible for approval as a BCBA/BCaBA continuing education event. They should be designed to teach new skills that may be used by the participants. The format of the workshop MUST involve extensive audience participation, use of handouts, opportunities for participants to practice the skills, and/or the use of guided notes. Note that a workshop is not a sales or marketing event and any commercial advertising efforts are prohibited. Any extra fees must be justified. Not all workshops submitted may be selected for the annual conference-especially given the increasing number of submissions. Workshop presenters MUST register for the FABA conference.  Any author intending to present/ speak must be marked as a PRESENTING AUTHOR.

Submit a Workshop

PAPERS are oral presentations of a single paper given in 50 or 80-minute durations. Papers may not be accepted at the same duration in which they were submitted (e.g., a 50 minute paper may be requested by peer reviewers to be expanded into an 80 minute presentation). In the event that the description of the submission better meets the definition of another type of presentation (i.e., a panel), a paper session may be accepted in a different format (e.g., a paper may be accepted as a panel or poster).  Submitters agree to these terms when submitting paper presentations and will be notified of such decisions upon completion of peer reviews. Any author intending to speak must be marked as a PRESENTING AUTHOR.

Submit a Paper

PAPER SESSIONS Twenty-five minute paper presentations will be grouped together to form 50 or 80 minute paper sessions around similar topics a CHAIR will be assigned by the Program Committee reviewers to preside over the paper session (this is often one of the presenting authors). The chair will be assigned to introduce speakers, keep time, and act as a main communicator between the program committee and co-authors.  There is not a discussant for paper sessions or paper presentations.  Papers may not be accepted at the same duration in which they were submitted (e.g., a 50 minute paper may be accepted as a 25 minute paper).  Any author intending to speak must be marked as a PRESENTING AUTHOR.

Submit a Paper Session

SYMPOSIA consist of several speakers addressing a very similar topic. A SYMPOSIUM is organized by the Chair of the session who is typically not a presenter of one of the papers. This differs from a paper session in that it features a Discussant—a person who is prominent in the field and is not one of the presenters. Questions from the audience are addressed at the end of the Symposium and commented upon by the Discussant.

Submit a Symposium

PANEL DISCUSSIONS bring together several individuals with similar expertise in a subject matter to discuss topics of concern or interest among themselves and with audience members. The organizer of a PANEL either acts as the Chair or selects a Chairperson responsible for introducing topics and speakers. The PANEL would be an appropriate submission for meetings of affiliated chapters or special interest groups. Panels are scheduled for 50 or 80 minutes in duration but may be accepted at a different duration upon peer review.

Submit a Panel

POSTERS are visual presentations of primarily data-based information in an attractive, easily understood format. The advantage of a poster is that it provides face-to-face interaction with the author(s). Posters should fit a 4' x 4' area. A bulletin board for display and pushpins will be provided. POSTERS are combined thematically into POSTER SESSIONS, which remain in place for a minimum of 3-hrs. The presenters are asked to be present for the first hour to answer any questions or to more fully describe their work. Poster presentations offer a great opportunity to share their research, receive feedback on ideas, and network with others.  Annual Ribbon Awards are bestowed. Posters are not eligible for continuing education credits.


Submit a Poster

IGNITE is a fast-paced, fun, thought provoking, session where presenters share their professional passions about some aspect of behavior analysis in five minutes, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. The Ignite motto is: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” IGNITE presentations will be grouped into 50-minute sessions based on similar themes. To learn more about this exciting method of sharing your passion and see great examples of 5-minute presentations go to 

Ignites are not eligible for continuing education credits.

Submit an Ignite

MEETINGS and SPECIAL EVENTS are items that need space at the conference, but do not fit into one of the other categories. should submitted by the intended Meeting Chair—for the purpose of discussing a common mission or topic of interest.  This is intended for Special Interest Groups, Local Chapter, or other subcommittees of FABA.  Other examples include yoga sessions, Zumba sessions or meet & greet events.  Meetings & Events are not eligible for continuing education credits.  If you feel that your event should receive CEUs, you are encouraged to submit a panel or paper presentation instead.

 Submit a Meeting or Special Event



Here are some things to keep in mind when presenting at FABA:

Conference Registration

All presenters MUST register for the conference.   This includes poster presenters and those people who are only planning to present and do not intend to attend the conference.   Registration can be for either in-person or virtual.   Please keep this in mind when submitting your presentation.  

Audio/Visual Equipment

The session room will be set theater style with a lectern at the front of the room and an LCD projector. We will also provide a six-foot draped head table and 2 chairs. If you are showing slides, we request that you bring your own laptop with your slides pre-loaded. Those using Mac computers will need to provide their own cable adapters. There will be a table in the back for any handouts, brochures, etc. A limited amount of additional A/V equipment can be provided. Please note which equipment, if any, you require. Additional requests will be considered based on budgetary impact. Microphones and speakers will not come standard in smaller rooms and will only be available in those rooms seating over 200. If your presentation requires audio, please note this on your submission.

Head Shot

Please submit a high-resolution color digital head shot, at least 300 dpi, in JPG format. We cannot use PDFs nor can we use images pulled from a website for print purposes. Although they may appear fine on screen, the resolution is not high enough and will appear grainy in print. Please note that all head shots must be a photograph of the presenter, no illustrations or clip art will be accepted. If you are an author, also submit book jacket image(s).

Speaker Handouts (optional)

You may provide handouts to conference attendees if desired. These can include written copies or summaries of your presentation, as well as supplementary resource materials. We regret that we will not be able to cover any costs associated with duplication, shipping to or from the conference center, or handling of handouts or other speaker materials.
