Annual Conference

A gem of a regional conference — Hank Schlinger, PhD, BCBA-D

April 3–4, 2020 in Colorado Springs, CO

We are excited to come to Colorado Springs for our 13th Annual Conference!

Between sessions, you'll face difficult decisions. Skiing by day or by night? At which of a half-dozen resorts within a couple hours' drive? In town, Garden of the Gods is otherworldly. Whether hiker, climber, or roadside tourist, this National Natural Landmark is a must-see for all visitors. From anywhere in town, you can orient yourself with Pikes Peak, one of the highest mountains in the continuous United States at 14,110 feet. Care to take in from above the view that inspired America, the Beautiful? The hike requires serious preparation, but on a moment's notice, try the first 2000 feet via the brutal Manitou Incline. Or drive straight to the top—there are only a few higher paved roads in the world! Connecting Garden of the Gods to Pikes Peak is Manitou Springs, a lively nook, be your objective sightseeing, shopping, or sampling one of the dozens of local breweries. Require an indoors respite? Tour the Air Force Academy. Or catch athletes preparing for Tokyo 2020 at the US Olympic Training Center. But we digress...

Join us for a single-track conference that is uniquely currated to balance basic, translational, and applied research. Our conference is for behavior analysts, therapists, managers, and families who are interested in remaining current with both practice trends and the latest developments in the basic science of behavior. BACB CEUs are included for full members.

And be sure to stay with us Saturday afternoon for Dr. Jim Partington's post-conference workshop on The Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS)!

Call for Posters

The deadline has passed. Contact us with any poster-related inquires.

Four Corners ABA invites posters that summarize empirical findings in behavior analytic research. The poster session will take place on Friday, April 3. A cash bar and hors d'oeuvres will be available. Student submissions will be considered in the poster competition. Abstracts are due Friday, March 13.


Your poster is similar to a condensed version of an APA report. It should include the same sections, but in an abbreviated format.

  • You will be provided a tabletop for your poster. Your poster should be free standing (using a tri-fold may be helpful here) or you may bring your own easel.
  • Your poster should be about 4' x 6' in size.
  • The poster session area will not provide projection equipment, electrical outlets, etc.
  • Posters must only report findings of the research. No advertising or product identification by brand name is allowed.
  • At least one of the authors must be by the poster to answer attendees' questions during the poster session.


The text of your poster should be visible from at least 1 meter away. As aresult, you should use a large font for your primary text (20 point or larger) and an even larger font for your headings.

  • Avoid fonts that are script or difficult to read.
  • Use graphs, and/or tables (preferably color) to show results.
  • A neutral poster is more amenable to the eye than a brightly colored background. A splash of color here and there, perhaps highlighting central finding(s) or provocative results, will make your poster “stand out” from the crowd.
  • Although handouts are not required, it is recommended that you come prepared with a brief handout that summarizes your presentation that can be given to other attendees (20 copies are recommended).
