Abstract submissions are open yearly from November to March (exact dates change annually). Research abstract presentations are an opportunity to present current research findings to researchers and strength and conditioning professionals at the NSCA National Conference.

The research abstracts are the largest portion of the scientific programs presented every year at the National Conference. Previously presented abstracts (and electronic posters) are available below through our partner, eventScribe. Using eventScribe, you can "bookmark" your favorite poster, attach notes to a poster, and create a personalized summary of the posters that interest you.

Planning to submit and abstract? Please review the Abstract Submission and Presentation Guidelines.
