Submit your abstract! 

We welcome submissions for the Fourth International Housing First Conference: Knowledge Mobilization of Evidence-based Housing First Practices. The abstract submission link will be available soon.

Submissions must focus on the scattered-site Pathways Housing First approach and emphasize the link between research and practice. Submissions should focus on one or more of the following conference themes related to the Pathways Housing First model:

  • Fidelity and adaptation

  • Stakeholder partnerships

  • Networking opportunities

  • Advocacy related to policy change 

  • Educating the next generation of researchers.


We encourage group submissions that include researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and/or people with lived experience of homelessness. Individual submissions can be made for poster presentations. There will be a maximum of 42 concurrent presentation panels and workshops over the two days. The number of poster presentations is to be determined. 

Presentation formats

Presentation panels: These are 60-minute sessions that can include three to five presenters. Each panel will focus on one of the conference themes. Please allot 15 minutes for discussion and questions.

Workshops: These are also 60-minute sessions with three to five facilitators. Workshops are interactive and focus on skill-building in Housing First research or practice.

Poster presentations: Posters summarize issues related to Housing First research or practice. Posters can have multiple authors, but one lead author can attend the conference and make the presentation. Posters must be no larger than 94″ wide by 42″ tall.
