Call for Poster Abstracts

Individuals who wish to present their work on any aspect of climate information for managing risks to agriculture and natural resources are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration as a poster presentation. Poster presentations will provide a valuable format for dialogue outside the structured plenary and breakout sessions, and thus will be a significant component of this symposium.

Posters selected from abstract submissions will be displayed during a formal poster session and reception with authors available for discussion. Poster abstracts will also be published in the electronic book of abstracts on CD-ROM. If you wish to present a poster, submit an abstract for review no later than March 31, 2008. Abstracts MUST be submitted ONLINE via this web site.

Student poster authors will be eligible to compete for “Best Poster” awards based on the quality of the abstract, poster, and discussion. Poster presenter winners will be announced during the closing session on Friday morning.

Topics for abstract submission include but are not limited to the following:

  • State of knowledge on climate variability and climate change at seasonal, decadal, and multi-decadal time scales

  • Impacts of climate variability and climate change on agriculture and natural resources

  • Stakeholder needs for climate information related to agriculture and natural resources

  • Integrated approaches that combine research, extension, and education in the application of climate information

  • Extension and application of climate information for agriculture and natural resources

  • Short- and long-term needs and opportunities for education to ensure the effective use of climate information by decision makers

  • Other: Allows you to indicate another category if your work does not fit in one of the above topics

Please note that poster presenters must register for the symposium.

Abstract submission is closed.
