Florida Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises Conference

Poster Presentation Opportunity

Opportunity to Present a Poster at Florida Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises Conference.

Submission Deadline: 5:00pm, Monday, June 16th

All Individuals working in areas related to small, family, specialty and alternative farming enterprises conducive to Florida’s climate are invited to submit an abstract for consideration as a poster presentation at the conference. This is an excellent opportunity to generate visibility for your organization, farm, or company, to share details of your work, successes and lessons learned, and to interact directly with Florida’s farming communities.

Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference program, and posters will be displayed in the exhibit room. Poster PDFs will also be included on the conference website for continued visibility even after the event has concluded. Presenter authors should plan to be available mid-morning on Saturday, August 2nd, for poster discussion. The posters will be judged and the top three recognized at the conference, on the website, and on the Small Farms Facebook page. See past winners.

Abstract submission details and poster presentation information are below. Please note all presenters attending the conference are required to register and pay the applicable registration fee.

Poster presentations provide the opportunity for open dialogue and exchange of ideas among members of Florida’s farming community and related industries. As you develop your abstract and later poster presentation, please minimize repeated, direct reference to your company or product, and instead focus on information that is relevant to the farming community. Come ready to share your knowledge, ideas, lessons-learned and best practices. If you have questions about content, contact Dan Fenneman: 850-973-4138, dfenneman@ufl.edu. The abstract will be read by hundreds of people so proof it a last time prior to submitting.

Presenters participating are required to register and pay the applicable registration. No posters will be shown without a registered presenter. Early registration ends July 14, 2014.
