Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission has closed

The Conference on Applied Statistics in Agriculture and Natural Resources invites researchers and statisticians from academia, industry, and government to submit an abstract for consideration as an oral or poster presentation on various topics related to statistics in agriculture and natural resources. Presentations will focus on an array of topics and our goal is to develop a fully rounded agenda that ensures a diverse representation. This conference will provide a framework for statisticians to share technical information that will promote the transfer of knowledge to a broad audience.


Please Note:

  • To allow as many people as possible to give an oral presentation, all authors are limited to giving a maximum of one talk, however, you may present multiple posters if you wish.
  • Posters will be on display throughout the conference on our virtual platform. Attendees will be able to view a PDF of your poster and your abstract.
  • All oral presenters, if accepted, will be asked to pre-record their talks. We will post the pre-recorded presentation two weeks before the conference to allow participants time to view the talks before the live Q&A sessions.
  • Proof your abstract carefully and obtain applicable approvals prior to submission.

Registration Required

All presenters (oral and poster) are required to register and pay the applicable fee in order to attend the conference. Presenters must register by Friday, March 19, 2021 to confirm participation. If not registered by March 19, 2021, your abstract will not be published and will be removed from the program.
