CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
For the rescheduled 2014 Rare Plant Conference, we are requesting presentations from anyone who has information to share on issues relevant to rare plant conservation. The options include 20-minute presentations, 10-minute “To The Point” presentations, and posters. Student papers and posters are especially encouraged. Abstracts and associated information must be submitted by 31 January 2014 to Beth Colket (email@example.com). Authors will be notified about the selection of their presentation by 7 February 2014.
For those interested in presenting during the “To The Point” session (10 minute presentations), you need only submit your name, contact information, presentation title, and a brief presentation description (2-3 sentences). The “To The Point” presentations are good opportunities to update colleagues on interesting observations that could lead to future research or projects you are initiating, have in progress, or have preliminary results for.
For those interested in presenting during the 20-minute presentations or a poster presentation, please fill out the Call for Presentations form on the INPS website at
https://idahonativeplants.org/rare-plant-conference/ The Call for Presentations form can also be e-mailed upon request. These longer presentations are ideal for more extensive research that is publishable.
