Presentation Information

Audio-Visual Information
All contributed paper and symposium sessions will be in a variety of meeting rooms. Audio amplification equipment will be provided in all rooms as needed. LCD projectors and computer stations will be available as standard presentation options. Computers will support Windows and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations. Be sure to double-check your presentation for accuracy as PowerPoint does not always carry over from MacIntosh to Windows operating systems. For computer presentations, files can be accepted on USB stick.
Please visit the Presentation Ready Room (Salon 7 - Shaw Centre) well before your scheduled session so your presentation can be loaded.

All Posters should fit onto bulletin boards 4 ft high by 4 ft wide (1.21 meters x 1.21 meters). Materials may be secured to bulletin boards with push-pins, which will be provided. All posters will be on display for the duration of the conference, and an All Society Poster Session will be held on Monday, July 28th. Posters will be grouped by topic and included within the program of the disciplinary section or society chosen by the submitting author. Recent Topics Posters will be displayed as a seperate section and also presented on Monday as part of the All Society Poster Session.


Oral papers, or podium presentations, will be 15 minutes in length (inclusive of questions). Papers will be grouped into topical sessions and included within the program of the disciplinary section or society chosen by the submitting author.  The entire program is available here and will be on the conference app (coming soon!)

Fourteen plant science societies from the United States and Canada will see over 2,000 academic and industry attendees this year sharing research and exploring topics that focus on highly diverse, recent discoveries in the plant sciences.

This conference will include keynote speakers, academic and industry researchers presenting their latest work, hands-on workshops, networking events  and posters on recent developments for a highly broad range of plant science topics.

Here are some of the comments from last year's BOTANY conference:

  • "Nice diversity of talks, with important sessions on new technologies and methods."
  • "I was re-invigorated..... made some new, valuable connections."
  • "The meeting itself was excellent and without a doubt one of the most interesting that I have attended. There were many superb talks."
  • "Everyone was friendly and easy to talk to. Even the top researchers were easy to reach. I met many new people with whom I hope to collaborate in the near future."
