Announcing SWITCHGRASS II, taking place in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, September 10-12 2013 at the Monona Terrace Convention Center. Registration, housing, and abstract submission information available at the following website: www.dfrc.wisc.edu/switchgrass
The conference will bring together scientists and students interested in switchgrass and other prairie grasses to discuss the state of the art of prairie grass research. It will be an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with researchers from a wide range of disciplines, including agronomy, physiology, ecology, soil science, pathology, entomology, genetics, genomics, and molecular biology. The conference will include a field tour, several plenary presentations, selected volunteered oral presentations, a poster session, and a community workshop.
All-day tour of prairie/savanna and bioenergy research. Eight topical areas, each with one invited speaker. One-day poster session, organized according to the eight topical areas.
A small group of abstracts from each topical area will be chosen, with the author’s permission, for oral presentations. The committee will make this decision before the conference, so that authors have time to plan for an oral presentation.
Abstract submission deadline: 11:59pm Friday 16 August (Central Daylight Time USA)
Registration deadline: 1 September
