The Northeastern Plant, Pest, and Soils Conference (NEPPSC) will be held January 4-7, 2021 and will take place virtually. The theme of the 2021 meeting will be: “Opportunities for Mutual Learning: Pests and Pandemics.” NEPPSC is jointly organized by the Northern Region of the American Society for Horticultural Science, (NR-ASHS), along with the Northeastern Weed Science Society (NEWSS), and the Northeastern Tri-Societies (NE-ASA-CSSA-SSSA).
The goal of this meeting is to provide a venue to bring together people with interests in horticulture, entomology, plant pathology, weed management, agricultural systems, agronomy, and soil science for the purpose of sharing of ideas and the presentation of the results of scientific studies and outreach programs. The judged student competitions will be held virtually and will consist of both oral presentations (8-minute presentation) and lightning talks (2-minute presentation with one slide in place of the poster session). Prizes will be awarded for both competitions in the amounts of $300 (1st place), $200 (2nd place), and $100 (3rd place).
Titles are due on Friday, October 2nd and can be submitted at http://www.weedscimeetingabstracts.com beginning September 1.
Registration opens on November 1st and there will be a reduced flat rate registration fee of $150.
Abstracts are due on January 3rd.
Student travel awards are available to cover the cost of registration. Interested students should e-mail a cover letter and a copy of their CV to Adrienne.Kleintop@delval.edu.
