Poster Presentation Submissions

Posters can be a very effective means of conveying research results, teaching methods, extension programs, and other types of information to a diverse audience.

Advantages of poster presentations over oral presentations include information availability for a longer period of time and increased time for interaction with authors.  Poster production need not be overly expensive and is a valuable investment with future uses (field days, other conferences, static displays, short course, etc.).

We are also offering, to ten current college students a Scholarship to attend the ROW 12 Symposium by submitting a poster. We only have ten spots available so if you are an interested college student, please submit your poster abstract soon to be eligible for one of our registration scholarships.
