The American Society of Plant Biologists is now accepting submissions for Plant Biology 2024

Honolulu, Hawaii
June 22 to 26, 2024

To support the varying needs of the diverse ASPB community, members of the plant science community may submit up to two abstract proposals across four abstract categories. All submissions must be made through ASPB’s official Call for Abstracts portal. All abstracts are reviewed by the ASPB Program Committee

Submission Categories

Community-Proposed Concurrent Symposium
Proposal submission deadline November 2, 2023

These are 90-minute in-person scientific symposia organized by the abstract submitter. The proposal submitter will be fully responsible for designing a concurrent symposium that includes 4 to 5 talks. The submitter will recruit 4-5 speakers to participate in the symposium and ensure that all speakers draft and submit scientific abstracts for their talks. Learn more. 

Workshops Proposals
Proposal submission deadline November 2, 2023

Workshops may be 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes in duration and be delivered in person or virtually. The proposal submitter will be responsible for fully designing the workshop. Workshops are interactive, provide hands-on learning opportunities, and offer clear learning objectives for participants. Workshop topics range from communication techniques to mental health to career development and everything in between. Learn more. 

Focus areas for 2024 are:

  • Technical Development and Innovation
  • Professional Development
  • Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Independent Abstract
Early abstract submission deadline for oral presentations January 4, 2024

Any member of the plant biology community is invited to submit an abstract on their topic of expertise. The abstract will be reviewed by the Program Committee and, if selected, placed in a concurrent symposium developed by the Program Committee. January 4 is the deadline to submit an independent abstract to be considered for an oral presentation. Abstracts not selected for a concurrent symposium talk or received after this deadline will be offered an opportunity to present a poster.  Learn more.

Poster Abstract
Abstract submission deadline May 29, 2024

All members of the plant science community have the opportunity to present a poster at the Plant Biology conference. All poster presenters must submit an abstract and produce a poster to be displayed at the Plant Biology conference. Abstracts submitted prior to the deadline will be assigned a poster number. Abstracts received after the deadline will not have a poster number, and the poster will be placed in the “breaking science” area of the exhibition hall. Learn more.
