Deadline for submission of abstracts is May 15. There is a $35 fee/abstract for publication of abstracts in the Canadian Journal of Plant Pathology. The format of abstracts must follow that for CJPP (submit-abstracts). Underline the speaker’s name, indicate whether the presentation is oral or poster, and indicate if it is a student presentation.
Posters should be prepared in a portrait format and be 3 ft wide by 4 ft tall. Posters should be readable from a distance of 2 meters. For adequate visibility, the font size should be a minimum of 30 point. Avoid overcrowding of tables and figures. Each table and figure should have a legend and a title. Graphics are encouraged. The poster should be self explanatory. PowerPoint is a good tool for making posters.
Oral presentations will be 15 minutes. This will include a 12 minute presentation and 3 minutes for questions. This should be strictly adhered to, especially for students in the oral competition. PowerPoint is a good tool for making presentations. Each presentation should have clear, appealing slides. The presentation should have a title slide, an introduction to the importance of the work, and a clear objectives slide. Slides should not be overcrowded. Graphics and photographs are encouraged. A good rule of thumb is one minute for each slide, not including the title slide.
