2015 Special Sessions, Workshops, Field Trips
The window for Special Session submissions is now closed. Thank you to all who participated. Oral Technical Session submissions will be accepted from February 2 through March 16, 2015.
As you prepare for submissions, we encourage you to consider the 2015 APS Annual Meeting Theme: "Crossroads in Science," chosen by incoming President, Rick Bennett
“For the 2015 APS annual meeting in Pasadena, California, we encourage the submission of special sessions and oral presentations that connect our discipline to technologies which enable metagenomic analyses needed to assess compositions, functions, and activities of all organisms in plant systems. We welcome all approaches through interdisciplinary collaborations from foundational to translational which contribute to the downstream goal of increasing the available amount of safe and nutritious food, feed and fiber to sustain the planet and its growing world population. APS invites you to join us in 2015 for Crossroads in Science as we explore the intersections of science.” Rick Bennett
