This year's meeting theme―Crossroads in Science―describes a new frontier in science aimed at increasing agricultural productivity and reducing post-harvest losses through interdisciplinary collaboration to meet the future needs of a growing world population in a sustainable manner.
"For the 2015 APS annual meeting in Pasadena, California," says APS President Rick Bennett, "We encourage the submission of abstracts 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."
The 2015 APS Meeting Board will review abstracts for both oral technical and poster presentations for acceptance in the final program.
