Call for Papers Overview/Criteria for Acceptance

Abstract Submission Is Closed

APS members, CPS members, and nonmembers: February 3 - March 17, 2014

The 2014 APS-CPS Joint Meeting Board will solicit papers and poster submissions for the meeting in Minneapolis, MN beginning February 3, 2014. The technical program is being planned to provide the latest scientific information and technologies. Both oral and poster presentations will be reviewed for acceptance in the program.

This year's meeting theme―Plant Health Connectionsoffers discussion of the inseparable connections between plant health, soil health, agricultural sustainability, the safety and security of the food supply, also the sustainable production of feed, fiber, and biofuel crops.

NOTE: To fit into the joint meeting program and available space, acceptance of oral presentation submissions will be limited to a total of 200. You are encouraged to submit oral presentation abstracts early. No individual may be the presenter of more than one oral presentation. Posters are open to anyone and there is no limit to the number of poster submissions. Early submissions are encouraged to avoid delays on the last day.

APS and CPS will NOT be editing abstract submissions, so please remember to fully edit and carefully proof your content before submitting. Abstracts must be in final form with no grammatical, typographical, or factual errors.


  • Continuing this year, every Presenter of an oral or poster abstract must register by June 3, 2014 or the abstract is withdrawn from the meeting.
  • Specifying a preference between oral and poster does not guarantee placement in that area. Final presentation type will be determined by the Program Board.
