Title Submissions: Submissions are to be made at http://weedscimeetingabstracts.com and it is best to access via Google Chrome. There are two types of title submissions: 1) Poster and 2) Virtual Talk.
Only students are eligible to submit a Virtual Talk. Students can submit a single poster title or a single virtual talk title, but not both. Notice: There is only a three-week window to submit a title, between Oct. 17 and Nov. 9, 2020. Titles submitted without submitting the SWSS meeting registration payment by Nov. 9, 2020, will be withdrawn from the meeting and not listed in the program or presented as a virtual talk or the poster will not be listed at the SWSS website for viewing.
Posters: Posters can be submitted by any SWSS member (student, professor, gov., industry, friend, etc.). Students submitting a poster will be part of the Student Poster Contest. Register for the SWSS meeting at www.swss.ws/annual-meeting prior to entering a Poster Title. Follow the WSSA guidelines for developing a poster. The Poster (and Abstract) should be submitted through http://weedscimeetingabstracts.com submission site by Jan. 8, 2021, and should be submitted in a .pdf format. The Abstract can be submitted by copying and pasting. Student Posters will be judged as at past SWSS meetings and there will be M.S. and Ph.D. categories. Posters will be viewable at the swss.ws website by all members on Jan. 19, 2021.
Virtual Talks: Live Virtual Talk titles can be submitted by students only and all talks will be part of the Student Virtual Talk Contest. Register for the SWSS meeting at www.swss.ws/annual-meeting prior to entering a Virtual Talk Title. The Virtual Talk titles should also be submitted at http://weedscimeetingabstracts.com no later than Nov. 9, 2020. The live presentation should be almost identical to presenting a paper during an in-person annual meeting. However, this time you will be presenting from a computer using Zoom Video Communications (Zoom). There is no need to submit a .PPT file. However, students delivering a Virtual Talk must submit an Abstract by Jan. 8, 2021 or your talk will be canceled. Abstracts are due by Jan. 8, 2021 at the http://weedscimeetingabstracts.com website. Talks should be no longer than 13 minutes as they will be stopped at 14 minutes which will not allow time for questions, thus the talk will receive no points in the questions portion on the judges grading sheet. Be sure to use a reliable, high-speed internet connection to ensure optimal virtual talk quality.
