The HarlanIV organising committee is calling for abstracts to be submitted by Tuesday 31 May 2022 to be considered during the TropAg conference and HarlanIV symposium in Brisbane Australia between 31 October to 2 November 2022.
The TropAg conference will incorporate HarlanIV, AgFutures and four other themes as follows, as part of the conference program.
1: Agribusiness, value chains, and the bioeconomy
2: Predictive agriculture
3: Sustainable agrifood systems
4: Healthy agriculture and food for healthy communities
Abstracts must be submitted by Tuesday 31 May 2022.
A small number of abstract authors will be selected to deliver a short 10-minute oral presentation during one of the conference symposium sessions. Abstract presentations will be selected based on the high scientific quality and potential impact of research. We also encourage higher degree by research (HDR) students and early and mid-career researchers to submit an abstract for consideration for an oral presentation.
Accepted posters will be on display for the duration of the conference. Authors will be asked to attend their relevant poster viewing session linked to a specified conference theme. The date and time of poster viewing sessions will be confirmed in mid-2022.
