POSTERS & FLASH TALKS

To engage all participants at the Annual Meeting, we are seeking both poster presentations and flash talks. Researchers, field foresters, and other land managers are encouraged to participate with a poster or flash talk, as sharing your experiences will benefit the entire membership.

To apply, please submit a word document with a title, authors’ names, affiliations, and locations, lead author’s contact information, a short abstract, and whether the submission is being considered for a poster or flash talk. The body of the abstract (not including names, etc.) is limited to 300 words. The lead authors of posters and flash talks accepted for presentation will be notified by email, and accepted abstracts will be included in the Spring NESAF News Quarterly.

Posters will be in a prominent location and available for viewing throughout the conference. NESAF will provide easels and 48 x 48 in foam core board for display.

Flash Talk Guidelines: Between 10 and 20 presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts. Plan for a 7 minute presentation, followed by 3 minutes for questions, although this time may be extended slightly based on the number of accepted flash talks. Abstracts that are particularly relevant or interesting may be invited to consider a full length (~25 minute) presentation during the conference instead of a flash talk.

To secure a poster space or submit your flash talk abstract for consideration, contact Tony D’Amato by February 15, 2023.

Help keep this meeting sustainable!  Consider carpooling and bringing your own refillable water bottle and coffee mug!
