Call for Proposals Reopened
The deadline to edit an existing proposal or submit a new proposal is May 7, 2021.
Proposals are invited for program sessions with an organizer and several presenters, as well as for individual presentations. Program sessions will run concurrently with others. Program session formats can include multiple-speaker sessions, roundtable discussion, question-and-answer, lightning talks, and other innovative formats on specific topics.
Sessions or individual presentations can address any aspect of IPM, such as research, Extension, regulatory actions, policy and IPM in practice.
