2012 Maize Genetics Abstract and Program Information:
All abstracts must be submitted electronically by Jan. 31, 2012. Use the link below to begin the process of submitting your abstract. Those who plan to be away near the time of the submission deadline tending to winter crops should submit abstracts in advance. Please indicate on the abstract form whether you wish to present a talk or a poster. Do not check both options. Abstracts are limited to 300 words. Time constraints on the meeting may mean that some authors who request oral presentations will be asked to present their data in poster format instead.
Abstracts should be submitted under one of the seven research topic categories listed on this abstract submission page and meeting website, based on which the submitter believes is most appropriate. Session topics will be determined (by the MGCSC) based on the abstracts selected for talks, but will likely be similar to the listed categories. The list of research categories has changed slightly from previous meetings.
Update (March 12th). Talk and poster submissions are now closed.
Logo/photo Contest Submission:
Logo submission is now closed. No more logos are being accepted.
Author Presentation Notification:
Authors of abstracts selected for oral presentations will be informed by email by February 14, 2012. Authors should check the meeting website to make sure that their abstracts are posted and contain no errors. If you have not received any information about your abstract, and it is not accessible on the web site by February 21, 2012, please contact John Fowler by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consistent with past practice, and the spirit of collegiality and inclusivity within the maize community, all poster abstracts have been accepted for presentation.
Each poster space is 122cm horizontal x 122cm vertical (48 inches horizontal x 48 inches vertical) and authors are responsible for bringing their own tacks for hanging the poster.
Abstract submissions are due by January 31, 2012.
- Biochemical and Molecular Genetics
- Cell and Developmental Biology
- Computational and Large-Scale Biology
- Education & Outreach
- Quantitative Genetics & Breeding
