We strongly encourage you to register in advance of the meeting as pre-registration allows us to compile a list of attendees with their affiliations, pre-print nametags, and give meal guarantees.

Students who will be requesting Financial Aid, please see "Student Registration/Financial Aid" below.

Registration:

Meeting registration is handled through the University of Missouri Conference Office. To register for the meeting, use the online registration link (when available) above by January 30, 2015.

MaGNET Awards:

The MaGNET Awards program will provide competitive support for attendance at the Conference, for members of underrepresented groups, as well as for faculty mentors accompanying eligible students.

Student Registration/Financial Aid:

The application deadline will be January 30, 2015.

The steering committee is soliciting federal grants and industry donations to help defray meeting costs for graduate students and for those undergraduates who are the first and presenting author of a poster or talk. The subsidy will be applied to the charges billed by Pheasant Run. Students will be notified by email of the amount of the subsidy about two weeks prior to the meeting. To apply, a student must:
  1. Make reservations at the Pheasant Run (credit card will not be charged until checkout).
  2. Register for the conference using the online meeting registration form; be sure to indicate your student status and include the requested additional information about your advisor, etc. (do not include payment for meeting registration).
Students are actively encouraged to apply for travel awards within their graduate program, college or university. If you have concerns about student financial aid or need information to assist in any local grant application, please do not hesitate to contact the conference chair, Mark Settles, at settles@ufl.edu.

NO applications for student support received after January 30, 2015 will be considered. Please act promptly to assure that your application is received before this deadline.

Maize Meeting Announcements:

Due to increased costs associated with printing and mailing, and the ability to reach nearly all cooperators and interested attendees via electronic means, meeting announcements will be sent via email only. To ensure you receive future announcements, please make sure your contact information in MaizeGDB is current (http://www.maizegdb.org/person.php).
