Call for Symposia, Colloquia, and Workshops
BOTANY 2010 will be held at Providence, Rhode Island, July 31 – August 4, 2010.
Societies participating in BOTANY 2010 will include:
- the American Bryological and Lichenological Society (ABLS),
- the American Fern Society (AFS),
- the American Society of Plant Taxonomists (ASPT), and
- the Botanical Society of America (BSA).
In preparation for Botany 2010 we are now soliciting proposals for symposia, colloquia, workshops, discussion sessions, and field trips. Symposia are organized around a topic of potential broad interest, are timely because of recent advances or synthesis in the field, or are particularly relevant to the conference venue. Colloquia are organized around more specialized topics with all presentations adhering to the standard 15 minute timeframe. The number of presentations in a colloquium is variable. Discussion sessions (“roundtable discussion”) are organized around a particular topic of interest with the bulk of the time devoted to discussion that engages the audience. Workshops are distinguished from symposia and colloquia by the inclusion of time devoted to hands-on activities (e.g., software demonstrations, data analysis tutorials, etc.).
