Call for Abstracts

Please consider submitting an abstract for an oral or a poster presentation at the 2024 International Oak Symposium. Oral presentations and posters should showcase research in silviculture, ecology, forest management, health, applied genetics, economics, forest products, or similar fields for a better understanding of oak regeneration, trees, stands, ecosystems, or landscapes. Oral presentations and posters on science-based collaborative projects or programs such as technology transfer, tree improvement, or other initiatives are also welcome. The deadline for Abstract submission is January 19, 2024.

Symposium registration is not yet open, but it will be open prior to notification of acceptance of the submitted paper or poster abstract.

All oral presenters will be asked to submit a short paper (~1000 words), which will be published in the conference proceedings that will be available at the Symposium. Instructions for short papers will be provided at the time of notification of oral or poster presentation acceptance for the concurrent sessions.

Presenters (oral and poster) will also have the opportunity to submit a full-length manuscript to a special journal issue that highlights prominent work delivered at the Symposium. More information on the special issue will be provided at a later date.

For more information about the abstract submission process, please visit the symposium website.  Direct any questions you have to Stacy Clark (stacy.l.clark@usda.gov) or Callie Schweitzer (callie.schweitzer@usda.gov).
