Reporting/Presenting Procedures -- PLEASE READ

Titles and abstracts must be submitted via email using the methods outlined below. Also, as in 2014, we will be using a file server for submission of presentations PRIOR to the meeting.  Please see below for further instructions.

  • The printed booket will contain titles/author/abstract ONLY with a limit on length.
  • The on-line version of the report has NO PAGE LIMIT (but please be reasonable).
  • There will be a poster session. You may choose it as an option for any or all of your reports. Indicate your choice in the email to which you attach the title/abstract. In addition, if there are more talks than we feel we can cover in the meeting's time frame, we will ask that some presentations be given as posters. If you are not contacted by one of the officers, assume that your presentation will be given in the format you requested.
  • You need to submit a title/author/abstract to "reserve" a place in the program. A longer written report is optional; if none is submitted, the abstract will go in the on-line proceedings. Unscheduled talks may be given at the end of the meeting if time allows (an infrequent occurrence).
  • All submissions must be in electronic format.



Submit title and abstract by (tbd).

Abstract format

Upload instructions


Check the program agenda to determine the order of individual presentations.


Oral presenters attend your session (attending the previous one is also suggested) and be prepared to present before, during, or after the time frame listed. Visual aids are optional, but greatly enhance your talk.

All talks are due on the upload server before Noon on Monday, January 11, 2016.

Speakers will receive by email a link to an DropBox file upload site where they can transfer their presentation files.  This upload MUST be done by the deadline. Please contact Don Thomson (dthomso123@me.com) with any questions about the upload.
Presentations not submitted by the deadline will be moved to the end of the agenda, time permitting.

Compatibility problems with the computers are not uncommon, so submitting the presentations early is highly recommended if corrections need to be made.

Length of Your Talk:  Presentations should be no longer than 15 minutes duration. Concise and direct papers are most appreciated; presentations with durations much longer than those of the significant findings found therein are likely to be nominated for the Rubber Chicken.  


Posters: If you are in a poster session, please have your poster up in the designated area in the lobby by noon, Wednesday. It can be left up throughout the meeting. Please be present at your poster during the Poster Session, which occurs during the 10 am coffee break on Thursday, January 15.

Posters are limited to dimensions of 48 x 48 inches.  Posters are to be attached by velcro (hook and loop) fasteners;  tacks or pins are not to be used (the poster boards are graciously loaned to us by the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission). 

No booths or other vendor accommodations are available.
