Workshop Submission Form


Conference Overview

 Botany 2005 represents the annual meeting of four professional societies, including: 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). 

Members of all participating societies are encouraged to organize and present workshops at the annual meeting. Workshops are theme-based, can focus on a variety of educational or research topics, and typically include a hands-on presentation style. Most workshops include either a two-hour, half-day or a full-day program and take place on Sunday or Thursday, the days before or after the paper, poster and symposium sessions.

Workshops are ticketed events and generally have limited enrollments. Careful consideration must be given to logistical issues and to support facilities such as computers, laboratory requirements, and seating style.
