Presenting Posters at the Conference

The information below has been adjusted to reflect conference pivot to an all-virtual conference. Submission deadline has been extended to February 4.

The 2022 North American Raspberry & Blackberry Conference is now all virtual. A virtual Poster Session will be held on Thursday, February 24, at 11:30-12:30 ET.

Posters may be submitted by undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and extension educators associated with academic institutions and government agencies (USDA, etc.), and by industry researchers. Posters from growers about their farms or on-farm research are encouraged. 

Possible poster topics include raspberry/blackberry production/cultivation practices, yield improvement, pest/disease control, plant protection (pesticides/fumigants), improvement of product quality, variety research/breeding/trials, post-harvest handling, food safety, shelf life, new technology, economic models/survey, caneberry health benefits, etc. Posters from industry must be scientific and informational in nature and not sales-oriented or product-specific.

Each poster submission must identify at least one primary author who will agree to participate in the virtual discussion and Q&A. It is strongly encouraged that the primary author be registered for the virtual conference.  

NARBA will decide the relevance or acceptability of submitted posters and notify you no later than February 7 whether your poster is or is not accepted.
