Thank you for your interest in submitting a poster for the 2018 North American Raspberry & Blackberry Conference! Posters are of great interest to attendees and receive considerable attention and discussion. A poster session is scheduled for Friday, February 23 at 5:00-6:00 pm.  

It is not necessary to attend the conference to submit a poster, though some preference will be given to posters submitted by conference attendees. Visit the conference home page to learn more about the program and registration. 

Submitting posters:

  • Topics: Posters should be directly related to raspberries and/or blackberries. A wide variety of topics is acceptable.
  • Who can submit: Researchers, students, extension, growers, or others in the caneberry community. Informal posters from growers are welcome; other growers will be very interested in how your farm grows and markets your berries or conducts on-farm research. Industry posters will be accepted if focused on research/information and not significantly self-promotional.
