Cotton Research Conference
5-7 September, 2017
CSIRO Discovery Centre, Canberra

Abstract Submissions

Call for Abstracts

The AACS Conference Committee invites abstract submissions for the standard 15 minute concurrent presentations (including question time), 3 minute pitch presentations and ePosters from a wide variety of disciplines (breeding, crop protection, farming systems, ag engineering, NRM science, physiology, fibre technology etc) provided that the research relates in some way to cotton production and/or processing. 

Please note: In order to be considered for presentation at the conference at least one of the authors must register and pay to attend the conference by 22 August 2017. A significant student discount is available and only applies to full-time trainees, graduate and post-doctoral students conducting agricultural studies related to cotton.


There will be no opportunity to physically display posters at this conference so we are offering delegates who still want to present their research in this format to utilise an ePoster that will be available through the conference App and website. ePosters should include the purpose of the study, a brief statement of methods, summary of results and conclusion.

ePosters should be submitted in .pdf format and emailed directly to so that they can be uploaded. Delegates wishing only to submit an ePoster and not be considered for a 3 minute talk should still submit an abstract by the due date through this submission portal.


Key Dates:

Abstract/poster submissions close: 31 July 2017
Extended deadline: 7 August 2017 - NOW CLOSED

Abstract Format:

Abstracts should include a title of no more than 20 words, author list and affiliations and an abstract body of no more than 300 words.  

Note: The submitter will appear as the first name in the author list so where possible the Abstract should be submitted by the author who will give the presentation at the conference and the subsequent co-authors entered in the order you wish them to appear in the conference information.
