The 2021 Soil Health Innovations Conference (SHIC) will offer a virtual poster presentation hall as a way to encourage and foster soil health innovation by providing a platform for discussing soil health research and projects.

Exhibitors may upload a short video and other materials to the conference website, where it will be available to attendees. And because the soil conference is online this year and will have a national audience, we expect upward of 500 people to view the exhibitions.

There will be designated times on the conference agenda for poster presenters to have live online chats with folks who have questions about their poster topics. Presenters can also set other times to chat with attendees, of course. They will be responsible for managing their chat time.

The virtual poster presentations will be a powerful way for researchers, farmers, and other attendees to network and to update themselves on the cutting edge of advancements in soil health.

Presenters will be notified of their selection status no later than February 25 so that ample time is allowed for updating the virtual event platform. If you have any questions, please contact Alyssa Ness at alyssan@ncat.org or Sandra Booth at sandrab@ncat.org
