Call for Presentations

We are actively calling for plenary and poster board presentation submissions. Plenary topics should accommodate an hour-long presentation and follow a keynote, forum, or panel format. If accepting audience questions, please allow at least 20 minutes of the hour for audience participation. We encourage proposals from a broad spectrum of industry professionals, academic and research specialists, nonprofit organizations, and agricultural producers and associations. Successful submissions will adhere to the conference theme of Soil Health Innovations and relate to the conference goals outlined in the “about” page of the website.

Seating will be classroom style for approximately 300 with a large center stage equipped with audio and visual components. The conference will also be live-streamed nationally using the KUSM public broadcasting studio at Montana State University.
