Abstract Submission

Welcome to the Rhizosphere 5 website.

Abstract submission for the 2019 conference will open September 4, 2018.

The Science Advisory Committee will review all abstracts, taking into consideration the author's preferred choice of presentation type.

Abstracts will be accepted for oral, poster or poster pitch presentation. The Advisory Committee reserves the right to decide on the final form of presentation, which implies that the final assignment to an oral or a poster presentation might not be consistent with the expressed preference of the submitter. While we make an effort to consider the preferred presenation type this can - especially for oral presentations - not be guaranteed.
