National Wine Centre of Australia, Adelaide, Australia


The abstract submissions have now closed.


Abstracts are invited for oral and poster presentations. If you wish to submit an abstract for consideration by the Organising Committee (OC), you must also intend to register for the Symposium.

The major themes at the 2018 meeting will be;

From plant
Trying to understanding the interaction of a plant’s genotype with the environment is a key driver of plant phenomics. How can we measure large numbers of plants in varying environmental conditions to identify the traits that will make them more tolerant to our changing climate? How can we use latest camera and sensor technology to get a better understanding of plant physiological processes and the environment in which they grow?

To data
As data acquisition improves rapidly in volume and complexity, the phenotyping bottleneck is shifting to data. How do we ensure the data we capture is high-quality and relevant? How do we combine different data sources to enrich the phenotyping measurement information? How do we annotate and manage data so it can be shared, re-used and queried?

To impact
Plant phenomics brings together a whole suite of expertise, from plant biologists to engineers and statisticians. Working collaboratively, these disciplines can advance our understanding of plant performance and resilience, and we can make progress towards identifying the genetics of stress tolerance and breeding higher yielding crops.

The OC reserves the right to decide the format of presentation on the basis of time and space available.

Abstracts are to be provided in English.

Types of Presentations
Oral Presentation - If your abstract is accepted as a oral presentation you will be allocated a session (time to be advised) within the program.
Poster Presentation - If your abstract is accepted as a poster, you will be required to produce a poster which follows the poster guidelines.

Format for Abstracts
Abstracts should be a summary of the presentation and must not exceed 250 words.
Do not include titles or degrees with the text of the abstract.
Any abbreviations should be defined where first mentioned. Abstracts will be published as submitted without any modification.
Check spelling and grammar.
Present sufficient data to support conclusions – it is unsatisfactory to use statements such as “data will be presented” or “results will be discussed”.
Failure to observe these requirements will exclude the abstract from consideration.

All presenters must register to attend the Conference and are responsible for their own travel, accommodation and registration expenses. A condition of acceptance is that at least one author presents at the Conference.

Abstract submission
On-line submission is the only method of receipt of abstracts.

You will be guided through the submission process and given instructions as required. You can save the submission at any time (even if incomplete) and return to it at a later stage, as long as it's prior to the submission deadline. You can withdraw your submission at any time too.

Please submit your abstract no later than Monday, 2nd July 2018 -
 extended to Monday, 16 July 2018 at 5.00pm ACST (UTC +09:30)

Confirmation of Receipt of Abstracts
Immediately following submission, you will receive an acknowledgment confirming receipt of your abstract, including a submission reference number. These details should be used if you wish to edit your abstract up to and no later than the submission deadline Monday, 16th July 2018. No changes will be possible after this deadline.

Abstracts notifications will be sent out via email to abstrct submitter in August 2018.
