Call for Sessions Proposal Submission: 

The online submission process is easy and allows you to compose abstracts securely and collaboratively with colleagues throughout the world. 

Who Should Submit? 

Primary authors must be public horticulture professionals, volunteers, or trustees and be non-corporate members of the Association. Individuals who provide commercial services and goods to gardens may not serve as primary authors, but they are encouraged to collaborate with others to submit session ideas and may participate as presenters. Anyone with an interest in public horticulture from disciplines or organizations outside public horticulture are strongly encouraged to participate as presenters. There are no minimum educational requirements. 

Speaker Discounts 

All presenters are eligible for the member discount, whether registering before or after early-bird deadlines. 


By early January 2021, you will receive notification of the status of your proposal. 

Please note: Each individual may only submit or be included as a primary or presenting author on a total of 2 abstract submissions per submission period. (An author submitting two sessions in the first period by October 28 may still submit a poster and/or rapid-fire post January 4.)
