CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Proposals are due by 5:00pm EST on Wed. November 24th, 2021
Each year, the Ontario Invasive Plant Council Conference brings together hundreds of professionals and concerned citizens with an interest in the management of invasive plants. Abstract submissions are now being considered for presentations to be held on Thursday, January 13th, 2022.
We are pleased to announce that our 2022 conference will once again be held virtually on Remo, our industry leading virtual outreach and networking software!
We will provide more details and training to selected speakers.
Conference Theme: Community of Knowledge
This year’s theme reflects the value of various “ways of knowing” and ways of sharing knowledge. Whether referring to the experiences of practitioners or community groups on the ground, to the findings of researchers, or to the traditional ecological knowledge of Indigenous peoples and land stewards, this year’s theme will focus on showcasing the diverse community of knowledge within the Ontario invasive plant community. This year’s conference will offer an opportunity to explore the strategies, programs, technologies, partnerships, research, and worldviews which shape current and future measures of controlling invasive plants.
The OIPC invites proposals from all fields, with projects focused on advancing conversation and strategies for invasive plant management.
Please complete the abstract submission form no later than November 24th, 2021, at 5:00pm EST. The submission form is available here.
Speakers will be notified of the committee’s decision no later than December 3rd, 2021.
All questions may be directed to the event coordinator, Bailey Bingham, via email to Communication@OnInvasives.ca.
