This event is for early career scientists working in biological, chemical, environmental and other relevant sciences and all interested in learning about progress and meeting new talent in agrisciences.

  • Experience presenting to a multidisciplinary audience
  • Raise your profile, build networks, find ideas and inspiration
  • Hone your career skills

The previous four events in this annual series have included a wide range of disciplines such as agronomy, crop and plant physiology, environmental sciences, molecular biology, plant nutrition, soil science, crop protection, analytical chemistry, biofuels and biomaterials.


PhD students and first post-docs are invited to submit an abstract of 300 words (max.) indicating title, authors and preference for presentation option. This should be sent to by the extended deadline of Friday 6 June 2014. There are three presentation options:

  • Oral paper (20 minutes)
  • Poster (A0: 1189 mm x 841 mm, portrait)
  • Poster plus Flash presentation (5 slides, 5 minutes)

Oral presentation slots are inevitably limited and will be allocated to achieve a balanced programme. Topics for presentations in any format may be results, reviews or plans and may have already been presented elsewhere. SCI’s publishing partner Wiley is generously sponsoring prizes for posters at this event. Prizes will be awarded, focusing on quality of science and clarity of communication.
