Information for Presenters

Abstract Review Process

CNPS is committed to high quality science, thus abstracts will be submitted to a thorough review process. Abstracts will be reviewed by members of the Abstracts Team, composed of professionals with extensive experience in plant conservation in academic, government, and private sector occupations.

If your abstract cannot be accommodated as an oral presentation in the themed sessions due to time constraints, you will be notified as soon as possible so that you will have ample time to prepare a poster or elect to give a Lightning Talk.


If your abstract is selected, you will be notified with an acceptance e-mail by October 13, 2017 at the latest.
