As part of the Georgia Organics’ goal to identify and support evaluation and research on the food system in Georgia, we invite students to submit research posters at this year’s Annual Conference. By its nature, food system research is interdisciplinary, drawing from public health, education, agricultural science, foods and nutrition, family and consumer sciences, geography, anthropology, and community-based participatory research and action research, among other fields. We encourage posters that identify or inform key knowledge gaps related to the implementation, sustainability, and effectiveness on any issue within the Georgia food system.
Through this poster session we seek to support the development of a vibrant local food system research community in Georgia by creating opportunities for students across disciplines to share their research and develop the foundation for broader collaboration.
For consideration, please submit our online application here: https://goo.gl/forms/MrZTfGVkuGO8GVzN2 by Nov. 17.
The information needed for submission of this application includes:
1. Poster Title and abstract (limited to 250 words)
2. Names and affiliations of all co-authors
3. Contact information for presenter
4. Please used the email subject “Poster Submission – Georgia Organics Annual Conference”
5. Students: Certification that a faculty advisor has signed off on your submission
Poster space is limited.
To encourage participation from students at all levels and institutions, we will offer registration scholarships for a small number of presenters at the early bird member rate of $175, for two days instead of the full $400. This does not include a ticket to the Farmers Feast on Saturday night. Farmers Feast tickets will need to be purchased separately.
