Welcome to the Plant Biology 2023 Submission Portal!

We're delighted to announce that the American Society of Plant Biologists is now accepting proposals for concurrent symposium topics and workshops for Plant Biology 2023. 

Plant Biology 2023 will be an in-person meeting with an online option for select sessions taking place in Savannah, GA from August 5 - 9, 2023. The deadline for concurrent symposium topics and workshop submissions is November 20th, 2022; notifications will be made the week of December 16-22, 2022.

Please note the two (2) submission types that are currently available in this call for proposals:

Concurrent Symposia:

  • Topic proposals will be reviewed by the conference program committee, with up to 14 topics selected to be included within the scientific program.
  • Symposium Chairs are responsible for moderating their symposium and discussion, as well as identifying, inviting, and confirming 5 speakers for their session; however, we ask that you run your proposed slate of speakers through the Program Committee using the submission form and receive approval before any formal invitations are issued to them.
  • All concurrent symposium presentations must be delivered in person as 105-minute sessions (1 hour 45 mins) sessions, broken into 20-minute segments per speaker (5 speakers).
  • Proposals not selected may re-submit in the Spring as an independent abstract for an oral presentation or poster.


  • Community-driven sessions that are more interactive and hands-on learning (non-scientific).
  • Focus Areas desired for 2023: Technical Development and Innovation, Professional Development, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
  • Sessions can be delivered in person or virtual (with preference to in-person), and range from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on need and availability.

Plant Biology 2023 will feature up to five plenary symposia, large poster sessions, interactive workshops, and up to 30 concurrent symposia comprised primarily of speakers selected by the Program Committee from submitted abstracts.

Proposals should be submitted in this platform by following the step-by-step process. Submissions may not include any graphics or tabular material.

Registration is required for all attendees, speakers, chairs, and presenters. We expect registration to open mid to late January 2023.
