Abstract Submission Deadline has been extended
New Abstract Submission Deadlines
Oral Presentations Deadline - 30 November 2017
Poster Presentations Deadline - 31 January 2018
Abstracts of original research for presentation as oral or poster presentations, or covering topics of commercial appeal are invited to be presented at the conference.

Please note: While the deadline for submission has been extended, review of abstracts for oral presentations will be reviewed continually. As a result, authors desiring to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their abstract as soon as possible to increase their chances of consideration and acceptance.

The five main sub-themes that will drive the conference content and conversation are as follows:
  • Accelerating progress in advanced breeding for improved crop adaptation to climate risks
  • Improving productivity and increasing profitability to expand opportunities across global markets
  • Enhancing resilience in the face of biotic and abiotic challenges
  • Tackling key issues in food security and farming systems for improved livelihoods for the smallholder farmers
  • Exploring the future of the value-added: Nutrition, biofuels and feedstuffs for evolving consumer demands

It is a rare and fantastic opportunity to showcase research to the world sorghum community. Abstract submissions must be done online at or by contacting Lethisha Narayan.
