2017 LICH Conference and Tradeshow
Call for Student Abstracts for Poster Presentations
The Landscape Industry Council of Hawaii (LICH) is inviting undergraduate and graduate students to submit abstracts for the 5th Annual Student Poster Session, which will be held at the 2017 LICH Conference and Tradeshow on October 5, 2017. Abstracts of current or recently completed research which have relevant applications to landscaping or the landscape industry in Hawaii (e.g. design, installation, management, plant propagation and selection, environmental issues, etc.) are eligible. Abstracts are limited to 200 words and should state briefly and clearly the purpose, methods, results (or results to date) and conclusions of the study. Impacts or contributions of the research to landscaping/landscape industry should also be clearly stated in the abstract. The LICH conference is well attended by landscape professionals in the state (i.e. landscape architects, landscapers, nursery industry, horticulturists, arborists, botanical garden/arboreta staff, turf and greens keepers, etc.).
The goals of the student poster session are: 1) to provide a venue for presenting research results relevant to industry and industry professionals, and 2) to provide professional training and networking opportunities to students. The top two research posters will be selected by conference attendees and will be featured in an article in the LICH magazine, Hawaii Landscape.
