ABRC 2017 Agenda Announced

We have a FULL two days of exciting talks and presentations planned for the American Bee Research Conference in Galveston, TX on January 12 and 13, 2017. We’re looking forward to a great meeting!

Check out the ABRC 2017 page for more information.

General Agenda

Detailed Presentation Schedule

As a reminder, PRE-REGISTRATION IS DUE DEC 16. If you want to attend the North American Beekeeping Conference prior to the start of ABRC (on Mon-Wed), then you MUST PRE-REGISTER. This is a change enforced by the beekeeping convention organizers and this is the only way that registering for ABRC also covers registration for the beekeeping conference.

Pre-registration and RSVP-ing for the AAPA catered lunch business meeting on Friday is also required by Dec 16. Those that do not RSVP for the lunch are welcome at the business meeting but will not be able to have the provided lunch. If you are receiving registration through the NABC, please RSVP for the lunch by e-mailing me at Michael.simonefinstrom@ars.usda.gov.

Abstract submission

Abstract submission is now CLOSED for talks, but is STILL OPEN for POSTERS! Poster submission deadline is December 1st.

Registration and membership payments are still being accepted online. Pay online and simplify your time at the meeting.
