Have you ever sweltered in the steamy heat of a summer corn field, or escaped a biting winter wind by skiing into a forest canopy? The special microclimates of crops and forests are the joy of members of the Canadian Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology. We are a group of scientists, professors, retirees, students and environmental consultants who have a special interest in the way vegetated surfaces interact with the atmosphere.
The joint CMOS/CGU Congress will be held on May 31 to June 4, 2010 in Ottawa, Ontario at the Crowne Plaza. Please submit abstracts electronically to https://www1.cmos.ca/abstracts before the deadline of February 17, 2010. You will be asked to submit your abstract to one of several planned sessions that are listed at http://www.cmos.ca/congress2010/scientificsessionse.html and to specify your preference for either an oral or a poster presentation. An abstract fee of $50 will be charged at the time of submission. Your abstract will be evaluated by the Scientific Program Committee and you will be notified of acceptance by 2 March 2010. Details for your oral or poster presentation will be provided by 17 March 2010. CMOS and CGU student members are welcomed and encouraged to apply for a Student Travel Bursary when submitting an abstract; the application form may be found at: http://cmos.ca/congress2010/studentse.html The deadline for submission is February 26, 2010.
