NACTA Abstract Submissions


Welcome to the NACTA Abstract Submission Platform

North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA) are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for Poster and Oral presentations for the NACTA Conference to be held in Las Cruces, New Mexico from June 21-23, 2023. The NACTA conference provides opportunities to connect with and learn from others who share the same passion for the improvement of teaching and learning in agriculture, food and natural resources. The annual NACTA conference will provide you with new teaching techniques, ideas and resources. It is also one of the best professional development activities for networking with other teaching professionals where the common discipline is “teaching.” 

POSTER SESSIONS – General Information
All attendees of the meeting can submit an abstract for a poster presentation. Abstracts shall be 300 words or less in length. While references and figures are a usual component of a full poster presentation, do not include them in the 300-word abstract. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Review Committee for quality and relevance. Accepted posters will be displayed on-site in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

ORAL PRESENTATIONS – General Information
Oral presentations are 10 minutes in length with an additional 5 minutes for Q&A with the audience (totaling 15 minutes per presentation).

Abstracts should be 300 words or less. Do not include references, tables, or figures in your abstract (though they are a welcome portion of the live presentation). Abstracts will be reviewed by the Review Committee for quality and relevance.

The deadline for abstract submission is February 1, 2023.

Although you may submit as many abstracts as you wish, we ask that you please understand that multiple accepted presentations can create scheduling complexities. While we try to take schedule conflicts into account, we cannot guarantee specific presentation days/times.

Author decisions will be sent in April 2023. If accepted, the presenter of the abstract will be required to register for the conference by the early bird deadline. ANY abstract without a registered presenter will be removed from the program.
