1 - Adherence to the areas of concentration of research lines triggered by the program: Plant Breeding, Basic Genetics and Applied Genomics.

2 - It will also be accepted works of related areas with application to plant breeding such as: management of crops in different genotypes, post-harvest management of different genotypes.

3 - Works with application of diseases evaluation in plants under different genetic controls.

Preparation and Presentation of Posters

Each work presented in poster form will be entitled to a panel area of 0.90m wide by 1.20m high (portrait format), prefer ably printed on canvas or water proof paper and finished with ropeso that it can be hung on the panels available to participants.

The poster should basically contain the following sequence: Title; Authors; Binding institutions; Introduction; Goals; Material and methods; Results; Conclusions (optional); References (optional).

The title and authors of the work on the poster should be the same as contained in the Abstracts and in the same order.

Acknowledgments (optional). The exhibits should be brief, clear and objective, restricted to the essential information on each topic.

Poster printing should be of a good quality so that the text can be read from a distance of at least 2 m (See model below).
