43rd Symposium on Pesticide Formulation and Delivery Systems: Creating Certainty in an Uncertain World
(In-person only event)
Date: November 7, 2023 - November 9, 2023
Event Location: Washington Hilton, Washington, District of Columbia, United States
Organized by: ASTM Committee E35 on Pesticides, Antimicrobials, and Alternative Control Agents
About the Event
The 43rd Symposium on Pesticide Formulation and Delivery Systems: Creating Certainty in an Uncertain World will be held November 7, 2023 - November 9, 2023. The symposium is organized by ASTM Committee E35 on Pesticides, Antimicrobials, and Alternative Control Agents, and will be held at the Washington Hilton, Washington, District of Columbia, United States in conjunction with the standards development meetings of the committee. The language of the symposium will be English.
Objective and Scope
This symposium will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of formulation, new technologies/chemistries, methods, and application technologies associated with pesticides, biologicals, plant nutrition, and adjuvant products (agrochemicals). Primary attention will be directed to presentations related to:
- Global regulatory trends impacting agrochemical formulations
- Formulation technologies to improve agrochemical applications and efficacy
- Application technologies related to improved pesticide applications and drift reduction
- Product stewardship, sustainability, and safety
- Physical and chemical test methods related to crop protection products
Other topics of interest include but are not limited to: innovative crop protection chemicals to improve safety and sustainability, innovative application technologies, innovative farming techniques, and innovative delivery systems.
Who Should Attend?
This symposium is targeted to individuals and companies involved in the development and/or research of agricultural, turf and ornamental, biological, plant nutrition formulations, chemistries and application and delivery systems in the agricultural and turf and ornamental industries. These entities also tend to be the stakeholders and interested parties.
To participate in the symposium, authors must submit a 250 to 300-word preliminary abstract using the online Abstract Submission Portal no later than June 9, 2023. To ensure your abstract was received into the ASTM database, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you have submitted an abstract.
The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The presentation and manuscript must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously published. Because a limited number of abstracts will be accepted, be sure that the abstract is complete to allow for careful assessment of the paper's suitability for this symposium. The symposium chair(s) will notify you via email by July 21, 2023 of your paper’s acceptability for presentation at the symposium. If the preliminary abstract is accepted, the author will be requested to submit a final abstract a few months before the symposium. The final abstracts will be distributed in a program booklet at the symposium.
Symposium authors are required to submit their papers for ASTM publication in Selected Technical Papers (STP), an online and printed, peer-reviewed publication for the international scientific and engineering community. STP papers should be full-length technical papers of approximately 10,000 words, significantly contribute to the technical literature, and must include a review of past work in the relevant area and present information of current interest or probe new fields. After the final selection of abstracts has been approved, the ASTM Editorial Office will send authors’ instructions via email, but also can be found by clicking here.
Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for the STP are due online no later than January 5, 2024 at the ASTM Editorial Office. The corresponding author (the author who is the main contact with ASTM Headquarters) will receive a copy of his/her paper in portable document format (PDF). All published authors will have the opportunity to purchase reprints of their papers at a nominal cost. Only those papers submitted by the manuscript due date will be included in the STP. Please note that all submitted papers are subject to peer review by two independent reviewers.
The STP will be submitted to the Library of Congress with an ISBN number and will be reviewed for inclusion in the Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and Google Scholar.
A technical program (presentation times, paper titles, and presenters’ names) will be posted on the ASTM website by mid-September 2023.
Registration opens approximately 10 weeks before the start of the symposium.
