Fostering research and education on the past, present, and future uses of plants by people.


There are two on-campus accommodation options for conference participants: dormitory lodging and the Emory Conference Center Hotel. All on-campus housing options are just a short walk away from the main meeting venue at the Emory Student Center. Moreover, regular Emory shuttle buses and special transportation for delegates requiring accessible transportation is also available. See the Conference Accessibility webpage for more information.

Participants may also choose off-campus housing, but are required to pay a $3/day/person commuter rate to cover the costs of parking and access to campus facilities.

Recreational Activities
All in-person conference registrants will have access to informal, drop-in recreation at the Emory Woodruff P.E. Center. This includes access to the gym, work-out areas, basketball and volleyball courts, track, tennis courts, pool (during published open swim hours), and climbing wall.
