The International Turfgrass Society calls for papers to be presented at the 11th International Turfgrass Conference in Santiago, Chile, July 26-31, 2009. Please fill out the Title-Summary Form and return it to the Editor. The deadline for receipt of the Title-Summary form is March 1, 2008. The title, summary, and choice of discipline area will allow the editor to determine the appropriate Co-Editor to deal with the paper, and Title-Summary forms will be acknowledged with further instructions to authors and instructions for corresponding with the Co-Editor.

The first choice of presentation style will be considered by the program committee, but strong consideration should be given to poster presentations, as time for oral presentations may be limited. The final decision on oral presentations will be made by the program committee.
At least one author of each paper presented to the 11th ITRC must be a member in good standing of the International Turfgrass Society. When papers are accepted, there will be a sign-off on copyright at that time in order to list them with the Turfgrass Information File at Michigan State University.
