Are you carrying out biodynamic-related research as part of your farming or gardening work or as an academic? 

Do you have research observations, results, ideas, questions or innovations to share?

This is an open invitation for Research Poster proposals for the 2018 Biodynamic Conference in Portland. Space will be available to display the posters throughout the conference. During a Research Poster session authors will stand beside their posters to field questions from browsing conference participants, share about their projects and have an opportunity to network in an informal setting.

Who can submit

People from all backgrounds are invited to submit poster proposals – farmers, gardeners, forest caretakers, students, farm and NABDAP apprentices, and academic/university researchers.


Topics can include any research related to biodynamics that you have conducted or are in the process of conducting, following any relevant method or approach (e.g., natural scientific, spiritual scientific, Goethean, social scientific, artistic). The research could be experimental or non-experimental, quantitative, qualitative, or both. It could be carried out by a farmer/gardener as part of their working observations and/or in the context of a formal academic study.

Poster Style and Format

All styles of posters are welcome. The main goal is to effectively communicate your research and serve as a visual aid that sparks conversation. More emphasis on pictures or graphics than text is recommended. Details on poster size and format to be announced.

How to Submit

Proposals will be accepted until Friday, March 23. We will inform you of a decision by the end of April 2018.
