The Third International Pawpaw Conference will be held September 9-10th, 2011, in Frankfort, Kentucky. The Conference will be sponsored by Kentucky State University, the Ohio Pawpaw Growers Association and the PawPaw Foundation. The Conference will feature “Pawpaws Around the World” (a discussion of national and international pawpaw variety trials), pawpaw processing and marketing advances, as well as talks and poster sessions about pawpaw research, extension, and entrepreneurial activities. The Conference will include a “Pawpaw Culinary Extravaganza” featuring pawpaw menu items from chefs, as well as other unique Kentucky cuisine. This Conference will be a unique experience for scientists, nurserymen, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts to share information about the production and uses of pawpaw. In addition to presentations on pawpaw, the Conference will also offer an opportunity to taste pawpaw fruit and tour the Kentucky State University pawpaw orchards. The Conference will have a number of invited speakers (such as Neal Peterson, Ron Powell, Kirk Pomper, Sheri Crabtree, Jeremy Lowe); however, there will also be a poster session and show-and-tell session about pawpaw for participants. The Conference will be limited to 180 attendees. The deadline for pre-registration will be August 1, 2011.
(The registration fee covers: abstract book, conference proceedings, conference gift items, lunches and dinners including the Pawpaw Extravaganza Dinner, on September 9 and 10, 2011.)
