Technical Abstract: The 2013 Sorghum Improvement Conference of North America (SICNA) meeting was held at the International Cultural Center, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas, from August 28-30, 2013. The meeting attracted a large group of participants from a wide spectrum of the sorghum research community, representing both public and private sectors. It was a huge success in bridging the gaps between public and private sectors by building networking capacities and in fostering strong interest in high quality research in sorghum among participants. A highlight of the meeting was the presentation given by the keynote speaker, Dr. Daphne Preuss, Chief Executive Officer, Chromatin Inc., on championing sorghum as a resilient and smart crop for an ever-changing landscape of U.S. agriculture and on challenging participants to the continue to advocate for sorghum and sorghum research. You will find here the proceedings of the 2013 SICNA meeting which includes the abstracts of oral and poster presentations, plus access to select PowerPoint slides given by the invited speakers in each of the research disciplines covered in the meeting. You will find the agenda and list of sponsors in Section II.
