Abstracts should not exceed 300 words and be based on original work. Should give full information on the objective, materials and methods and major results obtained. English is the official language of the Symposium. So, only abstracts written in English will be accepted for review. Abstracts must NOT contain tables, pictures or diagrams. All abbreviations must be spelled out on first use. Abstracts should be thoroughly checked for spelling (English) and grammar.
Abstracts will be submitted through ROSA – Responsive Online System for Acta Horticulturae. To submit an abstract, it is mandatory to have a valid ISHS user account. More info on ISHS membership can be found at: https://www.ishs.org/members
Submission as first author is strictly limited to a maximum of two presentations per registered person (either oral or poster). However, a person attending to the Symposium may coauthor other presentations as far as the first author is registered too. Abstracts submitted by June 30th 2021 will be considered for evaluation. Authors will be notified of provisional acceptance of abstracts by July 15th 2021 and informed about the form of presentation as oral or poster. If abstracts require modifications, authors must submit the modified abstract by July 31st 2021.
