Guidelines for the submission of an abstract:
Guidelines for manuscript submission:
All speakers must submit full manuscripts at the conference for peer-review by the Symposium Scientific Committee. Reviewed manuscripts will be published post- conference by the ISHS in a volume of Acta Horticulturae. For publication guidelines in Acta Horticulturae, please follow the Authors Instructions available at http://www.ishs.org/authors and, if additional information is required, please contact us immediately. Each participant paying the registration fee (except guests and students) will receive a copy of the Acta Horticulturae, the Symposium Proceedings.
Guidelines for oral presentations:
All oral presentations should use PowerPoint. No overhead projector or slide projector will be available. Presentations will be accepted only through electronic files in PowerPoint2000 or later versions of the software. Since unexpected errors may occur during the final presentation, a computer support center will be provided at the beginning of the presentation day to check the compatibility.
Guidelines for poster presentations:
There is no limit to the number of posters that an author can present. Posters will have a maximum size of about 100 cm x 120 cm (40 inches x 48 inches), portrait. It is recommended to use one complete sheet, rather than small multiple sheets for creation in situ. At the top of the poster, include the title, author name(s) and affiliations (organization, city, country). We suggest the poster to have title letters at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) high. Lettering for the author’s information (name and affiliations) may be smaller (1.25 cm or 0.5 inch). Inclusion of a recent photograph of the presenting author will help participants to identify the person to discuss their interests. The smallest lettering on the poster should be no less than 10 mm (0.4 inch) high. Illustrations should be visible from a 1 m (3 feet) viewing distance. We suggest authors bringing at least 25 small (regular-size paper) copies of the poster to hand out to interested participants. Specific instructions for poster set-up will be given in due time.
