ABSTRACT AND MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION

The Scientific Committee invites authors to submit abstracts for selection and inclusion in the Scientific program. Please find below instructions for the layout and submission of abstracts.

GUIDELINES AND RULES

All abstracts and manuscripts must be submitted through ROSA (Responsive Online System for Acta Horticulturae submission and review): www.actahort.org

Acta Horticulturae guidelines:

www.ishs.org

  • Only abstracts submitted in English will be reviewed
  • Abstracts must not exceed 300 words
  • Abstracts must not contain tables, pictures or graphs
  • All abbreviations must be spelled out on first use
  • Abstracts should be thoroughly checked for spelling and grammar
  • An abstract submission charge is due upon submission of an abstract and applies to the presenting author only. For ISHS Individual members (https://www.ishs.org/members), the abstract submission charge is fully waived.
Those who do not hold a user account with ISHS yet:

create an ISHS user account first at www.actahort.org

After payment and activation of your user account, you can start your abstract submission.

Abstracts must always be submitted by the presenting author, using their own personal ISHS user account. Submitting an abstract on behalf of/or using the ISHS user account of another author is strictly not permitted.

All oral presenters, including invited and keynote speakers, must submit a manuscript for Acta Horticulturae according to the Acta Horticulturae guidelines (www.ishs.org) by 17 March 2025. Oral presenters who fail to submit a manuscript for publication in Acta Horticulturae may be refused the floor to present their oral presentation. Authors of posters are strongly encouraged to prepare and submit a manuscript for Acta Horticulturae.

Presenting authors of abstracts accepted for presentation (both oral/poster) must register for the symposium by 17 February 2025. Failing to register for the symposium will result in your abstract being withdrawn from the symposium program and your manuscript being withdrawn from the Acta Horticulturae symposium proceedings.

Failing to present (oral/poster) at the symposium will result in your manuscript being withdrawn from the Acta Horticulturae symposium proceedings.

ISHS Young Minds Awards

During each ISHS Symposium two Young Minds Awards for junior scientists will be given:

  • one award for the best oral presentation given by a junior scientist who is in the same time the presenter and first author of the submitted manuscript
  • one award for the best poster presented by a junior scientist who is first author of the work
