X International Strawberry Symposium - 2ndCircular + Call for Abstracts

X International Strawberry Symposium

Yancheng city, Jiangsu Province (China), March 16-21, 2025


We are pleased to announce the X International Strawberry Symposium (X ISS), which will be held in Yancheng city, China, from March 16-21, 2025, under the aegis of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) Division Vine and Berry Fruits and Working Group Strawberry Culture and Management. Yancheng is a well-known strawberry growing area and production base in China.

The theme of the symposium is Quality, Germplasm, Brand, Innovation, which highlights mankind's goal for crop products. The symposium, especially its invited lectures and oral presentations, is aimed at providing an effective way to achieve this goal. Our slogan is Strawberry from coast to plateau, since in China the strawberry growing field covers a wide range of altitudes, from -100 meters to over 3900 meters.

The X ISS will provide an international meeting point for researchers, academics, technicians, students, sales representatives and other professionals from the sector, thus widening professional contact and creating new opportunities, including establishing new collaborations. The scientific program will consist of invited lectures, oral presentations and posters, covering all aspects of strawberry science and management. The information on keynote speakers is already online, and more keynote speakers will be invited. Besides, the academic committee will also select 10-20 "selected reports on special topics" speakers, for whom the registration fee will be waived, and the transportation and accommodation fee in China will be covered by the symposium, so please submit the abstracts on time to make sure the committees have enough time for evaluation of the reports. All the participants interested in presenting are invited to submit an abstract online through ROSA (https://www.actahort.org/members/symposiar?nr=744). Deadline for abstract submission is August 1, 2024, and deadline for full text submission is March 1, 2025.

Besides invited lectures, oral presentations in different sessions and technical visits, the X ISS will also hold exhibitions on strawberry production and research, including an exhibition of strawberry production equipment and technology from major domestic and international strawberry producers. Since China has the largest area of strawberry production, more than a thousand industry practitioners are expected to participate in related activities and we believe its a good opportunity for international business promotion. More details about sponsorship and exhibition can be found on the symposium website. You can also enjoy social activities of different variety.

The official X ISS website is available at https://www.ishs.org/symposium/744. All information on abstract and full paper submission, symposium program, registration, hotel bookings and other related information can be easily found by visiting the symposium website. All up-to-date information about the symposium will also be shown here.

The International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) and the Organizing Committee of the X International Strawberry Symposium (X ISS) have the honor and privilege of inviting you to attend this most important event in the strawberry circle on the strawberry research and production!
