INVITAITON

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.

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!

ABOUT YANCHENG CITY

Yancheng is located in the eastern coastal area of China. It has the largest mudflat wetland on the west coast of the Pacific Ocean and the largest plain forest park on the coast of China. Yancheng has a cultural heritage of over 2000 years and is the only city in China named after "salt". Today, Yancheng has four leading industries: automobiles, steel, new energy, and electronic information. The three-dimensional transportation network has added wings to Yancheng's economic development. The rapid development of the economy has brought prosperity to the people here, and the happiness index of people living and working in peace has been increasing year by year. Yancheng has superior water and land resources, and its air quality has been among the top in various cities in China for many years. Good water, land, and air provide farmers here with innate advantages in growing good strawberries.

After more than 20 years of development, the strawberry industry in Yancheng has formed a complete industrial chain. Yancheng's strawberry technology advantages are outstanding, and a number of high-tech achievements such as the agricultural Internet of Things have been put into use. Farmers who plant strawberries are enjoying the fruits of technological progress. Strawberry industry is an epitome and symbolic symbol of "modern agriculture" in Yancheng. Through the organic combination of strawberry industry and rural space, the integration of local farmers increasing income through nearby agricultural production, continuously improving the living environment of farmers, creating agricultural tourism scenes, and natural ecological environment protection has been realized, and a neew road has been explored for the construction of beautiful countryside.

In 2019, the planting area of strawberries in China had reached 126000 hectares, with a yield of over 3.222 million tons, ranking first in the world in terms of planting area and yield. The booming strawberry industry is helping more and more Chinese farmers realize their vision of a better life. There are 25 species of Fragaria, and 14 species have been found to be naturally distributed in China. The Strawberry Branch of the Chinese Horticultural Society has organized experts to visit various parts of China to investigate the wild strawberry resources. Since the Ministry of Agriculture of the People's Republic of China listed strawberries in the protection list in 2005, 91 varieties from the United States, Italy, Japan, Spain, South Korea and other countries have applied for protection, the United States Driscolls company, California Larsen Canyon Nursery Company and Italy, Japan, Spain and other countries have come to China to open up new development space.

Yancheng, China is looking forward to hosting the 10th World Strawberry Congress. The Yancheng government and people will provide sufficient support to this congress with the greatest enthusiasm, allowing guests from all sides to fully feel the "charm of Yancheng". We share the same dream, and the development of the strawberry industry helps more people realize the vision of a better life. Let's work together to explore the infinite possibilities of the future. Let's work together for a win-win situation and strive to promote the continuous progress of the global strawberry industry. Yancheng, China looks forward to your arrival! One Strawberry, One World
