Guidelines for Abstract submission

Please set up your abstracts according to the given format at this website. You are also expected to send a brief biography together with the Abstract. If you have any technical issue or you need any further assistance in submitting your abstract, please contact:


(Introduction) Recent research suggests that chemicals sent from roots in the transpiration stream could control leaf expansion, and that xylem sap from plants in dry and saline soil contain increased amounts of growth inhibitor, or decreased amounts of growth promoter. (Method) In order to test these possibilities, a bioassay that could detect the presence of growth regulators in xylem sap was developed using whole shoots of wheat and barley seedlings. (Result) The bioassay showed that xylem sap collected from intact, transpiring plants in a drying soil contained a strong growth inhibitor. (Result/Discussion) The inhibitory substance was not abscisic acid: while the concentration of abscisic acid in the sap rose as the soil dried, the highest concentration found, 4 × 10-8 M, was too low to inhibit leaf expansion. The identity of the new inhibitor is unknown.

Guidelines for Poster Presentation

Poster presentations are an excellent mechanism to facilitate the rapid communication of scientific ideas. Poster presentations should visually guide viewers through the basics of the study displayed on the poster board while the presenter focuses on explanation and clarification of the key elements of the work and answers viewer questions. The poster presentation format is less formal and more interactive than an oral presentation.Though posters must be displayed for the entire day, poster presenters are only required to be present at their poster board during the assigned time of their poster presentation.

During the sessions, presenters are expected to stand by their poster/exhibition in order to discuss their research/design project with the viewers. The poster presentations will be on continuous display throughout the conference

Poster Session and Schedule
Poster sessions will take place at various times throughout each day. All poster sessions will take place at the main hall. Posters are displayed for the entire day, although presenters are only required to be present at their board during their assigned presentation time.

Poster size: The poster should not exceed A0 format (841mm wide x 1189 mm deep or  33.11 inches wide x 46.81 inches deep) in portrait (vertical) layout only

Authors are encouraged to:
Include a photo of themselves on the poster so that they can be easily identified by the poster viewers.
Print several copies of their posters in A4 format and hang these up in an envelope on their designated poster board. This will make communication and future collaborations easier and more visible.
