SYMPOSIUM THEME: GRAPEVINE INTERACTIONS

It is becoming increasingly clear that novel insights are gained when complex phenomena are considered holistically. The Local- and Scientific Organising Committees have therefore chosen the theme of “Grapevine Interactions” for the forthcoming ISGPB2021. The following topics, related to Grapevine (Eco)Physiology and Biotechnology, are provided to guide you in your submissions. The submissions received will shape the sessions and the final scientific programme of the symposium.

TOPIC A: ENVIRONMENTAL INTERACTIONS

This topic relates to Grapevine in a dynamic ecosystem which can include aspects of climate change; soil health; biotic interactions and/or abiotic interactions.

  • In terms of the biotic interactions, submissions are welcomed on beneficial and detrimental grapevine-associated organisms and may include the genetic diversity of these organisms if it relates to the grapevine interactions.
  • In terms of abiotic interactions, submissions on adaptive- and stress responses are welcomed, as well as contributions on the water economy of grapevines.

TOPIC B: GRAPEVINE DEVELOPMENT

This topic relates to how grapevine development (flower, berry, leaf, root) is impacted by environmental conditions (climate change/viticultural manipulation) and genetic variation (genotype). It could include sub-topics on nutrients, hormones (molecular and metabolic regulatory networks), signals (calcium, oxidative status, small RNAs etc); yield and growth (source and sink dynamics) and (modelling the) impact of field management; as well as root-scion interactions.

TOPIC C: FRUIT COMPOSITION

This topic relates to Primary- and secondary metabolism and the regulation and manipulation thereof, with links to fruit composition (throughout berry development, and including the post-harvest period).

TOPIC D: COMPUTATIONAL RESOURCES AND DATA INTEGRATION

This topic provides scope to bring awareness of the use of data science in basic and applied grapevine research, as well as the status and availability of computational resources and tools for the grapevine community. These could include new databases and/or genome/annotation releases, community announcements (e.g. IGGP, the European COST Action INTEGRAPE) and progress made with tools and technologies to perform data integration in support of grapevine studies.

TOPIC E: TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES

This topic relates to the application and development of technological advances that support grapevine physiology and biotechnology studies, with a focus on precision viticulture tools and technologies; phenotyping tools and advances, genomic and epigenetics advances and new breeding technologies in the scope of the symposium theme of Grapevine Interactions.

We are looking forward to your contributions.

INFORMATION TO ALL PRESENTING AUTHORS

POSTER PRESENTATION INSTRUCTIONS

Authors of posters have a choice whether they want to submit a full-text article for publication in the proceeding of the symposium. This is not compulsory for authors of posters.

  • Authors selected for a poster must provide their presentation in pdf format
  • Authors have  the option to provide an additional file with video/voiceover narration, a video file in .MP4 or .MOV format (no longer than 3 minutes).
  • To create the narrated power point slide in a suitable video file format follow the instructions found at the following link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8JV3w4TOVw&t

Poster files should then be uploaded to the correct link sent to each presenter by email.
The file uploaded to Dropbox must be labelled as follows:  Last name, initial and full title of presentation e.g.  Smith, D  How to upload a presentation

Deadline to upload the presentation on Dropbox:  11 October

FLASH PRESENTATION INSTRUCTION

Authors of poster presentations who have been selected as flash presenters  must please note what they must also provide:

Format of the presentation:
Video file in MP4 or MOV format no longer than 5 minutes.
Please view the link for guidance on how to record your presentation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8JV3w4TOVw&t

The flash presentation  should then be uploaded to the correct link sent to each presenter by email. (important to note this is a different link to the poster link)
The file uploaded to Dropbox must be labelled as follows:  Last name, initial and full title of presentation e.g.  Smith, D  How to upload a presentation

Deadline to upload the presentation on Dropbox:  11 October

Flash presenters will be sending two files
1.)  first file following the poster instructions above
2.) second file following the flash presentation instructions

PRE RECORDED AND LIVE PRESENTATIONS

Instructions for pre-recorded and live presentations were emailed directly to each presenter.  Please contact the organizers at deidre@iafrica.com should you require more information and assistance.

The link for the rehearsals  (live presentations only) and link  to all presenters for the symposium, will be emailed to the presenters shortly.

IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION TO ALL PRESENTING AUTHORS

The ISHS rules:

  • All verbal and poster symposium presentations are eligible for publication in the proceedings if a suitable manuscript is prepared and submitted on time to the Editorial Board.
  • Invited and keynote speakers must submit a manuscript for Acta.
  • Authors of oral presentations must submit a manuscript for Acta. If this is not agreed to by the author(s), the work should be presented as a poster.
  • Authors of posters are welcomed to submit their manuscript for Acta Horticulturae but posters cannot be published as such.
