The Scientific Program Committee will feature 7 new ISHS symposia in addition to a few established symposia. The new symposia include our first International Symposium on Beverage Crops. We will have a diversity of symposia on Tropical Horticulture under the theme “Now is the Era for Tropical Horticulture”. In collaboration with the Global Horticulture Initiative, we are convening the first International Symposium on Poverty, Hidden Hunger and Horticulture.
