IHC – International Horticultural Congress 2018

XXX. International Horticultural Congress (IHC 2018) will be held between 12 and 16 August 2018 in Istanbul.
IHC2018 will provide an excellent platform for scientists, technicians, students, consultants, engineers, extension agents, growers, industry, trade and consumer organizations, policymakers and other professionals having an interest in horticulture. The motto of IHC2018 is decided as ‘Bridging the World through Horticulture’. It is heavily focused on research and innovation and will have training components related to various fields of Horticulture.
IHC2018 will have a rich scientific program to allow a diffuse interaction among scientists as well as institutions. The symposia will have different formats tailored according to the topic. Now it is the time to announce the Symposia to be held under the IHC2018 which is the backbone of the Congress. Additionally, there will be Colloqia and Workshops, ad hoc training sessions and technical tours. Technical tours will be accompanied by Turkish experts and include historical and cultural components.
IHC2018 Steering Committee is composed of 5 members: President, Scientific Committee Chair, Sponsorship Committee Chair, DC Agricultural Research and Policies as Representative of MFAL and Representative Turkish Society For Horticultural Science.
During the 30th International Horticultural Congress (IHC2018) to be held in Istanbul, Turkey between 12 and 16, August 2018, workshops will be organized after the symposia sessions. Workshops are proposed by the conveners with various objectives as:
• establishing an international expert group,
• sharing experiences and skills,
• carrying out in depth discussions on a specific topic,
• extending the network and/or
• seeking cooperation opportunities
The format of each Workshop may be different based upon the initial objective. You can register to any workshop that may be of interest to you. The output of the workshop(s) may be compiled but will not lead to a Congress proceeding, ‘ActaHorticulturae’. A workshop, if linked to a specific symposium, will be scheduled to allow participation to both activities. However, a workshop may be completely independent from any IHC2018 symposium.
