Abstract Submission

The framework of the Conference envisages plenary, sectional and poster presentations. Working languages of the Conference are Russian and English.

Each participant may submit no more than one abstract as the lead author and maximum one more abstract as a co-author.

The Organizing Committee of the Conference reserves the right to select abstracts among the submitted ones for publication. The abstracts will be published in the author’s version, so the authors are responsible for their credibility and contents. The book of abstracts  will be distributed to participants at the beginning of the Conference.

The published collection of abstracts will be included in the database of the Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI). The presentations that won positive opinions of peer reviewers will be published after the Conference in the next issue of Proceedings on Applied Botany, Genetics and Breeding listed among the reviewed scientific journals of the Higher Attestation Commission and included in the RSCI database.

To be accepted for publication, abstracts should be in line with the Conference topics and offer novel theoretical and practical research results. Abstracts out of line with the Conference topics or incorrectly formatted will not be published.

- Abstracts should be submitted electronically as an attached file in MS Word, in the *.rtf format.

- The file should be named by the author’s family name and initials (e.g., <Smith_SN.rtf>).
