NEWSLETTER #3 - June 2010



Earlybird registration is now over and around 300 of you could benefit from it.

Authors were asked to provide an "Enjoy registration number". This number appears on the invoice sent after receipt of payment by Enjoy registration service. This was the way for us to cross-check registered participants list and authors list. But as a large amount of registrations were made lately, many invoices have not been sent yet. Therefore we had to find out another way to check the lists so that you can forget about it as long as you have duly registered. Nonetheless, if you are a co-author, or if you intend to present a poster or a paper for a colleague, please let us know by email to, it will help us a lot to identify your abstract for publishing in the proceedings.

If you intend to register to the Thursday Symposium ONLY at Montpellier SupAgro Campus, please fill out the specific registration form to be returned to the Association Française d'Agronomie before July 20th.


Detailed programme with the oral contributions of all sessions has been updated. Please do not hesitate to contact us for modifications or questions. As you can see it is very attractive with diversified and high quality contributions from all around the world. The Scientific Committee has selected 147 oral contributions from 31 different countries (11 from Europe, USA, Australia, Africa, South and Central America) among the 511 papers submitted which represents 29 %.

Posters will be displayed during three days, with a specific poster session on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and the best poster of each session will be highlighted by the chair of each session. There are still some oral presentations to be selected from these posters for the round tables on the Monday sessions (the Scientific Committee will make the selection with chairs and key notes of these sessions) and for the ECAS workshop organized on Friday (this will be done on the basis of the registrations on July 15th and invitations will be sent directly by John Ingram).

Speakers who still have not registered by now are invited to do it as soon as possible for finalizing the programme.

The proceedings will be sent to printer by mid July. It will concern the papers having at least one author registered at this date. As some of you have received the return from reviewers recently, the deadline for sending the revised version of your paperfinal abstracts to is extended to July 8th.
