          1. One for the best oral presentation given by a junior scientist who is in the same time presenter and the first author of the submitted manuscript.
          2. One award for the best poster presented by a junior scientist who is first author of the work.

After abstract acceptance, all oral presenters, including invited and keynote speakers, must submit a manuscript for Acta Horticulturae – if this is not agreed to by the author(s), the work can be presented as a poster instead. Authors of posters are welcomed to submit their manuscript for Acta Horticulturae but posters cannot be published as such. Acta Horticulturae (ISSN 0567‐ 7572) is a peer reviewed series, mainly the proceedings of ISHS Symposia and the International Horticultural Congress. All Acta Horticulturae articles are available online at www.actahort.org
