  • 1. Climate change impacts and adaption strategies
  • 2. Biofortification, neutraceuticals and phytochemicals
  • 3. Abiotic Stress: Adaptation and Management
  • 4. Genomics, Epigenomics and Regulation Biology

  • 14. Reproductive Biology

Presentation Format:

  • Oral Presentation
  • Poster Presentation

Presenters must be registered to the Congress to be eligible to present the study.

The abstract must be submitted in English, font times new roman with size 12. If accepted, the subsequent presentation would be in English only.


  • Each abstract should have a distinctive hypothesis or include a unique methodology that is clearly differentiated from the other abstracts submitted by a single research group.
  • An abstract that fails to meet these criteria will be considered a duplicate.
  • Duplicate abstracts from a single research group will be rejected.

Research Funding Source:

  • All abstracts must specify the funding source.
  • Compliance to this rule is a prerequisite for review. Abstracts of research funded by tobacco industry sources (whole or in part) will not be considered. If you have no specific funding source, please indicate "none."

It is required that all authors listed on the abstract have knowledge of the abstract submission.

Abstract Length:
The total word count of an abstract may not exceed 250 words (not including title, authors' information, institutions, tables, images and spaces between words).

You can include up to 1 table OR 1 image.

Corrections/ Withdrawals:

  • No corrections will be allowed after submitting the abstract. Please proof-read and edit your abstract carefully before submission.
  • If you wish to withdraw your submitted abstract after the abstract submission deadline, please email to Congress secretariat directly.

Abstract Review :

  • Abstracts must meet acceptable scientific and ethical standards, and contain data not previously published or presented.
  • You are allowed to state your presentation preference, however the Organising Committee will decide on the presentation format of all accepted abstracts (oral or poster).
  • Organising Committee reserves the final decision for all submitted abstracts.
  • All submissions shall go through an extensive peer review process through a preselected peer review committee.
  • Peer review shall be blinded with adequate safeguards regarding conflict of interest.

Abstract Presentations :

  • The person assigned as the Presenting Author of accepted abstracts will be expected to present the study. If the Presenting Author is not available, a co- author is allowed to present the paper (subject to the Organising Committee’s approval) after conference registration and prior notice six weeks before the conference.
  • Presenting author must be registered for the conference.
  • Authors scheduled for a poster presentation will be assigned poster board space for a specified period.
  • Oral presenters will present a short PowerPoint presentation, followed by discussion.
  • Those abstracts selected for short talk session will be given a short presentation.
  • Abstracts selected for presentation during the conference will be printed from the electronically submitted material. Every effort will be made to reproduce the content of the abstracts as submitted. The abstract review committee does not proof read or correct spelling, typographical, grammatical or scientific errors,nor changes can be made once abstract is submitted.
  • The abstracts selected for presentation should be represented on podium. Failure to do, without valid reason, will disqualify the presenter and group for subsequent two conferences.

E-Mail Notification :

  • Notification of abstract acceptance or rejection will be sent electronically to the Presenting Author after 7 Oct 2018 at the email address provided in the online submission. It is the responsibility of the Presenting Author to ensure that the email address is correct.
  • If you do not receive email notification by 30thSep 2018, please write to us at : ippccongress@gmail.com
