Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative
Cucurbitaceae '98 will be
held from 30 November through 4 December 1998 at the Asilomar
Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California, USA. Cucurbitaceae
'98 will be convened by the American
Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS), the United
States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Cucurbit
Genetics Cooperative (CGC) and The
Cucurbit Network (TCN). All persons engaged or interested
in collection, preservation, characterization, evaluation, and
enhancement of cucurbit germplasm research are invited to participate
in this symposium. The symposium will address six broad
subject areas: germplasm resources, genetics, breeding, pathology,
entomology, and production.
Preliminary Registration Form
For a preliminary registration form, contact Jim D. McCreight, Chair (USDA-ARS,
1636 E. Alisal, Salinas, California 93905 USA. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Including tentative titles on your preliminary registration form will aid
program development. Titles may be submitted up to the deadline for manuscript
submission (see below).
Research Papers for Presentation or Posters
Authors of some contributed papers for presentation may be asked to present
them as posters. Both types will be included in the proceedings.
Submit complete manuscripts to the Chair of the Scientific Committee on or
before June 1 in hardcopy and diskette forms. Diskettes can be in any standard
word processing software (MSDOS, Windows, Macintosh). Those unable to submit
a manuscript on diskette should send two high-quality hardcopies.
All manuscripts will be reviewed for scientific merit by the Scientific Committee.
Authors may be asked to make revisions. Those found unacceptable after revision
may be declined for presentation or inclusion in the proceedings.
Follow the usual format for scientific papers (Abstract, Introduction, Material
and Methods, Results, Discussion, Literature Cited, Tables, Figures). The
details of formatting are not critical. The Publishing staff of ASHS will
take care of these details. Although there is not a specific length limit,
authors may be asked to shorten manuscripts judged by the Scientific Committee
to be excessive in length. Include photo-ready copies of figures or illustrations
that cannot be easily reproduced.
