The ISHS Symposium call for papers is reopened

21/03/2020 - Press release - 2020 WPTC congress

Following the international outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19, the 16th ISHS Symposium on the Processing Tomato initially planned on 15-18 March 2020 in San Juan, Argentina alongside the 14th World Processing Tomato Congress has been rescheduled to 8-11 November 2020. This decision comes after much thoughtful consideration of the WPTC Board, the conveners and the Government of San Juan, as well as observing the directives of WHO and local health authorities. We are sure we are making the right decision so as not to jeopardize the health and safety of registrants, staff, and the public.

All the papers already accepted for oral or poster presentation will automatically be included in the new program, but the call for papers is being reopened in case researchers who were not able to attend in March can present their research or already registered speakers want to present new data. 

You can submit your abstracts at on the ISHS website until 31 August following the instructions included in the call for papers posted at on the symposium page

For more information, you can also contact the symposium secretary at 

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the coronavirus. We hope this epidemic will end soon.

The co-conveners and secretary.
