Abstract Submission

ISPAMED invites you to submit an abstract to the International Conference Innovations for Sustainable Crop Production in the Mediterranean Region.

Our esteemed abstract chairs and reviewers will evaluate the best abstracts that will be considered as oral abstracts. All abstracts selected for presentation will be physically presented in Palermo.

After the conference, all participants will be encouraged to submit a full paper to one Dedicated Special Issue in Agronomy (Impact Factor: 3.949)
