THE 28TH INTERNATIONAL HORTICULTURAL CONGRESS, LISBON, 2010: REVIEW AND REFLECTIONS
A review of the impact and success of IHC2010 is based on an evaluation of various events in the programme, analysis of various trends that influenced the attendance and organization of scientific meetings, registration data, comments prepared by symposium and seminar conveners, an analysis of geographic origin of IHC participants, the number of abstracts of invited and oral presentations, and poster presented in the various colloquia, symposia, seminars and thematic sessions. Included is a summary of the scientific highlights and thematic clusters. This is followed by an analysis of specific congress events and presentation options such as e-posters, short-oral poster presentations, exhibition, brokerage event and post-congress technical tours. Very positive replies from an on-line inquiry of participants confirmed the high quality of the Congress. A review of the innovate aspects of the IHC2010 and some of its drawbacks will be helpful in the preparation of future IHCs.
