Dear colleagues,

The global crisis caused by the COVID-19 virus is affecting all aspects of our lives. The Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops in Novi Sad and the International Sunflower Association, as organizers of the 20th International Sunflower Conference in Novi Sad, have been closely monitoring the situation since the beginning of the crisis.

Health, safety and security of all conference participants, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and others are certainly more important than anything else.

Since further development of the situation cannot be predicted, we have decided together with ISA board (International Sunflower Association) to postpone the conference for the next year. The conference is scheduled for the new period – June 20-23, 2022. The conference will be held at the same place – Master Center in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Already paid registration fees and hotel reservations will remain valid, and all individual requests related to this issue will be processed by the Panacomp agency. We believe that sponsors and exhibitors will agree to continue to support the conference. The conference program and speakers will remain the same, with possible minor changes. Already received abstracts and full papers are still valid, and the possibility of replacement will be offered.

We hope and believe that most registered participants, sponsors and exhibitors will be able to adjust to the new conference date.

We invite all interested parties to continue with the submission of abstracts and full papers. The conference website remains active and all information about the conference will be published there.

We wish you all good health and that you go through this difficult period as easily as possible.

See you next year in Novi Sad!

ISC2020 Organisation Board

June 20 to 23 2022, in Novi Sad, Serbia
