First Announcement

 

Date Palm International Symposium

 

Windhoek, Namibia
22 until 25 February 2000

 

Organized by:

- Date Production Support Programme (UTF/NAM/OO4/NAM)

 

Hosted by:

- The Republic of Namibia

 

Sponsored by:

- Republic of Namibia;

- Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Rural Development (MAWRD);

- Namibia Development Corporation (NDC);

- Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

 

Introduction

The Date Palm International Symposium is to provide a unique opportunity for date palm scientists, technicians and experts in the world to exchange their know how and experiences. Updated scientific information on different aspects of date palm production, protection and propagation will be presented and discussed.

Another aim of the symposium is to compare the experience of the Old World date producing countries of the Northern Hemisphere with the new emerging date growing countries in the Southern Hemisphere.

Organizing the symposium in Namibia will automatically put a focus on these new, emerging date growing countries. It should be noted that all previous International Date Palm Symposia have been organized in Middle Eastern countries.

FAO has been engaged since 1959 to support the development of the date palm production and protection in the world. Many projects and symposia were implemented/organized by the FAO in order to develop this important crop. The first FAO International Technical Meeting on Date Production and Processing was held in Tripoli-Libya (1959). The two other international Date Palm conferences were organized in Iraq 1965 & 1975).

Increasing communication and exchange of information and experiences are another aim of the symposium. At present, there is no international forum for date palm researchers, technicians and growers. The symposium intends to fill that gap by adding the establishment of the Date Palm Global Network to its agenda.

 

Content

The symposium's main topics can be summarized as follows:

1. Date production in the Old World versus the New World:

Can the Old World benefit from the developments in the emerging date producing countries and vice versa? In which fields can countries or regions benefit from each other?

2. Recent developments in date palm research and extension:

Based on the developments of the last 5 years, the following topics will be discussed:

- Date in vitro mass propagation and finger printing techniques;

- Date technical practices including irrigation and fertilization;

- Date Protection: the focus will mostly be on the Bayoud disease and the Red Palm Weevil;

- Date Harvesting, Packaging, Marketing and International Trade.

3. International Technical Cooperation on Date Palm:

Proposals prepared by the preparatory meeting of the working group will be put forward for discussion on the symposium.

Center main headings in full capitals and boldface. Begin subheadings and sub-sub headings at the left margin. Capitalize the first letter of the first word. Type subheadings in bold face. Italicize sub-subheadings.

Title: (no separate page) If possible, the title should be no longer than three lines. It should be set in all capital letters. It should describe precisely the contents of the paper, and contain terms useful in automated search of citations.

Authors: Place the authors' names two lines below the title (all characters lower case except for initials and first letter in names) and footnote with a superscript Arabic numbers. This footnote should give the title(s) of the author(s) at the institutions where the research was done, and the addresses of the institutions. Abbreviate as appropriate.

Abstract: Begin the abstract two lines below the authors' names. The abstract should be written as one paragraph and not to exceed 200 words. It should be an objective, informative essence of significant findings, including representative quantitative data as appropriate.

Additional Index Words: Place the underlined phrase "Additional Index Words." two lines below the abstract. Follow this with a list of terms not appearing in the title that would be useful in automated literature search.

Body of the Manuscript: The main sections of the manuscript should be in the order: INTRODUCTION, MATERIAL AND METHODS, RESULTS AND DISCUSSION, ACKNOWLEDGMENTS AND LITERATURE CITED. TABLES and FIGURES should be incorporated into the body of the paper.

Literature Cited: Literature citations are listed alphabetically by authors. References that are in press may be so designated in this section, provided they have been accepted and the journal name is included. Citations to recent literature generally are the most useful. Limit references to those that are essential. Refer to unpublished data, personal communications, and articles in preparation parenthetically in the text rather than in Literature Cited. Reference citations in the text by author and year, as in (Zaid, 1984).

Tables should be no more than 66 character spaces wide. If essential, tables up to 96 character spaces wide may be accepted for printing sideways on the page. All text within tables should be lower case except for the first letter of a word, phrase, or proper noun. The unit of measurement for a column should be placed at the top of the column below the solid line. Designate footnotes to tables with superscript lower-case letters, beginning with "a" and placed at the highest appropriate level. Level a space between values and letters that designate significant differences.

Figure Captions: Begin each caption at the left margin, underline the word "Figure" and its number and place a period after it. Begin the first sentence on the same line.

Figures: Figures (halftones, line drawings, and graphs) to be included with each copy of the paper should be clear, black and white glossy prints and trimmed of unessential portions. Computer-drawn graphs that will reproduce well are acceptable. Figures must be submitted in final publication size. Since the proceedings are camera-ready publications, size and boldness of lettering and symbols should be selected for legibility.
