Instructions for authors
 By the time the authors receive this Announcement, they should have all been informed of acceptance of their Abstracts and of the form of presentation of their contribution.
Oral and poster contributions will be published in the Proceedings Book. Detailed instructions for the preparation of the papers are given in the following sections.

General information
For publication in the Congress Proceedings, all papers must follow the instructions given below. They must be submitted in English, concisely written and limited to a maximum of 14 pages, double spaced except for the Abstract and Literature Cited which should be single spaced, using Times New Roman font with a 12 pitch character, a 'Portrait' page set up and a 'Justified' alignement including tables, figures and literature cited. When English is not their primary language, authors should obtain editorial assistance from their colleagues before submitting the Abstracts.

Editorial policy
As has been the case for previous ISC Congress Proceedings, manuscripts should conform to the editorial policies of the American Society for Horticultural Science. Authors of long or more highly technical papers are urged to follow the system of subheadings used in the J. Amer. Soc. Hort. Sci. The less formal style without subheadings, as used in HortScience, is more suitable for short or less highly technical papers.

Manuscript Format and Submission
1. Paper size: A4 (210 mm x 297 mm).
2. Write only on one side of the sheet. Number each page consecutively in the upper right-hand corner.
3. Below paragraph headings (Material and Methods, Results, etc.) leave 3 spaces.
4. Authors are kindly requested to bring the Congress secretariat, no later than 16 February 2004, their manuscripts on a 3 1/2" diskette or on a CD using MS-Word 2000, XP, Millennium or 1998 accompanied by 2 hard copies of their manuscripts.

Contens of the Manuscript
1. Citation - At the top left of page 1, write Proc. Int. Soc. Citriculture, .............2004. omitting only in this case the page numbers. At the top right of same page, put the paper number given by the Sientific Committee.
2. Title - The title should be a precise and concise description of the contents of the paper and no longer than three typeset lines. Serial titles indicating a series of related papers are discouraged.
3. Authors - The name(s) of the author(s) (without professional titles) should be included on one line, with a concise mailing address of the institution(s) and the country, below. Write first the initial(s) of the first name(s) and then the surname(s) of the author(s). The name of the institution(s), the adress and the country must be written in italics. When authors are from separate institutions indicate the corresponding institution below each authors (see sample below).
4. Footnotes. All the footnotes (except for those in tables) relative to the author's acknowledgements, any grant sources and current address of the author(s) must be given on the title page. Do not use any other footnotes in the text.
5. Additional index words. A list of additional index words, not used in the title, must be given immediately below the address of the author(s). It includes species (common and scientific names), chemicals, physiological and pathological terms.
6. Abstract. The abstract should be clear, concise, and not exceed 5% of the length of the paper. The word Abstract must be the paragraph heading. Abstracts should be structured in such a way to include: a short introduction, a clear presentation of the purpose of the paper, a brief description of methods and procedures, and a summary of results and conclusions.
7. Introduction and literature review. These can well be combined and do not need a separate heading. In the introduction, the purpose of the work should be clearly and immediately stated without indicating the heading. The literature review should be kept as brief as possible. A previous paper having an appropriate literature review may be cited. Cite the name(s) of the author(s) and the year of publication in the text; the placement of parentheses depends on sentences structure, e.g.: one author Smith (1989) or (Smith, 1989); two authors Smith and Jones (1989) or (Smith and Jones, 1989); three or more authors: Smith et al. (1989) or (Smith et al., 1989). If the author(s) and years are identical for more than one reference, insert lowercase letters (in alphabetical sequence) after the year. For example: (Smith, 1989a; Smith, 1989b). Use semi colons to separate multiple references. List the references in alphabetical, not chronological order. For example: (Deng 1998, Johnson et al. 1972; Smith and Johnson, 1988).
8. Headings. Center and capitalize the first letter of words in the main headings of the paper: Materiels and Methods; Results; Discussion; and Literature Cited. Place subheads flush left on a separate line and capitalize the first word. Place side heads at the begining of paragraphs, in italics, with the first letter of the first word capitalized, and terminate with periods.
9. Matherial and Methods. Describe the methods, equipment and materials in general terms, in order to indicate how the research was conducted and to permit replication of the work. Avoid repetition of details that are highly technical and have been published previously.
10. Results and Discussion. Present Results and Discussion, together or separately, in the briefest and clearest form, and avoid presenting the same data in both graph and table.
11. Literarture cited. All literature citations should be listed in a section at the end of the paper. List references in alphabetical order; multiple citations of the same author(s) should be listed chronologically. Each citation should state author(s), date, title, publication, volume and page numbers in that order. Examples of commonly used litterature citation are given below:

Capitalize only the first letter of the first word of each column and row heading. Photographs must be clear, glossy, black and white prints. They should be handled with care to preserve their quality and must be clipped to remove all extraneous matter, thus empahsing the subject to be illustrated. Type all captions on a separate page.
Size and boldness of lettering on figures should  be gauged to legibility in the final size.
15. Italics. Use italics (do not underline) in the byline address in side heads, and for the scientific names of plants, latin expressions (except for in situ, in vivo, and in vitro), and descriptive foreign phrases. The abbreviations for common latin terms are not italicized (e.g., i.e., et al., vs., etc.).

PRE-CONGRESS TOURS
 The pre-congress tours will go through the Gharb, the Tadla and the Haouz citrus regions. The Gharb region is located at " 150\1km\2North of Casablanca with some 20.000 ha of citrus. It has some of the oldest citrus groves with the largest blood orange area of the country. It is also known for its production of fodder and field crops, sugar cane, sugar beet, rice and oil seed plants. It is considered the wettest citrus producing region of Morocco and has a relatively high humidity throughout the year.
 The Tadla (Beni Mellal is the capital city of the region) is known for its excellent eating quality citrus and grows mainly oranges. It also produces fodder, sugar beet and various horticultural crops. It has a continental climate with hot dry summers and wet cold winters. It is located in the foothills of the High and Middle Atlas mountains.
 The Haouz region (Marrakech is the capital city) is the driest and hottest citrus growing region of Morocco located in the northern foothills of the High Atlas mountains. It is a deciduous fruit and olive producing area but also produces citrus, mainly oranges and other horticultural crops.
 Besides the technical visits, the tours will also include visits to the historic sites in Casablanca, Rabat, Meknès, Fès, Marrakech.

MID-CONGRESS TOURS: CITRUCULTURE IN THE SOUSS VALLEY

Program
Wednesday 11 February 2004

All tours depart the Congress center at 8.00 A.M. and conclude at the same point at the end of the day.
