Call for papers

Contributions are invited for the 3rd Minia International Conference for Agriculture and Irrigation in the Nile Basin Countries from all members of the Agriculture and Irrigation Science Community

Oral presentations

We encourage presenters to take full advantage of visual aids through the use of computer monitor projection (e.g. Power Point presentations). Oral papers (20 minutes, discussion included) will be selected from submitted abstracts.


Poster presentations

The Congress Organizing Committee believes that Posters provide an excellent means for scientific communication and personal interaction. Posters will remain on display throughout the Congress and Poster Sessions (including lunch) will be held each day from noon to 2 pm. Presenters will be provided an area of approximately 1.2 m (height) by 1.0 m (width) to display their posters. Those who require the use of a table, or wish to give demonstrations or larger commercial exhibits must contact the organizing committee (ainbc@mu.edu.eg) in advance of the conference.
The number of posters that can be programmed is limited to approx. 200 if the number of submitted poster abstracts exceeds this limit, acceptance will be in order of entry.
To assist Scientific Program Committee, Registrants should identify the Symposium Topic closest to their Abstract at the time of its submission. All Abstracts will be accepted unless the Organizing Committee assesses their content to be unrelated to agriculture and irrigation sciences, or to be defamatory or otherwise inappropriate.
