The Scientific Committee of the 22nd GiESCO Meeting welcomes 5 types of communications:

1. Special Scientific Oral (SSO)

SSO corresponds to original research that authors would like both to present as a full oral presentation and to publish in a peer-reviewed journal.  For the 22nd GiESCO meeting, OENO one will edit a special series based on a selection of 22nd GiESCO SSO

At the meeting, time slot dedicated to SSO will be 12 min of presentation + 3 min of questions.

2. Scientific Oral (SO)

SO corresponds to original results that authors want to present at the meeting while keeping their data for further publication. 

Time slot dedicated to SO will be 10 min of presentation + 3 min of questions. 

3. Professional Day Oral (PDO)

PDO corresponds to professionally-oriented communications, I.e. dealing with extension or reviewing technological topics.  A Professional day will be organized during the meeting for PDO sessions; the Northeastern U.S. winegrape industry will be invited to attend. 

Time slot dedicated to PDO will be 12 min of presentation + 3 min of questions.

4. Flash Oral (FO)
