January 26, 2016 – From Gina Fernandez

Hello XI Rubus Ribes attendees!

It’s hard to believe that it was so hot when we saw each other at the symposium. North Carolina is digging out of an ice/snow storm and it has been very cold.

I wanted to update you on the status of the Acta Hort Proceedings. In late October 2015, Kim Hummer, I and the editorial team finished up the final reviews. I sent the 83 manuscripts (643 pages) off to Belgium via Fed Ex and a copy was sent electronically. We ordered 183 copies, so each of you that paid for an Acta should get a hard copy sent to you. Maria Testor received the manuscripts on Nov 9, 2015. They operate on a FIFO (first in first out) protocol. We have 16 Actas ahead of us in the queue. I’m not sure how long each one takes. But I am hopeful that you will get your copy in 2016.

You can monitor progress at http://www.ishs.org/symposium/361. Look under the book status section.
