The IX International Fig Symposium was held at the Conference hall of the National Center for Scientific research (CNRS) in Montpellier, France from June 15-18. The symposium brought together researchers on figs worldwide. Six young research fellows of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) participated in the meeting and presented their research work. Their presentations were as following:
