The goal of this Symposium is to provide means and ways for scientists, engineers, researchers, students, growers, consultants, government employees, and policy makers to exchange ideas and provide an opportunity for networking in the fields related to
viticulture. Another goal is to provide cutting edge information on the global technology that is being developed or studied. It is expected that the meeting foster cooperation between research institutions and universities.
This Symposium aims to bring together once more the experience of scientists from different disciplines of vine & wine (physiology, breeding, producing, production, processing, pathology, etc..) whose research focuses on grapevine and product quality
and safety and collate a more comprehensive, updated and detailed knowledge in this important sector. Topics will include rootstocks, varieties, breeding, biotic and abiotic stress interactions with natural factors and agronomic practices, management
systems, quality, and safety.
The symposium will be hosted in Istanbul, a city located in Europe and Asia continents and links them through the Bosphorus. It is close to Bursa one of the most important late table grape growing regions, and Tekirdağ, one of the most important viti-viniculture
regions of Turkey, famous for the cultivation of traditional autochthonous varieties, like Merlot, Yapıncak and new varieties Trakya İlkeren, Tekirdağ Sultani as well as internationally known varieties.
Two tours will be organized to Cappadocia (Central Anatolia) for wine-grape production and to İzmir-Manisa (Western Turkey) for sun-drying of grapes to provide an opportunity for delegates to learn more about the Turkish grape production and processing.
We welcome researchers, students, viticulturists and professionals in the grapevine/wine industry to attend the symposium and exchange their studies and experiences.
