On behalf of the organising committee and our sponsors it is a pleasure to invite you to the 8th International Symposium on Grapevine Physiology and Biotechnology and to the city of Adelaide.
The goal of this symposium is to showcase the latest research across the spectrum of disciplines from applied physiology through to cutting edge molecular biology with a focus on where new techniques in biotechnology are being used to advance our understanding of vine physiology. The main theme of the Symposium is
21st Century Grape Research: Challenges and Opportunities
Research articles and reviews from plenary and selected speakers will be published in a special issue of the Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research. The Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research has the highest impact factor for journals specialising in viticulture and oenology.
The symposium will be hosted at the National Wine Centre of Australia in the centre of the city of Adelaide and within an hour drive of the premium wine regions of the Barossa and McLaren Vale. Delegates travelling to Australia are encouraged to make the most of their visit and partake in the abundant fine food and wine on offer not only in South Australia but also in other regions and states.
In particular we are pleased to advise that a pre-Symposium tour of South Eastern Australia's wine regions between Melbourne and Adelaide is being organized to provide an opportunity for delegates to sample the epicurean delights of this corner of Australia.
