The ASVO is pleased to announce that five students have been successful is gaining scholarships to attend the IX International Symposium on Grapevine Physiology and Biotechnology (Grapevine Chile 2013) in La Serena, Chile.
Marcos Bonada and Sally Foletta will both make oral presentations at the symposium, while Johannes Scharwies, Darren Wong and David Contreras Pezoa will make poster presentations. These awards have been made available as part of the successful XIII ISGPB that was held in Adelaide in 2008. The ASVO acted as secretariat for this symposium and published the conference proceedings as a special issue if the Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research. We wish these students well in their travels to Chile in April 2013.
