SYMPOSIUM THEME: GRAPEVINE INTERACTIONS

It is becoming increasingly clear that novel insights are gained when complex phenomena are considered holistically.  The Local- and Scientific Organising Committees have therefore chosen the theme of “Grapevine Interactions” for the forthcoming ISGPB2020.  The following topics, related to Grapevine (Eco)Physiology and Biotechnology, are provided to guide you in your submissions.  The submissions received will shape the sessions and the final scientific programme of the symposium.

TOPIC A: ENVIRONMENTAL INTERACTIONS

Grapevine in a dynamic ecosystem (climate change; soil health), includes biotic interactions (beneficial and detrimental organisms; genetic diversity of grapevine-associated organisms), and abiotic interactions (adaptive- and stress responses; water economy).

TOPIC B: GRAPEVINE DEVELOPMENT

How grapevine development (flower, berry, leaf, root) is impacted by environmental conditions (climate change/viticultural manipulation) and genetic variation (genotype).  Includes sub-topics on nutrients, hormones (molecular and metabolic regulatory networks), signals (calcium, oxidative status, small RNAs etc); yield and growth (source and sink dynamics) and (modelling the) impact of field management; root-scion interactions.

TOPIC C: FRUIT COMPOSITION

Primary- and secondary metabolism and the regulation and manipulation thereof, with links to fruit composition (throughout berry development, including post-harvest).

TOPIC D: TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES

Application and development of technological advances that support grapevine physiology and biotechnology studies, with focus in precision viticulture tools and technologies; phenotyping tools and advances, genomic and epigenetics advances and new breeding technologies.

TOPIC E: COMPUTATIONAL RESOURCES AND DATA INTEGRATION

Use of data science in basic and applied grapevine research; computational resources and tools for the grapevine community: new database and/or releases, community announcements (e.g. IGGP, the European COST Action INTEGRAPE).  Data integration in support of grapevine studies.

ISHS Young Minds Award

During each ISHS Symposium two Young Mind Awards for junior scientists will be given:

  • one award for the best oral presentation given by a junior scientist who is in the same time the presenter and first author of the submitted manuscript
  • one award for the best poster presented by a junior scientist who is first author of the work
