The XVII International Botrytis Symposium will be organized by the Laboratorio de Fitopatología Frutal y Molecular del Departamento de Sanidad Vegetal de la Facultad de Ciencias Agronómicas de la Universidad de Chile, Santiago, Chile.
The Symposium will be held in Hotel Santa Cruz Plaza (Symposium Headquarter) from 23rdto 28thOctober 2016, in Santa Cruz, a typical town located in the Colchagua Valley, 190 km (120 mi) south of Santiago, considered the Chile’s agriculture heartland and one of best known wine regions.
The Symposium, held every three years, provides a very good opportunity to receive up-to-date information on the problematic of Botrytis and its management in the main crops affected by this pathogen worldwide. The main aspects involved will be: biology, identification, genetics, ecology and epidemiology, omics, post-genomics, host pathogen interactions, cultural, chemical and biological control, and post-harvest management. A general overview of the last results obtained on these aspects of Botrytis will be presented by different lecturers.
The Scientific Committee has been constituted by: Odile Carisse (Canada), Isidro G. Collado (Spain), Frances M. Dewey (Union Kingdom), Yigal Elad (Israel), Francesco Faretra (Italy), Marc Fermaud (France), Sabine Fillinger (France), Matthias Hahn (Germany), Bernardo Latorre (Chile), Themis Michailides (USA), Gastón Muñoz (Chile), Stefania Pollastro (Italy), Ann Powell (USA), Gianfranco Romanazzi (Italy), Gabriel Scalliet (Switzerland), Bettina Tudzynski (Germany), Paul Tudzynski (Germany), Jan A.L. van Kan (The Netherlands), Melanie Vivier (South Africa), Anne-Sophie Walker (France), Marcela Esterio (Chile) and Jaime Auger (Chile).
The symposium scientific program will consist in oral and/or poster presentations and as in the past symposiums, the program will promote scientific, social and cultural interaction in a relaxed and congenial atmosphere. We encourage to take some days off after the symposium to discover the treasures of Colchagua Valley, enjoy its wines and the Chilean hospitality, including dazzling sights of Chilean nature.
