Dear colleagues,  
 
 
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.
