16th ISHS Symposium On The Processing Tomato AND 14th World Processing Tomato Congress
Feb 26, 2019

The 16th ISHS Symposium on the Processing Tomato will be held in San Juan City, Argentina, on 15-19 March 2020, in parallel with the 14th World Processing Tomato Congress, bringing together academics, researchers and students with growers, processors and business professionals working in the processing tomato industry. This unique setup of an industry congress with a scientific symposium has been a major success story ever since the first world processing tomato congress in Avignon (France) in 1989 and the creation of WPTC in 1998 at Pamplona (Spain). 


The organizing committee, lead by Cosme Argerich (INTA La Consulta, Argentina) and Luca Sandei (SSICA, Italy),  is inviting researchers to submit their proposals for scientific communications during the symposium which will address key scientific questions and issues related to the entire industry, from field (production for industrial purposes, applied ecophysiology, agronomy, biotic and abiotic stress resistance, genetics applied to industrial food system) to fork (organoleptic and nutritional food quality, smart quality control processes, healthy food, high quality cultivars).
