The X International Symposium on Artichoke, Cardoon and their Wild Relatives will be held from 12 to 15 March 2019 in Orihuela, Alicante, Spain under the aegis of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS). I am pleasured to invite you to joint us and present your work and ideas to promote research and other activities related to technologies, management tools, plant production and storage conditions aimed to increase the widespread consumption of this crop.
This international symposium will be an excellent opportunity to bring together researchers, academics, technicians, and other experts from public and private sectors involved in the field of artichoke, cardoon and their wild relatives. The symposium will be comprised of plenary sessions and poster display sessions, offering a high-quality interesting program with renowned keynote speakers, as well as an attractive social program.
The venue of the Symposium will be in the city of Orihuela, capital of the region of Vega Baja, which represents the range of own colours of the Spanish Mediterranean. Orihuela is the birthplace of the poet Miguel Hernandez, and one of the main tourist destinations of Valencia.
In the program we also have the opportunity to visit artichoke fields with breeding programs as well as processing industry.
We are looking forward to welcome you to Orihuela, Alicante, Spain.
