First call for abstracts for the 9th ICCWS

We are now welcoming abstract submissions for the ICCWS taking place in Brighton, UK in 2016.

In May 2016, leading members of the international wine community will gather in Brighton to share ideas on vine growing, winemaking and the business of wine.

A very strong team of guest speakers has already been appointed, but the main programme will also feature presentations, workshops, tastings, posters, demonstrations, visits, debates, lightning talks, panel discussions and break-out sessions.

With just one year to go until the Symposium, we are welcoming the submission of abstracts on the following themes:


  • Soil management in vineyards
  • Achieving vine balance
  • Emerging vineyard pests and diseases
  • Developments in pest & disease management
  • Combatting Botrytis in the vineyard
