The JKI, Institute for Grapevine Breeding Geilweilerhof is proud to host the XIII. International Symposium on Grapevine Breeding and Genetics in 2022.
Back in the 1970s, Prof. Alleweldt, then head of the Institute for Grapevine Breeding Geilweilerhof in Siebeldingen, Germany, initiated the idea of an international conference as a forum for the dynamic field of grapevine breeding at the time. The idea was to initiate a conference series, that every four years brings together leading scientist in grapevine genetics and breeding at different winegrowing places around the world.
The first meeting took place in September 1973 at Geilweilerhof under the name "International Symposium on Vine Breeding". Following symposia were held in Bordeaux, Davis and Verona, Siebeldingen, Yalta, Montpellier, Kecskemet, Udine, Geneva, Beijing, and Bordeaux. The 360 participants of the GBG2018 voted for Germany to host the next conference. Now after almost half a century the Congress is coming back again to Geilweilerhof.
The conference takes place in the historic Art Nouveau "Festhalle" in Landau next to the southern wine route in Germany in the beautiful wine region "Palatinate".
The conference will highlight current research topics in eight sessions and poster presentations on grapevinegenetic resources
- biotic stress
- abiotic stress
- grape and wine quality
