Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 3rd Symposium on Horticulture in Europe (SHE 2016) in Chania, Greece on the 17-21 of October jointly organized by the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania (MAICh) and the Cyprus University of Technology, Department of Agricultural Sciences, Biotechnology & Food Science under the aegis of the International Society of Horticultural Sciences (ISHS).

The Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania is proud to host this ISHS Symposium at the Minoa Palace Resort & Spa is a 5* luxury hotel and low-rise bungalow complex, situated in Platanias region, 12km west of Chania city center and 24 km from Chania International Airport. Chania is one of the most beautiful cities of Greece, located in the northern coast area of the prefecture of Chania, an area of natural beauty and long cultural heritage. Breathtaking stretches of seashore sandy beaches at the foot of rocky mountains. Famous gorges like “Samaria”, caves, historic monasteries and green valleys covered with olives trees.

The Symposium is getting established as an interdisciplinary forum within the science of horticulture providing endless opportunities for exchange of knowledge, expertise, ideas and great networking. A wide array of scientific disciplines such as genetics and breeding, ecophysiology and stress physiology, genomics and biotechnology, hort crops quality and post-harvest technology etc merge together and cross with recent developments in fruit, vegetable and ornamental crops.

The conference welcomes scientists, researchers, teachers and students as well as professionals of the horticulture industry to establish new collaborations and contacts to present and discuss their findings. The conference will comprise plenary and regular sessions, workshops and display of posters.

We are looking forward seeing you in Chania!
