The Symposium is a joint initiative of the Cyprus University of Technology, Department of Agricultural Sciences, Biotechnology & Food Science and the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania, Greece. The symposium will be held in one of the most well-known resorts of the Mediterranean area, the Aphrodite Hills, Intercontinental Hotel, located in the Kouklia area, between Paphos and Limassol, from 10th to 13th of June, 2014.

Towards the establishment of new links and collaborations among participants, the Symposium aims to bring together researchers from diverse fields of study who share a common interest in postharvest science. The conference will provide the opportunity for scientists, professionals and students to present their latest findings and discuss their current work related with basic and applied aspects in postharvest issues. We hope the meeting will promote the exchange of ideas and international cooperation and collaboration among researchers. The symposium will be comprised of plenary and ordinary sessions, workshops and poster display sessions that are expected to provide new knowledge and promote scientific dialogues during the conference.

Conference topics are (1) system biology approaches and new insights in postharvest physiology, (2) innovations in postharvest technology, (3) fresh produce quality, safety and supply chain management, (4) effects of ripening and storage on nutritional and functional components in horticultural commodities. Exceptionally, this event is supported by the COST Action FA1104 'Sustainable production of high-quality cherries for the European market'. A session of this Conference is devoted on postharvest physiological and technological aspects of cherry fruit.

With the aim to attract and at the same time facilitate the participation of interested parties we try to minimize the registration cost. Furthermore we endeavour to offer a high-quality and interesting program with renowned keynote speakers, as well as an attractive social program during the conference. The symposium website includes information about scientific program, hotel accommodation, post symposium tour, sponsorship opportunities and other social events and news.

The conference includes a central scientific program and great opportunities for networking among participants. There will be many opportunities to establish new partnerships among the academic, biotech, applied and commercial agriculture communities that will have positive effects on the future of the legume industry internationally. 

The scientific program is structured around plenary talks from the world’s leading legume scientists in major important disciplines including: legume genetics, human nutrition, agronomy, molecular breeding, and trait improvement and physiology
 
The combined interests of ICLGG and IFLRC span the spectrum from basic legume science through consumer-driven applications.  An underlying theme of the conference is to explore scientific avenues to increase demand for legumes in a high-value market chain worldwide. Our industry has the potential to grow by focusing the latest technologies on the needs of producers and consumers. The joint meeting of IFLRC and ICLGG represents a unique opportunity to advance this goal.

The congress is being hosted by the Australian Society of Horticultural Science, the New Zealand Institute of Agricultural and Horticultural Science, and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community, under the auspices of the International Society for Horticultural Science.

Held every four years at various sites around the world, and attracting more than 2,000 delegates, the congress is a world forum on all aspects of horticulture and horticultural science.

The theme of the 2014 congress is ‘Horticulture - sustaining lives, livelihoods and landscapes’. We’ve chosen this theme to highlight the unique potential of horticulture to address the key issues of modern society - health, wealth and the environment. Horticulture matters to us all, whether we are involved in research, extension, education, servicing horticulture in production, amenity or environmental horticulture, in developed or developing countries.

In the spirit of scientific cooperation and sharing knowledge globally, the congress will showcase advanced technologies that are becoming globally significant in a world with a rapidly growing population, less cultivatable land and an environment under threat.

This will be the second time that Australia has had the privilege to host the congress. The vibrant city of Brisbane and the adjoining Gold and Sunshine Coasts are rich in natural beauty and cultural heritage and offer adventure, fun, and entertainment for all ages.
