Purpose of the Symposium:

The aim of the Symposium is to promote the exchange of information and ideas about computer modeling in fruit tree research and orchard management among scientists from around the world who are engaged in this type of research. The Symposium will provide a setting for presentation of results and discussion of various approaches for modeling fundamental processes and using computer models in practical applications

Symposium Topics:

Contributions involving the use of computer modeling to study any aspect of fruit tree biology or the application of computer technology in orchard management are welcome. Past symposia have included computer models related to the following topics:

Light interception and photosynthesis
Dry matter and resource partitioning
Phenology and Fruit Set
Fruit Growth and Quality
Tree Growth and Architecture
Pest and Disease Management of Fruit Crops
Orchard Management Models
Decision Support Systems
Environmental Monitoring


The official language of the Symposium will be English. Contributed papers will be presented both orally and as posters. Final acceptance of papers and the method of presentation will be decided by the Scientific Committee after abstracts have been received. All papers presented at the Symposium will need to be submitted in an electronic format by the last day of the Symposium and will be reviewed and published in a volume of Acta Horticulturae.
