Dear Irrigation Community,

We would like to invite you to attend the

IX irrigation symposium on horticultural crops.

Today the competition for scarce water resources in many places at global level is intense. Available water resources are constantly diminishing at increasing rates. Adaptation of agriculture to varying conditions induced by climate change is necessary because some changes in climate can no longer be prevented.

 

The International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) and the DiCEM/ University of Basilicata are organizing the IX International Symposium on Irrigation of Horticultural Crops, that will be held in Matera (Italy) from 17 to 20 June 2019.

During the four days of the congress, scientists from Europe, USA, Asia and Africa will review current research trends on the irrigation of horticultural plants, will present new discoveries and make plans for future research and special projects.

 

The symposium will connect scientists and technicians in order to transfer the more advanced and focused solutions regarding the irrigation sector.

 

The preliminary programme will be published shortly; it will include invited lectures, oral and poster presentations, a technical visit and a social event.

Matera, the city of Sassi

The Symposium will be held in Matera (Italy) which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is the most outstanding, intact example of a troglodyte settlement in the Mediterranean region, perfectly adopted to its terrain and ecosystem. The first inhabited zones dates from the Palaeolithic, while later settlements illustrate a number of significant stages in human history. The Sassi and the Park of the Rupestrian Churches of Matera

comprises a complex of houses, churches, monasteries and hermitages built into the natural caves of the Murgia.

Moreover Matera, has been awarded the title of the 2019 European Capital of Culture in Italy. Basilicata and neighbouring regions of Southern Italy boast many other beautiful and interesting sites for a relaxing vacation and/or cultural tourism.

We are looking forward to meeting you in June 2019 at the DiCEM Department of Basilicata University!!
