IX International Symposium on Kiwifruit

September 6 - September 9

Welcome to the Ninth International Symposium on Kiwifruit (KIWI-2017) which will be held in Porto, Portugal, from 6 to 9 September 2017, under the aegis of the International Society for Horticultural Science.

​This symposium is a common organization of Portugal and Spain where kiwifruit production has shown a great increase in the last decades and still represent a high growing potential.

Kiwifruit is an important grown crop all over the world. The kiwifruit of international trade are selections of Actinidia deliciosa, A. chinensis and more recently A. arguta. The great increase of new cultivars represents a challenge for scientists and producers, in the way to search for the best which fit the different types of producers and markets over the world. The symposium will evolve all the aspects of the kiwifruit industry, from breeding to consumption.

This symposium will be held at the same time as the International Kiwifruit Organization (IKO – 2017) 36ht annual conference, which will take place in the same location on 10-12th September 2017. This fact will facilitate the join of scientists, producers and traders from all over the world to exchange knowledge and discuss the main issues about kiwifruit industry.

Porto is the second bigger city of Portugal with many touristic attractions, and is located in the core of the Portuguese and Spanish kiwifruit Iberian production.

We are sure that the Ninth International Symposium on Kiwifruit (KIWI-2017) will be a great scientific and social experience for all of you.
