in parallel with the 14thWorld Processing Tomato Congress, bringing together academics, researchers and students with growers, processors and business professionals working in the processing tomato industry. This unique setup of an industry congress with a scientific symposium has been a major success story ever since the first world processing tomato congress in Avignon (France) in 1989 and the creation of WPTC in 1998 at Pamplona (Spain).

The organizing committee, lead by Cosme Argerich (INTA La Consulta, Argentina) and Luca Sandei (SSICA, Italy),  is inviting other researchers to submit their proposals for scientific communications during the symposium which will address key scientific questions and issues related to the entire industry, from field (production for industrial purposes, applied ecophysiology, agronomy, biotic and abiotic stress resistance, genetics applied to industrial food system) to fork (organoleptic and nutritional food quality, smart quality control processes, healthy food, high quality cultivars). 

The abstracts must be send before 18 October, by following the procedure detailed in the attached document or at  

The full symposium program will be published in January 2020, after all the abstracts have been evaluated.
