Second International Congress of mountain and steep slope viticulture

The Scientific Committee met in Monforte de Lemos (Galicia) on December the 15th. Due to the limited period of time allowed by the Congress programme and after an attentive examination of the
92 submitted subjects, the Scientific Committee has decided to admit 37 of them as oral presentations, and 52 as posters. Communications will be divided into 3 plenary sections.
Each topic will be introduced by someone invited by the Organisation Committee. The same will happen at the closing section.


The Second International Congress of Mountain and Steep Slope Viticulture is organized by the CERVIM in collaboration with the Xunta de Galicia and the Consello Regulador de la D.O. Ribeira
Sacra. The financial support given by Galician partners made possible low participation fees.
The participation fees are 80 euros for participants, 40 euros for students and 70 euros (tourist visit, the lunch on the day of the visit and the congress dinner on Friday) for companions who
are not going to attend the Congress.
The payment of the participation fee includes the whole Congress, the technical tour, meals and a copy of the Acts of the Second Congress as well as other documents.
However, all participants and companions will have to pay their travel and overnight stay at their own expense.
