2nd Wine Graduates' Forum: Call for Abstracts gestartet!

Dear Wine Graduates,
On behalf of the German Winegrowers' Association (DWV) it is our pleasure to announce the 2nd Wine Graduates’ Forum, which will be held digitally on 11th April 2022.

The Wine Graduates’ Forum is a satellite meeting preceding the 64th International DWV-Congress. The objective of the Wine Graduates’ Forum is to promote innovation and developmental activities among students, researchers, and practitioners in wine industry.

Young professionals and scientists (Bachelor and Master Students, PhD, PostDocs) present their project results in flash presentations. A round table discussion devoted to improving and developing new ideas for future innovations will complement the forum. The event will culminate in a social mixer allowing to network and exchange in-formation with colleagues, peers and wine professionals.

We invite you to submit your application through the Call for Abstracts.

Accepted presenters are asked to emphasize the essentials of their ongoing or finished work in a 3+2 talk (3 minutes presentation with 3 slides + 2 minutes follow-up discussion and feedback from the Committee). The follow-up discussion is moderated by the Committee.

The Wine Graduates’ Forum is clustered into four sessions:

  • Climate Change, Viticulture, Sustainability, new Technologies, Biodiversity, and Grapevine Breeding
  • Innovations in Grape Processing, Microbiology, and Winemaking
  • Analytics, Sensory, and Data Processing Methods
  • Strategic Marketing and Management

Wine Graduates’ Forum registration is free via the DWV-Congress website (www.dwv-kongress.de) for both presenters and attendees.

Accepted presenters are financially supported by the DWV to attend the sessions of the 64th International DWV-Congress from 11th to 13th April 2022 by covering the congress registration fee.
The best presentation of each session will be awarded with 250.00 € by sponsors.

The Committee welcomes submissions from Bachelor and Master Students, PhD, PostDocs, and young professionals who are conducting or who have conducted (less than two years ago) scientific work in course of graduation in wine science.

Please apply by using the “Abstract Submission Form” (see below). The Abstract Submission Form guides you through the application process asking for your name, title, degree, etc. A questionnaire must be completed. By answering, please point out the importance of your work for a broad audience. The individual answers should not exceed 500 characters (incl. spaces).

  • What is the objective of your research?
  • Which methods are applied?
  • How does your research contribute to wine science, wine industry or society?

The submission deadline for Call for Abstracts is 20th March 2022. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Committee and results of the decision will be communicated no later than 1st April 2022.
