Posters are a popular part of the AWITC and are displayed throughout the conference. They provide an opportunity for researchers and students to report on ‘late-breaking’ work, for researchers to interact directly with delegates, and to show industry where research is heading.
Posters are submitted in the following categories:
- Business and technology transfer
- Environment, vine physiology and vineyard management
- Fermentation, clarification and maturation
- Grape and wine aroma, flavour, phenolics and colour
- Pest and disease management
- Wine and grape compositional analysis and health
- Wine spoilage and contamination
- Winery technologies
Twelve of the poster abstracts are selected for formal presentation within the ‘Fresh science’ sessions and twelve student submissions are selected for the Student forum: In the wine light.
Prizes, including a ‘people’s choice’ prize are awarded for the best posters. The Australian Society for Viticulture and Oenology awards cash prizes to the best two presenters in the Fresh science sessions.
Further information is available from the Poster Coordinators, Dr Mardi Longbottom and Dr Paul Grbin, at [email protected] or +61 (0)8 8313 6600.
At the 17th AWITC, 164 posters were displayed. The posters were judged by a panel at the event and awards presented in Session 10.
