2016 Outreach Seminar: Mechanization and Precision Management of Winegrape Vineyards

Moderated by last year’s Extension Distinction Award recipient Matthew Fidelibus, this seminar will talk about economizing vineyard operations. This has become more important to vineyard decision makers due to increased costs and a labor shortage. The seminar, to be held on June 30 at 3:30 p.m. at the Monterey Marriott Hotel, will not only look at the precision viticulture concept, but its impact on labor, vineyard management efficiency, vineyard variability, and grape quality.

Keynote Presentation by Dr. Carl Winter

Dr. Carl Winter

The presence of arsenic in wine has received considerable consumer and legal attention lately. UC Davis’ Dr. Carl Winter’s presentation, “Arsenic in Wine: A Scientific Perspective” will discuss the toxicity of arsenic, how it gets into wine and many other foods, and what health risks, if any, are associated with consuming arsenic from food and wine. The presentation will also briefly discuss a related issue, the herbicide glyphosate in wine, and will conclude with a non-traditional finale involving audience participation.

The presentation will take place at the Monterey Marriott Hotel on Wednesday, June 29 at 9:45 a.m.

Making the Most of Career Opportunities at the National Conference
A Free Breakfast Seminar for Early Career Members

Mike Miller, Brown-Miller Communications

The ASEV National Conference is one of the best places to stay up-to-date with the latest research and science in our industry, but there’s another key reason to attend: Networking. For early career professionals, that can be daunting in a room filled with industry superstars who seem to be constantly engaged in conversations with their colleagues.

To help you navigate opportunities and be more successful in making contacts, establishing relationships and getting to know the players in our industry, the ASEV is hosting a special Early Career Member breakfast on Wednesday, June 29 from 7:00 to 7:55 a.m. with speaker Mike Miller from Brown-Miller Communications. The free session will offer tips, strategies and opportunities for you to make the ASEV National Conference work for your long-range career goals. It’s a great way to get the most out of your time in Monterey and put you in the center of the action rather than standing on the sidelines.

New AJEV Web Features

The American Journal of Enology and Viticulture’s (AJEV) website has a new look. Here are some of the features members will notice, enhancing user experience:

  • An image carousel where authors of articles selected for the Issue Highlights can choose an image from the article to be featured on the journal homepage.
  • An easier-to-navigate journal interface.
  • A tagalong article section column that follows alongside as the reader scrolls down the page of the article.
  • An improved article Collections feature that enables readers to access content by specific topic, author, etc., rather than by viewing an entire issue. Article Collections will be retrieved in search results, instead of the search results retrieving individual articles only.
  • Websites are mobile responsive. This means the web pages reformat automatically for the device they are viewed on.

As HighWire is slowly phasing out support of the previous platform, having our journals on the new platform will provide us with enhanced support from our publisher, including the option to show new products offered by HighWire.
