2021 Call for Abstracts

We are pleased to offer the Call for Abstracts for the 72nd ASEV National Conference. The extended deadline for submission is March 1, 2021.

ASEV encourages the submission of abstracts based on original research and research updates in all areas of viticulture and enology. Additionally, we would like to see abstracts in the following research areas:

  • Climate and other environmental issues
  • Irrigation management
  • Trunk disease management
  • Tactics in vineyard wildlife prevention
  • Impact of smoke exposure on grape and wine composition

The National Conference provides a forum for the dissemination of research in the fields of enology and viticulture or related sciences. An abstract can be submitted independent of publication of a paper, and we welcome abstracts for both ongoing and completed research projects. Accepted abstracts will be presented at the 72nd ASEV National Conference.

The in-person meeting in Monterey, California USA was canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. The conference will now be held virtually. 

Submit your abstract online before March 1, 2021.
