It is with a great pleasure to announce that the 7th meeting of the IOBC/wprs WG "Integrated Protection of Olive Crops" will be held in Kalamata, Greece, May 11-14, 2015.
The meeting will be co-organized by the Hellenic Entomological Society and the Technological Educational Institute of Peloponnese under the auspices of IOBC/wprs.
The meeting will take place in the city of Kalamata, in southern Peloponnese, a very well known area of olive production in Greece but also around the world, since this is the birthplace of the olive cultivars “Kalamon” and “Koroneiki”. This is also an area with strong archaeological interest but also really amazing places.
We are certain that participation in this meeting will offer a unique chance to foster exchange of most recent knowledge and stimulate common research and collaboration in olive crop protection sector, not only in Mediterranean countries but also with new areas where olives are being grown worldwide.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Greece for a very fruitful meeting but also an inspiring stay.
