Macrowine 2020
Dear Colleagues,
the ongoing issues associated with the Covid-19 emergency in Italy and other countries worldwide have forced us to reconsider the plans related to the Macrowine 2020 conference to be held in Verona in June.
The possibility to move the conference later in the year was considered but discarded due to the high unpredictability of the situation over such short period of time.
In an effort to explore alternative solutions, we thought of rescheduling the conference to the same period of 2021. However, as most of you know, 2021 was going to be the year of Invino Analytica Scientia (IVAS), the other biannual reference conference for the wine science community, which was going to take place in Neustadt.  After discussing with the IVAS 2021 organizing committee as well as with the IVAS permanent scientific committee, we are pleased to inform that the next Macrowine edition will be held in Verona in June 21-23 2021, whereas IVAS will take place in Neustadt in 2022.
We are very grateful to the colleagues in the IVAS committees and particularly to the IVAS 2021 organizing committee, who were all very  positive at the idea of finding a shared solution. It is a strong effort on behalf of all the stakeholders to keep together the wine science community and respond properly to the worldwide crisis due to COVID-19. We hope that the interventions that are progressively being implemented everywhere, along with the work of medical teams and researchers around the world, will push us soon out of this very critical situation.
Look forward to seeing all of you in Verona in 2021
