Œno conference : International Symposium of Enology of Bordeaux
In 1963, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Louis Pasteur work on wine, the 1st International Symposium of Enology of Bordeaux was created by Pr Jean Ribéreau-Gayon and Dr Emile Peynaud.
After the first edition, the symposium continued in 1967, 1977, 1989 and then in 1995, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 under the lead of Pr Pascal Ribéreau-Gayon, then Pr Yves Glories, Pr Aline Lonvaud and Pr Bernard Donèche. Œno symposia are consistent with the principle of general-interest symposia covering the fields of enological science allowing exchanges within a multidisciplinary scientific community dedicated to wine sciences. Thus, 4 traditional themes - Plant environment and grape quality, Grape and wine microorganisms, Wine chemistry, Sensory analysis - are the foundation of the Œno symposia. The research questions have evolved : enological research initially focused on wine clarity and instability problems, then on fermentation control, recently, the qualitative potential of fruit and its evolution during vinification and aging has been widely studied as well as the parameters of sensory perception.
In June 2015, Œno2015 edition, took opportunity of the organization of the 10th international symposium of Enology to complete the traditional themes of enology with presentations in peripheral disciplinary fields of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, experimental economics which are intended to take more importance in the field of enology.
4 years after, from 24-28th June 2019, Research Unit in Enology, Institute of Sciences of Vine and Wine, organizes the 11th International symposium of Enology Œno2019 and welcomes the 11th edition of In Vino Analytica Scientia symposium IVAS 2019.
IVAS : In Vino Analytica Scientia conference
IVAS was initiated by the Divisions of Analytical Chemistry and Food Chemistry of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences, with Pr Christian Ducauze and the late Pr Robert Kellner as initial advocates.
2 first edition of IVAS were organized in Bordeaux (1977, 2001) then in various places, with a rhythm of congress organization every 2 years (2003 Aveiro, Portugal ; 2005 Montpellier, France ; 2007 Melbourne, Australia ; 2009 Angers, France ; 2011 Graz, Austria ; 2013 Reims, France ; 2015 Trento, Italy ; 2017 Salamanca, Spain).
This international meeting provides a unique international platform for interchange between researchers dedicated to the different aspects of the chemistry of wine and spirit production including environmental concerns, vines, grapes, and final products, as well as metabolomics, proteomics, chemical and biochemical reactions, chemometrics, microbiology, and sensory evaluation establishing a forum to discuss and present the latest developments in Analytical Science.
There is a permanent international scientific committee, with Dr Véronique Cheynier as president and Dr Fulvio Mattivi as elected Chair, that has responsibility for nominating and electing invited plenary and keynote speakers and selecting contributed papers for oral presentation from submitted abstracts. In the context of joined Œno/IVAS 2019 symposia, members of research unit in enology are participating to the IVAS international scientific committee.
