The 17th International EUCARPIA Conference on Genetics and Breeding of Pepper and Aubergine will take place from the 11th to 13th September 2019 at the Popes’ Palace, Avignon, France (https://symposium.inra.fr/eucarpiacapsicumeggplant2019).
This conference is a triennial event much-awaited by the seed production sector and the whole of the scientific community working on these two market-garden crops. The previous conference in Hungary in 2016 united nearly 230 researchers and research and development professionals from 29 countries in 5 continents. Sessions to be included cover the following research and breeding topics:
- Genetic Resources and Domestication
- Resistance to biotic and abiotic stress
- Nutritional value, quality traits and yield
- Biotechnology and Genomics
- Pre-breeding and Breeding
Selected papers will be published in this special issue of the journal Crop Breeding, Genetics and Genomics.

Submission Deadline: 15 October 2019
Manuscripts should be submitted online through Hapres Online Submission System. Please visit Guide for Authors before submitting a manuscript. Authors are encouraged to submit a paper as soon as it is ready and don’t need to wait until the deadline. Submissions will be sent to peer-review in order of arrival. Accepted papers will be published continuously in Crop Breeding, Genetics and Genomics (CBGG) and then gathered together on the special issue webpage. We welcome Research articles, Review papers and Short Communications. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for approval.
Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Virtual Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.
All papers belonging to a Virtual Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Virtual Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Virtual Special Issue website.
Submissions to Virtual Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
