From 11-14 October the chair of Horticulture and Product Physiology of Wageningen University, Biometris and Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture organise the international symposium MODEL-IT 2015 at Wageningen Campus. During this symposium the latest insights will be presented in development, calibration and application of models in the entire field of the horticultural supply chain, from production over harvest to storage, retail and even consumption.
The symposium is organised in the Forum building at Wageningen Campus around four major topics:
- Growth and physiology of crops (plant factories, greenhouses, open field, food, ornamentals)
- (Micro)Climate and climate control (open field, greenhouse)
- Postharvest physiology and technology (harvest, storage, transport, retail)
- Aggregation level (cell, plant, crop, product, chain)
The symposium will cover many different types of models, modelling tools, and model applications, ranging from systems biology models to crop growth models, post-harvest models, greenhouse climate models, control systems, and web-based model applications.
