By the extended deadline we received about good 70 abstracts. Because of time limitation, we had to make choices. Altogether 35 abstracts were chosen. The list of chosen papers is found under ”Programme”.

In addition to the papers, we will organize a poster session mainly for young researchers and PhD students. We will also reserve time for presentation of EU research project in producer cooperatives.
