The biennial Australasian Postharvest Horticulture Conference will be held on October 1-4th 2003 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.  The conference seeks to bring together researchers and industry groups involved in all aspects of postharvest research.

Supply chain Workshop
The conference will be preceded by an on-site workshop entitled "R&D Delivery in the Postharvest Supply-chain" (free entry to conference delegates).   This workshop will bring together significant industry participants.

Conference Format
The conference will comprise invited speakers and sessions on selected topics, with both general oral and poster sessions.  The number of oral presentations will be restricted and we encourage the submission of posters where appropriate.  The format will foster informal interaction between participants.

A book of abstracts will be available at the conference.  Full proceedings will be published electronically.

Conference Venue
The conference will be held at the Carlton Crest Hotel in the heart of Brisbane city.  The beautiful Brisbane River is a central feature throughout the city and its surrounds, with the waterway and Southbank parklands well utilised.  Brisbane is within easy driving distance of both the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast beaches, and with the Brisbane International Airport linking most major tourist destinations.

Special rates have been arranged with the Carlton Crest Hotel for conference guests.  Details will be available in the registration brochure.
