Dear colleagues, dear participants of the 12th International Verticillium Symposium 

The International Verticillium Symposia (IVS) are meetings held every 3-4 years, organized by the nominated member of the International Verticillium Steering Committee. The 12th IVS was hosted by the University of Ljubljana and took take place at the Austria Trend Hotel, Ljubljana, Slovenia. The 1st IVS was held in 1971 in Wye College, Kent UK and the most recent, the11th, took place in Gottingen, Germany in 2013. In between, the IVS were held in various parts of the world. Enormous progress has been achieved over this period in understanding Verticillium life-cycles, fungus epidemiology, disease control and management, taxonomy, genetics and genomics, host-Verticillium interactions and resistance and we can undoubtedly anticipate further exciting developments.

Thank you for your contribution to the success of IVS 2016! We hope that you have enjoyed in Slovenia!

Ljubljana – Where all Europe Meets

Ljubljana is a city made to the measure of man. It is a middle-sized European city, but it has retained its small-town friendliness and relaxed atmosphere while providing all the facilities of a modern capital. It is a unique city dotted with many pleasant picturesque corners where you can expect all kinds of pleasant surprises await you. Its geographical position makes Ljubljana a perfect base for exploring the many faces and beauties of Slovenia.
