Cucurbitaceae 2022 conference was held in Naples, Florida from October 30 to November 2, 2022. The meeting brought together 142 scientists from 16 nations across four continents for in-depth exploration of new frontiers in cucurbit research and development. The meeting included 62 presentations in cucurbit R&D across six themed sessions, engaging discussion meetings, and a field tour of southwest Florida vegetable industry. It was refreshing to have in-person interaction with colleagues after a long time!
Thank you to our sponsors, committee members, volunteers, and to you all for making Cucurbitaceae 2022 a resounding success! We look forward to seeing you in Naples, Italy for the XIIIth EUCARPIA conference on cucurbit genetics and breeding in 2024!
