Post-Conference Overview

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!
