The organizing committee of the Wine Active Compounds (WAC) 2020 is proud to announce that the fifth edition of the WAC conference series will take place in the Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy in Dijon, France, from Wednesday April 15 to Friday April 17, 2020, under the auspices of the UNESCO Chair “Culture & Traditions of Wines” and the Institut Jules Guyot at University of Burgundy.

The international WAC conferences have become an essential meeting point for promoting interdisciplinarity in experimental and human and social sciences of vine and wine, considering active compounds related to viticulture, enology, their biological roles and their taste/olfactory properties.

Keeping up with scientific innovation, WAC 2020 will question both in time and space frames, concepts of activity or inactivity of wine compounds.
