Dear colleagues and friends!
I have the honour to invite you to attend the 18th EWRS Symposium to be held from June 17–21, 2018 in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.
The year 2018 will mark 60 years since the first meeting of weed scientists in Ghent set up an international working group to accelerate progress in solving the problems caused by weeds. Over this period enormous progress has been achieved through various weed science activities. Symposia which are organized every 2-3 years by the nominated members of the European Weed Research Society had disseminated many of them.
The aim of the upcoming symposium is to exchange ideas and learning different approaches which will give us a new perspective and enable us to reach the objective of the Society to promote and encourage weed research and control technology in Europe for the benefit of the community as a whole.
We look forward to welcoming you in Ljubljana to an excellent educational and inspiring experience.
Assoc. prof. dr. Andrej Simončič
Chair of the Local Organising Committee
