After the last successful edition in Wageningen the 6th edition of Model-IT, the International Symposium on Applications of Modelling as an Innovative Technology in the Horticultural Supply Chain will be held in Molfetta, Italy from June 9 to 12 of 2019.

Modern insights in the realm of system biology, new developments in ICT and DSS, and the high complexity of modern production systems have pushed forward the development of novel modelling tools and techniques (including advanced statistical data analysis) and their applications in production, storage and logistics of fruit and vegetables.


We envision an event where scientists with different background will share ideas and solutions and take advantage of mutual contamination in order to increase knowledge and possibly start new cooperations.

The symposium will serve as a meeting place for research and industry, facilitating the application and dissemination of models throughout the value chain while enhancing knowledge transfer within different application areas.

We hope to meet you all at coming MODEL-IT 2019.

Maria Luisa Amodio and Giancarlo Colelli
