The 20th Group of International Experts of Vitivinicultural Systems for Cooperation (GiESCO) meeting was held in Mendoza, the main wine region in Argentina, from 5-10 November 2017, and was dedicated to promoting the sustainability of viticulture and winemaking under future climate change scenarios. A total of 60 oral presentations were given at the conference, and together with more than 130 posters, the program covered diverse topics such as climate change, sustainability, breeding, vine physiology and vineyard management. 'Vineyard management and mechanisation' was the largest session with 16 oral presentations and 45 posters, followed by 'climate change, sustainability and zoning', and 'vine physiology', each with 13 oral presentations, and 26 and 27 posters, respectively. The professional day focussed on precision viticulture, modelling and new technologies as well as vineyard management and mechanisation. The use of new technologies such as robots and phone applications are areas of great expansion and presentations focussed on early yield predictions.
