The Organizing Committee of the X Congreso Mundial de la Papa – XXVIII Congreso de la Asociación Latinoamericana de la Papa (ALAP) reiterates its gratitude to those who attended the event and informs them that organizing committees work will soon conclude. There were 5 days of intense work and we are very satisfied with what we have achieved: 803 attendees and 164 abstracts accepted and presented on May 28, 29 and 30 in Cusco, available on the website (if you are not able to find one of them, please write to the corresponding author to the e-mail placed in each of the titles).
Whoever accesses this platform can download them, in PDF format (available in the Program section, and divided in Plenary, Technical and Workshop sessions). Likewise, we inform you that correct citation of the abstract book is: Abstract Book 10th WPC-XXVIII ALAP 2018 Congress: Biodiversity, Food Security and Business. Instituto Nacional de Innovación Agraria-INIA. Cusco, Perú. XX pp. The WPC-ALAP 2018 website will remain available for two more years (until December 31, 2020). We also are glad to inform you that we have uploaded numerous pictures from the different activities during the Congress. You can find them at our Flickr account.
On the other hand, we announce that the email accounts email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org will be disabled from July 1, 2018. For consultation or doubt, we would appreciate if you could contact email@example.com, whose administration is in charge of the Technical Secretariat of the WPC-ALAP 2018 from INIA Peru. On the same date, the Twitter account will be canceled. In the case of Facebook, the messages that were placed during the development of WPC-ALAP 2018 (photos, videos, news, etc.) will remain.

It has been a very enriching experience to organize this important congress, as well as receiving you all in Cusco. Our work has ended and it is time to say goodbye, being grateful with WCP Inc. who placed their trust in us. We give our very best wishes for the organizers and participants of the XI WPC that will be held in Dublin, Ireland from May 24 to 27, 2021 (http://wpc2021.com/)
