Call for Symposium Proposals

Submit proposals by 28 April 2017

Whilst symposia topics need to be broadly aligned to the area of Global Food Security and the conference theme of Global Challenge, Local Solutions and Connected Pathways, the purpose of the symposia is to present bold, innovative and cutting-edge discussions, ideas and technologies. In this way, the symposia enable leading thinkers to present ideas and innovations which have the potential for high impact, but are in need of strengthening or scaling-up.
