3rd International Conference on Global Food Security: Call for Symposium Proposals and Abstracts
This news is redirected by The Secretariat for Development Cooperation at SCIENCE from Elsevier.
Global Challenges, Local Solutions and Connected Pathways
The five core conference themes reflect an integrated approach to identifying solutions to the complex global challenge of food security:
- Food creation
- Food safety and bio security
- Food loss and waste
- Food in a changing society
- Food utilization
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.
Call for Abstracts
Submit abstracts by 31 May 2017
Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited on the five core conference themes and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system.
