Opportunity for International Networking
This announcement is being sent to selected scientists worldwide with potential interest in contributing.
We are pleased to inform you about this important opportunity to participate in a special, exclusive conference and workshop focused on cereal production systems in semiarid regions under climate change. This two-day conference “Transitioning Cereal Systems to Adapt to Climate Change” will take place immediately before the Entomological Society of America and the TriSocieties Meetings, on Nov. 13-14, 2015 in Minneapolis Minnesota, USA.
The conference addresses the need to improve collaboration and integration on the interacting components of these systems, especially those that can effectively address the challenges posed by climate change. Our program speakers and panelists include prominent geneticists and breeders, crop protection specialists, agronomists, crop modelers, sociologists, economists and educators and others whose coordinated expertise can further technological advances among farmers and agricultural systems. Rather then just a series of talks, the conference will promote discussion and other interactions aimed at the following conference goals.
- Share research, outreach, and policy-relevant action to improve climate resilience of cereal systems in semiarid regions worldwide;
- Identify integrating activities to address cereal production challenges at the system level
- Identify approaches to pursuing these activities beyond the conference
- Contribute to integration of global networks focused on improving cereal systems for food security
