(https://iufost2018.com/scientific-areas.php#World_Food_Congress_Competitions)

One sees two timelines and dates counting down in the webpage ! One is the last date for submission of abstracts which is April 30, 2018 (extended due to global demand with the latest Registration Fee with large Concession to Students and for Low Income Group Countries to encourage higher participation) and the other is number of days left to the Congress one must check the agenda of making your travel and hotel bookings. If you need guidance for hotel and travel, please see and contact as in the website or you can make your own arrangements, but ensure you are way ahead of time as nearly 3500 persons are converging in Mumbai and heavy rush will funnel in for travel. Also please send all your details as per instructions to embassies and online for VISA to come into India and have it with you WELL IN ADVANCE. This is the time to work on Visa agenda.

A remarkable response with large number of Oral and Poster Presentations and Abstracts have happened and the reviewing process is on and you will know from the organizers the status in a short while and each of the poster uploaders and oral uploaders will hear from the organizers shortly.

Another Wonderful news is that Prof. M. S. Swaminathan, World's Renowned Agriculture, Food, and Nutrition Scientist has agreed to deliver the Key Note Address in the Inaugural of the Congress on October 24, 2018. The title of his talk "Who will feed India in the Future?" fits in so well with the focal theme of the Congress, "25 Billion Meals a Day by 2025 with Healthy, Nutritious, Safe and Diverse Foods".

Another feature of the Congress, which is introduced for the first time, is the "SPECIAL ADDRESS" from renowned food scientists and technologists globally. There are nearly 25-30 slots before the major eleven themes start as Sessions on all days parallely and below that theme almost each day the starting of session will have a Special address with that subject area or closely related to that. This has made a huge difference in bringing in the experts and getting charged with their talks and move into the arena of subject area of the same as Sessions following it.

We have a large enquiry regarding Workshops and please register now after selecting your interest. There is a plan for 6 Workshops (as you can see in the webpage) and depending upon the numbers (not more than 70 - 80 can register for Workshop and Registration will be closed on First Come first Serve Basis. Therefore, those of you who want to utilize this opportunity and get your Knowledge update and wonderful Global Certificate at the end of Workshop, please register your name in the Workshop subject right now and you may pay the Workshop fees along with the Registration fee. This will help you to register immediately. Later on when you register you include this small token registration of Workshop and inform conference@iufost2018.com, with a copy to gwyneth.alphonso@mmactiv.com.

The welcome reception on the opening day (October 24, 2018), is for all and please look forward for it. Fellows' dinner and the same evening Sessions, which include few B2B interactions on all the three days of 24, 25, 26 of October, 2018 for "job fitting" and discussions with Potential Employees so that you have the benefit of the Industries and Academia globally and for India. Please send your enquiries to Ms. Gwyneth Alphonso, (gwyneth.alphonso@mmactiv.com) for locking your time for this interview and opportunity.

Keynote Address by Prof. M.S. Swaminathan


M. S. Swaminathan

China and India, the world's two biggest populations - China feeding 1.3 billion inhabitants and India, the home to 1.1 billion - the gap between the two is narrowing.What better place for IUFoST to meet and discuss global food issues than India, and what better scientist and visionary could there be than Dr. M. S. Swaminathan, the World Food Prize winner and IUFoST Distinguished Lecturer for the World Congress in China, to introduce the IUFoST global food science and technology community to his home country..


Back in 2008, Dr. Swaminathan joined another World Food Prize winner Dr. Philip Nelson and another Distinguished Lecturer, Dr. Ismail Serageldin of the Library of Alexandria to provide challenges to the food science and technology community in addressing some of the issues contributing to food insecurity.

Highlight of Dr. Swaminathan's challenge statement:
Achieving Sustainable Nutrition Security for All and Forever We need to bring about a paradigm shift in policy formulation from attention to food security at the aggregate level to nutrition security at the level of each child, woman and man. Nutrition security can be defined as physical, economic and social access to balanced diet, safe drinking water, environmental hygiene, primary health care and primary education. Thus, it involves both food and non-food factors from the point of view of professional and public action... Population rich, but land hungry countries have no option except to produce more food under conditions of diminishing per capita availability of land and water and expanding biotic and abiotic stresses, including the consequences of climate change. Nutrition security safety nets for the economically underprivileged population should be based on a life cycle approach, starting with pregnant mothers and ending with old and infirm persons."

Dr. Swaminathan will address the first IUFoST World Congress to be held in his home country with the keynote speech "Who will Feed India in the Future".

Date: October 24, 2018 (Wednesday) in the Inaugural Session (Morning)
In the 1960s, when India was on the verge of a mass famine.

M.S. Swaminathan along with Norman Bolaug and other scientists, developed high-yielding varieties of wheat. This development led to the Green Revolution in India. Later, he promoted sustainable development which he called the 'Evergreen Revolution'.



PROGRAMME AT A GLANCE

The Scientific Program is being divided into Workshops, Inauguration, Plenary Talks, Scientific Sessions, Poster Presentation. Special Events like Food Industry leaders Forum, Quiz Bowl, Young Scientist Award Presentation and Scientific Interactions at EXPO and other related events.

This you would witness around 50 Organisations coming together to make this event happen with a powerful agenda of the Theme "25 Billion Meals a Day by 2025, with Healthy, Nutritious, Safe and Diverse Foods"



WHY I HAVE TO ATTEND IUFOST 2018

Reason To attend

Meet, Learn, Network and get Inspired from some of the most fascinating and accomplished professionals from established, evolving and emerging markets in the Science of Food. Some reasons to help you make sure you get the most out of the experience of participating IUFoST 2018 are :


1. To network:

Presenters and Food Industry experts are more accessible and many of them are at the event to expand their own professional connections. Check the list of Speakers, Exhibitors and Visitors attending the conference, prepare a list to who you would like to meet. Also, do not forget to include great networking opportunities such as the Interactive Session at the Expo, Inaugural Reception, Award Session, Gala Dinner and Valedictory Session and B2B interactions.

Keep sufficient open space in your schedule to network and collaborate with other conference participants.

Take advantage of both formal (such as the Inaugural Reception) and informal (such as common areas of the event) to meet new people both in person and digitally through INTERLINX (a special tool to fix meetings and appointments much before the Congress starts and also during the Congress).


2. To Learn:

This is the time to expand your knowledge. You will hear a lot about things in your field that will be new to you. These could be new techniques, new types of equipment, unpublished data and innovations from thought-leaders in food science that you may not have previously heard of. You will get updated with the research of well known scientists in your field, in addition to meeting young folks and gain feast of knowledge.


3. To Seek Business Opportunity:

Many attendees come to a conference to build a network and seek new business opportunity. Grow your personal brand. Encounter new vendors and suppliers. Too often people shy away from the trade show exhibit hall at conferences. They fear that they will have to talk to sales people, but these industry suppliers are some of the best people for you to get to know, if you want to learn more about the current business climate. Know what is happening inside your competition. Discover innovative products and services for your business which is necessary to stay competitive in today's fast-paced world. Invest time with the sponsors and exhibitors at the event and turn them into your friends and allies. Make on-site lead generation, match attendees and schedule appointments.

This is also a place where you may be spotted for a lucrative job offer, as companies will be seeking expertise and opportunities may come your way.


4. Have Fun and a Taste of India:

Mumbai, a city of extremes, a city of paradoxes, a city of unlimited possibilities and surprises, this is a city that defies all definitions. The heart of Bollywood, the commercial capital, a melting pot of cultures, traditions and religions, Mumbai has a little something tucked in for every kind of visitor that comes her way. The first is to fix a date of travel and the length of stay. The advantage of doing this is that you can enjoy quality prices offered for advance booking on air tickets. Check all Tourist attraction at our page on www.iufost2018.com. Make a list of places to visit. Check the route as well as the duration and plan ahead either before October 23 and/or after October 27, 2018.


5. Take It Forward:

While it's still fresh in your mind (perhaps on the ride home), write a concise 1-2 page summary of what happened at the event and people you have to contact and how you will use the information to further the initiatives of your organization. Use your onsite agenda and conference notes to help you capture important details.


6. Share the insights:

If the knowledge you gained might also be useful to others in your organization, consider rewriting portions of your summary as a blog or sharing it with others and make sure those who unfortunately could not be present also get the benefit after you go back from the Congress.



THEME OF THE CONGRESS

The Congress plans to bring all sectors from FARM to FOLK together to feed the Growing Population of the world. Hence the Theme.

"25 Billion Meals a Day by 2025 with Healthy, Nutritious, Safe and Diverse FOODS"

Unless there is synergy between engineering and Food Science and Technology with fundamental Food Chemistry and backward integration of agriculture and forward integration of ingredients, innovative processes and cost effective methods of distribution of foods, prevention of food wastes and losses, the agenda of future foods and sustainable nutrition for all is not easy to achieve. It is our fond hope that the subject of Food Science and Technology starts vibrating even in the minds of subject experts not involved with Food Science, Technology and Engineering to open up their doors for Food Science community to enter the untraversed paths and find new ways of thinking to ensure that every human and animal in this globe will have fair and sumptuous nutritious food with safety. The link of traditional foods with modern Science and Technology for networking the local foods to global level. The congress to address this in depth and work towards it to achieve the goal of feeding all by networking with different disciplines both related or not related to food. Hunger can only be felt and suffered and no one can die in this world with hunger with all the developments we have at our palm. This shall drive the passion and compassion of the IUFoST 2018 theme.
