OVERVIEW

The 19th World Congress of Food Science & Technology - IUFoST 2018 is being organized in India during October 23-27, 2018 at Mumbai to showcase the global developments in all the facets of food science and technology through 60 plus parallel scientific sessions with the participation of 250 plus speakers with rich expertise in their respective areas of specialization. The other highlights of the congress are the distinguished and plenary lectures to be delivered by world food laureates and other high profile researchers and contributors in food science and technology. The 19th IUFoST World Congress and the EXPO gets inaugurated in the morning of 2nd day i.e. October 24, 2018. The scientific sessions also include the interdisciplinary areas recognized by IUFoST.

For the student community and young researchers, the world congress offers a great opportunity for scientific and technological interactions through poster presentation which would spread across 6 sessions during the congress with expectation of 800 plus poster presentations. Another opportunity for the students and researchers who are making their professional careers is the pre-conference workshop being held on the first day of the Congress. The workshop will be in select major areas of food science and technology conducted by resource faculty with rich subject expertise and hands-on experience.

The research community including young and upcoming researchers and students will have scope to interact with leading and reckoning names in food science and technology and global business houses involved in food, agri and biological related programmes. Do not miss this great scientific global event in India and commit yourself to be in Mumbai, India during October 23-27, 2018 by registering as early bird to get all the benefits of science, culture, heritage, social and culinary aspects.

PLENARY TALKS

A major highlight of the 19thWorld Congress is the plenary talks by renowned subject expertise professionals who would share their knowledge base and provide insight into innovative thinking and research leads. Over the 5 days of congress, we envisage to have 6-8 plenary talks by leading professionals upon invitation by IUFoST India 2018. The plenary lectures are most likely to be scheduled in the early morning sessions so that it gives an opportunity for all the delegates to attend and get the benefit. The tempo of Scientific Sessions and Poster Sessions will follow after the Plenary talks and on day three morning, we will have the Distinguished Lecture through IAFoST wing of IUFost followed by New fellows induction to IAFoST.

.

It is an honor to announce that Prof. M S Swaminathan, Founder Chairman of MSSRF and UNESCO Chair in Ecotechnology, M S Swaminathan Research Foundation will deliver the Keynote lecture in the IUFoST 2018 Congress at Mumbai, India.



SCIENTIFIC SESSIONS

The scientific sessions are the backbone of this intellectual Food Science and technology conference, wherein delegates do attend to share and gain knowledge for sharpening their professional expertise. At the 19th IUFoST 2018, being a World Congress of Food Science and Technology representing participation across the globe, the scientific sessions are the prime focus. Varied with contemporary and latest subject areas of food science and technology are the major strengths of this international event being held in India for the first time. Definitely the Indian Science and Technology will be shared in the Sessions with the prime focus on Food Science and Industry R&D and Capacity building leadership including small and cottage scale industries to share their 'Innovating the Innovations' concept to be a part of the Food Chain.

For the delegates, invitees and visitors, the World Congress shall be a rich bowl of intellectual stimulation in the subject area of their interest and those that are emerging in the present global scenario. In this background, it is planned to have 60 plus parallel sessions spread across 11 Scientific Sessions with participation of about 250 plus well recognized subject experts in their respective areas of specialization. A select number of scientific sessions will have Panel Discussions by expert professionals upon invitation from 19th IUFoST - India congress for topics of common interest globally and locally.

World Food Congress Competitions

The IUFoST World Congress of Food Science and Technology is a forum to highlight cutting-edge topics of global concern and the latest innovations that aim to strengthen the global voice for food science and technology for the benefit of humanity. The 19th World Food Congress, to be held in Mumbai, India, will address these issues using the theme "25 billion meals a day by 2025, with healthy, nutritious, safe and diverse foods". For more information on the IUFoST World Congress please go here.


IUFoST is committed to providing opportunities for the next generation of food scientists and technologists to demonstrate their skill and ingenuity in addressing today's pressing issues. The Four Competitions will be held in Mumbai to inspire and recognise innovation and leadership in food science and technology: Read more about them below and spread the word to students, young scientists, and your colleagues who work with them. You are encouraged to nominate candidates for or apply for the following competitions:


IUFoST FOOD SCIENCE STUDENTS FIGHTING HUNGER: A GLOBAL STUDENT NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT COMPETITION
The purpose of this competition is to encourage food science and technology undergraduate students to use their knowledge and skills to develop innovative food products to fight hunger. Students are challenged to develop a nutritious product based on regional raw materials and technologies. The primary focus is on the practical application of scientific and technological principles with the concern for safety, sensory acceptability, shelf life, health and marketability.
Deadline for submission of a letter with project and product details is April 1, 2018. Find full information on competition, the application process, dates and application form here.



IUFoST YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARDS COMPETITIONS
The Young Scientist Competition, begun in 2006, continues to offer young scientists unique access to and insight into the World Food Congress, its expert speakers and the food scientists and technologists attending. Seven young scientists in their first post-doctoral position, first academic position, age 35 or under, will be selected from nominees to attend the Congress. Each young scientist will address a global audience with his or her research following a plenary speaker. He or she will then join over 2000 other food scientists and technologists to experience this global event.
Nominations close on April 1, 2018. Find the competition details and nomination form here.



IUFoST FOOD SAFETY WITHOUT BORDERS GRADUATE STUDENT PAPER COMPETITION

Food Safety has been identified as a key focus area for IUFoST that requires local solutions based on globally applicable principles. Food science and technology students enrolled in a M.Sc. or Ph.D. programme are invited to submit an academic paper with the objective of enhancing global food safety. The paper should address a food safety issue arising from an indigenous food from their home country or region in a practical way
Applications must be received by April 1, 2018 and will be considered by an international jury in conjunction with IUFoST. Find the details and application form here.
