This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
Nano-enabled systems offer new potential technologies toward improving the safety, quality, and sustainability of our agriculture and food systems. In 2020, this 3rd GRC on Nanotechnology for Agriculture and Food Systems will focus on the convergence of nanotechnology with food and agriculture. A community of scientists from around the globe, representing academia, industry, government, and NGOs will assemble to present and discuss cutting edge, unpublished research with other experts in the field. In appreciation of the multi-disciplinary nature of this growing field, the program includes a comprehensive vision of critical and emerging research areas. This conference will encompass nanotechnology research advances across the field of agricultural science, inclusive of food science, plants / soil, animal science, human health and disease, and address safe deployment of nanotechnology in these areas with a view to public perception and policy.
Carl Storm International Diversity Fellowships: Dear prospective attendees to the 2020 GRC on Nanoscale Science and Engineering for Agriculture and Food Systems. We are seeking nominations for the Carl Storm International Diversity Fellowship Program, to support an exceptional attendee from China, Russia, Ukraine, India, Africa, Central America, or South America. If you would like to be considered for nomination, please email the chairs a 2-page CV, and a short (150-200 words) statement for why you think you're a great candidate for this fellowship.
