The conference is held under the auspices of the Austrian Federal Minister for Agriculture, Regions and Tourism, Mag. Norbert Totschnig, MSc. and the Mayor and Governor of Vienna, Dr. Michael Ludwig.
“Vienna ICC Conferences” have become a tradition since the Association was founded in 1955 and since the Headquarters is located there.
The Department of Food Science and Technology of BOKU will host this event.
The hybrid format includes benefits for all participants. Attending in person, you will enjoy the event as well known from previous years including all the networking possibilities plus to be connected comfortable to the digital platform, which facilitates to retrieve information, arrange meetings etc. Participating remotely, you’ll have access to all content and be able to attend the live sessions, download e.g. the Book of Abstracts, view posters, interact with participants and speakers via chat or video call, and build your own personalised schedule.
The Conference Committees with members from public and private institutions from all over the world will facilitate an interesting program, focused on sustainability and future challenges in the cereal sector by inviting internationally renowned experts. The program will cover aspects and latest developments starting from crop production with special emphasis on the change of climate and its influence of the world nutrition, via cereal processing, nutrition, analytics, quality and safety up to market trends and consumer demands to tackle the needs in the cereal business today and tomorrow.
