Asian Forum of the 18th World Congress of CIGR

The XVIII World Congress of the International Commission of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (CIGR) will be held in Beijing on September 16th-19th, 2014. Preparations for this big event are underway. The Organizing Committee, Scientific Committee, and Secretariat have been set up and Congress website opened to the public. AAAE serves as one of the co-sponsors of the Congress and will organize a Session and invite experts to present their thoughts and suggestions on issues concerning agricultural engineering in Asia. Below is the program of the Session.

Session IX: Asian Forum

Asia is the largest and most populous continent in the world, agriculture is very important for this continent. However, agricultural development is still restricted by the deficiency of technologies. In order to avoid agricultural issues resulting in the problems of poverty, hunger, food security and environment in Asia, academic meetings and technological exchanges are needed to seek for solutions.

Among those solutions, agricultural modernization is one of the crucial ways to resolve the difficulties, and agricultural and biosystems engineering is its foundation. Therefore, the 18th World Congress of CIGR with the theme of upgrading the quality of our life specifically offers us an opportunity at the Asian Forum to present the results of research and to discuss important issues in Asia. That is the purpose that AAAE will host an Asian Forum in conjunction with the 18th World Congress of CIGR. It will surely be beneficial for the agricultural researchers and engineers in Asian area and the world to do academic and technological exchanges and collaborations.
