IRRC 2018

International Rice Research Conference (IRRC) 2018

Sun, 14 Oct 2018 – Wed, 17 Oct 2018

The International Rice Research Conference in 2018 (IRRC2018) is organized around eight themes: 

  • Systems physiology
  • Genetic improvement
  • Disruptive technologies and innovations
  • Sustainable and equitable farming systems
  • Climate change and environmental sustainability
  • Pathways to health and nutrition
  • Food systems for the future 
  • Social inclusion and gender equality

Below, brief narratives and a set of keywords are given to describe each of these themes to guide the development and submission of abstracts for presentations in three categories: 

  • 15-minute oral presentations 
  • 3-5 minute ‘flash talks’ (science café style) 
  • posters 

Those submitting abstracts should indicate the theme under which they wish to present, select up to three keywords, and indicate their preferred category of presentation. The abstract should contain a title, list of authors (highlighting the presenter) and their affiliations, and a summary of no more than 350 words. Based on content and selected keywords, presentations will be grouped into specific sessions under each theme. The IRRC2018 science committee will notify submitters of abstracts on acceptance, placement in sessions, and categorization of their presentation. Instructions for presentations will be communicated after acceptance of abstracts.
