2nd International Conference on Global Food Security
Cornell University, Ithaca, New York 10/11/2015 - 10/14/2015
Achieving global food security whilst reconciling demands on the environment is the greatest challenge faced by mankind. By 2050 at least 9 billion people will need food, and increasing incomes and urbanization will inevitably lead to dietary change. The food security challenge will increasingly encompass the triple burden of malnutrition – undernutrition, obesity and micronutrient deficiencies. The urgency of the issues has led to huge scientific strides forwards, making it difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding volume of scientific research.

Fruit & Vegetable Modeling Workshop
University of California, Davis 7/30/2015 - 7/31/2015
The purpose was to review a CIMSANS proposal for a first-ever assessment of the impact of climate and resource availability changes on the ability to continue producing an increasing, sustainable supply of fruits and vegetables, in the US and globally. The desired outcome was a finalized proposal for submission to (an) identified donor(s) later this summer. Click here

Interdisciplinary Workshop on Merging Crop Modeling and Genetics
Gainesville, Florida 7/19/2015 - 7/25/2015
Building reliable connections between the genotype and its corresponding phenotypic spectrum is one of the biggest challenges in plant biology today.
Tackling World Food System Challenges: Across Disciplines, Sectors, and Scales
Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland 6/21/2015 - 6/26/2015
The world food system faces unprecedented challenges in its ability to feed a growing global population. There is an urgent need for viable solutions and the scope of the challenges requires collaborative efforts more than ever. This conference will highlight solution-focused, interdisciplinary, and system-oriented research and practice addressing how to feed the world while considering human health, the environment, and social well-being.
