Thailand: Preparations under way for rice congress in 2014

The International Rice Congress (IRC2014) is where the world’s rice scientists will gather to share their recent findings in all research areas that have to do with rice. The congress will be held in October 2014 at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC).

The schedule has been set for the conference and arrangements are being made for plenary and special symposia speakers. Mike Jackson, chair of the science program for IRC2014, is at IRRI for two weeks to meet with the science committee for the conference and with coordinators of the symposia. He is also already deep in planning program details with conference organizers in Bangkok.

Details and updates will be posted on the conference website as well as on Facebook and the IRC2014 blog.
