18–21 August 2018 13th European Nitrogen Fixation Conference (ENFC)
It is our pleasure to announce the 13th European Nitrogen Fixation Conference (ENFC), which will be held 18-21 August 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden at the München Bryggeriet.
This European based biennial congress brings together scientists focused on biological N2 fixation (BNF) from diverse research topics of biochemistry, microbiology, computational genomics, plant physiology, and more recently genetic engineering and aquatic microbiology.
The first ENFC was held in Szeged, Hungary, in 1994, with an emphasis on participation by young researchers. The most recent ENFC in 2016 was a clear demonstration of ‘research without borders’ as 294 participants, 30 % of which came from outside of the European Union (EU), including 8 % from developing countries, attended the 12th ENFC in Budapest, Hungary. A large percent (29%) of the participants were PhD students. The value of the ENFC series has been proven over the years. Although a smaller congress by today’s standards, it has drawn the participation and presentation by leading experts of BNF. The program combines classical topics within the BNF field (e.g. biochemistry, evolution, signal transduction, N2 fixing symbioses) with highly relevant and timely topics for modern society (e.g. climate change, present and future use of BNF in agriculture).
Satellite meetings and an aquatic N2 fixation symposia will provide extra benefits for ENFC participants. The end result of the ENFC is the attraction of a diverse group of participants. Furthermore, support enabling the participation of young researchers will be provided as per tradition.
The ENFC will provide unique opportunities and specialized sessions to share and discuss latest scientific achievements in BNF and the molecular interaction between plants and symbiotic microorganisms. Join us to meet the researchers who will present their hot research topics and key institutions. The venue of the congress is München Bryggeriet, located in Stockholm, Sweden. So in addition to the scientific program and the collaborative discussions, the participants will experience a stimulating social program in the capital of Sweden.
We look forward to welcoming you in Stockholm!
Kind regards from the

7–9 September 2015 The 5th World Sustainability Forum
Centre for Teaching and Research of the University Hospital of Basel
2015 is an important year for all of us. We are taking stock of the accomplishments based on the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were adopted in the year 2000. The results of these efforts are immensely positive. In most countries around the globe, extreme poverty and hunger have been reduced, and infant, child, and maternal mortality have decreased. Girls have better access to primary schooling, progress has been made in slowing the spread of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, access to safe drinking water and sanitation has improved, and more information and knowledge is available to more people via the internet than ever before. However, not all goals have been achieved and some regions have benefitted less, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.
The period marked by the MDGs will end in December 2015. As part of the post-2015 development agenda, the international community is working intensely on a new set of goals, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be adopted at the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly in the second half of September 2015. The new set of goals, despite their similarity in some aspects, go beyond the MDGs in that (a) the formulation and focus of the goals are more encompassing, explicitly requiring active participation from wealthy and poor nations alike, and that (b) the overall focus is shifting away from ameliorating the situation of poor and underdeveloped regions and societies toward improving the sustainability of global economic and social development while concurrently protecting the environment.
7–11 July 2013 9th European Conference on Precision Agriculture (ECPA)
Lleida (Catalonia, Spain)
Precision Agriculture is a multidisciplinary approach to modern agriculture. It is using methods and techniques from other disciplines such as geostatistics, sensors, remote sensing, automation, ICT, etc. to help farmers increase their productions and product quality and reducing at the same time the environmental impact of agriculture. It has been in constant evolution since first developing stages in the late 80s/early 90s.
The size of ECPA meetings (200-250 attendees) allows focusing on specific topics related to all PA practices while discovering what our colleagues are working on, enabling synergies and co-operation. After 18 years, the 9th European Conference on Precision Agriculture will be held in Lleida (Catalonia, Spain) under the auspices of the Universitat de Lleida and the International Society of Precision Agriculture.

21–23 June 2011 Food and Environment 2011, First International Conference on Food and Environment - The Quest for a Sustainable Future
New Forest, UK
The first international conference on Food and the Environment will focus on a variety of issues affecting food production and distribution including those related to natural and anthropogenic causes. The conference will emphasise the effects of modern food production processes and how they can affect human health.
The many advances made for over a century in food production have resulted in the possibility of feeding the whole of humanity. These advances have been achieved by the introduction of new work practices and a variety of substances into the food chain, the whole process being affected by other environmental conditions such as contamination of air, water and soil resulting from sources other than agriculture. On the other hand the food production and food processing can have detrimental effects on the environment. Some of the major challenges remain with extensive farming, which though offering higher productivity and larger volumes, should not either compromise the quality of the product or cause suffering in animals.

20–25 March 2011 2011 International Farm Management Congress
Chateau on the Park, Christchurch, New Zealand
The IFMA is an international body of about 400 members primarily academics, consultants, advisors, farmers, government, administrators and policy analysts. The common thread running through the membership is an interest in farm management. The IFMA has held Congresses in many countries starting with Warwick in the UK in 1971. Although a Congress is held in a particular country, the purpose of the Congress is to bring people together from around the world to discuss and debate issues, to share experiences and to learn from each other. The Congress is not just about New Zealand! The IFMA has its own website (www.ifmaonline.org) as does the Local Organising Committee for the 18th Congress (www.ifma18.org). This document sets out the process to follow for those interested in submitting a paper for the 18th Congress. The theme is “Thriving in a global world - Innovation, Co-operation & Leadership”
As is usual in Congresses there are a number of sub themes being:
1. The environment
2. Education & training
3. Farm management
4. Business & finance
5. Marketing & Trade
6. Innovation & Leadership
The Congress is looking for papers around the theme and that fall into one of the subthemes.
15–17 September 2010 Implementation in Inter- and Transdisciplinary Research, Practice and Teaching
In a knowledge society, research questions, processes and results cannot be disconnected from everyday practices. Politicians, funding bodies and society at large increasingly demand of researchers to propose efficient ways of how to use abstract findings in concrete situations and as a common good. From the very start, implementation strategies should therefore include processes of embedding the research in its social and scientific contexts, recursiveness and negotiation with non-academic actors, and testing the expected impact through ‘real-world’ experiments. How exactly to bring research results to fruition, integrate theory and practice and build truly participative collaborations are key issues of inter- and transdisciplinarity. Keynotes includes experts in the fields of public health, new media, urban planning, sustainability, action research. Please visit our website for further information. Deadline for paper/poster/workshop submissions: 3 May 2010.
