Welcome to ICRF 2024

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 3rd International Conference on Rice for the Future. The conference will be at the The Berkeley Hotel Pratunam located at the very center of Bangkok from November 14 to 15, 2024. This conference is organized by the Thailand Rice Science Research Hub of Knowledge, Rice Science Center, Kasetsart University and National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC), National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA). As we deal with the future, rice as an important crop has a significant role in feeding the increasing world population amid challenges faced by all sectors related to cultivation and rice industry. This year’s conference will focus on a wider range of topics including rice omics and breeding, resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses, climate change and rice, novel processing and product development for healthy rice products, health, medical and pharmaceutical related products and agri-technology. The scientific program will include plenary lectures, invited speakers, oral, and poster presentations.

As extreme weather conditions threaten global rice production, we expect that this event will reveal many approaches to create more climate-smart, nutrient-dense rice cultivars for environmentally conscious farmers and consumers in developing countries.

We encourage you to register early to take advantage of our special Early Bird Rates available from July 15th to August 15th, 2024.

Join us at ICRF2024 and be part of shaping the future of rice!
