INVITATION TO ATTEND:
CoNFoMa Symposium on THE FUTURE OF FOOD
Sep 8-9, Minneapolis, MN
How might science and engineering help solve problems?
Sponsored by the USDA, the symposium on convergence of (nano) technology
in food manufacturing (CoNFoMa) will focus on establishing a collective
vision for linking cutting edge research with food engineering across
the food/water/energy/sanitation/Health (FEWSH) spectrum, as well as
safety and sustainability.
We stress the need to apply system thinking to solve the world's most
challenging food manufacturing problems, from post-harvest to consumers.
Even if your work is not central to FEWSH, food, or nanotechnology, your
engagement with this event suggests that your sphere of contribution has
implications for our future.
We'll be asking hard questions and stress the need to apply system
thinking and the need for convergence between several domains, to
address the challenges presented by manufacturing food, to feed ten billion people. The impact of combining bio, info, nano, ecology and
economics may be only limited by our imagination.
Please join us at the CoNFoMa Symposium on Sep 8-9, 2018. Hope to see
you all there!
