The World Cotton Research Conference - 5 (WCRC-5) is set to become a grand interactive platform from 7-11 November 2011 at the Renaissance Convention Centre, Mumbai, India. As of today, 470 delegates are confirmed and final attendance is expected to exceed 600 participants. The Conference is comprised of five days of presentations followed by a two-day technical tour.

The organizing committee has invited 16 eminent scientists from different countries as plenary speakers. The technical sessions include three panel discussions on 'Biotech Cotton', 'Insecticides - What Next?' and 'Fibre Quality and Textile Industry'; two special sessions on the 'International Cotton Genome Initiative' and 'Cotton Mechanization'; and 30 concurrent technical sessions with over 150 speakers. The poster session will include 180 posters covering all subjects. The Union Minister of Agriculture, Government of India, will inaugurate the conference.

Delegates will have an opportunity to take a complimentary tour of the sprawling multi-hued vibrancy of Mumbai City. The cultural evening on the first day will present programs on 'Spirit of India' to show-case the multi-cultural heritage and ethnicity that India represents. A fashion show is planned on 10th November. All segments of the cotton industry from India, with support from the Government, are poised to make the WCRC - 5 a memorable event.

The two-day post conference tour to Nagpur from 12-13 November includes visits to 'Ankur seeds farm', Bajaj Steel gin manufacturing unit, Ginning training centre, cotton-stalk particle board manufacturing unit, Pench National wild life jungle safari, Central Institute for Cotton Research, 'Sevagram Ashram' that was Gandhi's home in Central India, village interaction visit, and 'Bhagirath composite textile mill' that has ginning, spinning and textile manufacturing. The National Organizing Committee is taking all care to ensure that the five-day conference and two-day technical tour will be enriching, rewarding, eventful, fruitful and comfortable.
