The World Cotton Research Conference-6 (WCRC-6) will be held in Goiânia, the capital and largest city of the Brazilian state of Goiás, from June 20-24, 2016.
 
The WCRC-6 will be organised under the auspices of the International Cotton Researchers Association (ICRA), an entity that represents cotton researchers throughout the world. The International Committee headed by the chairman of ICRA is advising the local organising committee.
 
The conference will bring together vast experiences in production systems and latest developments in cotton research. The event programme will include conferences and panel discussions in plenary and concurrent sessions. The conference will invite plenary speakers and keynote speakers who are internationally recognised in cotton research. A field visit to modern cotton agriculture production systems in Brazil will also be a part of the programme.
 
The conference will also count on the participation of specialists in different fields, such as plant breeding, biotechnology, planting systems and pest management, among many other areas. The lectures given during the event will touch upon topics that are key to the advancement of cotton producing technology.
 
“The event will be a great opportunity for researchers to present the results of their work, expand and strengthen their professional contact network and learn about the most important research done in the world,” according to Luiz Renato Zapparoli, president of the WCRC-6 organising committee.
 
The International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC), CABI, FAO and CIRAD are sponsoring the conference, with the major support coming from the ICAC.
 
Incidentally, Goiânia has the largest green area per inhabitant in Brazil, and the second-most in the world, after Edmonton, Canada. (RKS)
