Jan '11
The 5th BACSA international conference “Sericulture for multi products – new prospects for development” – SERIPRODEV will be held in Bucharest, Romania from 11 to 15 April 2011. The Institute for Bioengineering, Biotechnology and Environmental Protection – S.C.BIOING SA, Bucharest – Romania is hosting the meeting in collaboration with the Black, Caspian Seas and Central Asia Silk Association (BACSA).

Besides the traditional use of silk in the textile industry there is a recently increasing importance of using the silkworms and mulberries for medicals, pharmaceuticals, food, cosmetics, biotechnology, biomaterials etc. Therefore the multi products sericulture development has a great future as a way for both stabilizing economically and preserving this industry.

Venue and Dates:
Bucharest, Romania, hotel Ambasador, April 11th – 15th 2011

The SERIPRODEV 2011 conference is opened to all those involved and interested in sericulture industry - sericulturists, agricultural and industrial producers of cocoons, silk and other sericultural products, administrators, developers, entrepreneurs, traders, scientists and technicians, working in each step or link of production and trade chains.

We appreciate presenting country reports not only from the BACSA member countries, but also from any other country having sericulture development activities.

Science and technology papers are also invited to be presented in the field of mulberry and non-mulberry silkworms, cocoon and silk production, pathology, breeding and bacology, using silkworm and mulberry for non-textile purposes, post-cocoon technologies, silk enterprise and trade.
