ICAC to host cotton research conference in October
The International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) has announced that the World Cotton Research Conference (WCRC) will be held from October 3-7, 2020 in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt. The WCRC is organised by the ICAC under the auspices of the International Cotton Researchers Association (ICRA). It brings together the top researchers and cotton specialists from across the globe.

The seventh event held since 1994, the WCRC will serve as a global platform for scientists and experts to share the latest updates in cotton research and development. Internationally recognised experts will be invited to deliver plenary and keynote presentations.

"Given the many challenges that cotton is facing around the world — including soil degradation, inefficient knowledge transfer and lack of access to modern technologies — it is the perfect time to convene many of the world's top cotton scientists to find the path forward," said ICAC head of technical information, Dr Keshav Kranthi. "The ability to meet face-to-face with colleagues from all over the world and learn from each other is an opportunity not to be missed."

The WCRC is held once every four years in different cotton-growing countries. Previous conferences were held in Australia (1994), Greece (1998), South Africa (2003), USA (2007), India (2011) and Brazil (2016).

Formed in 1939, the ICAC is an association of cotton producing, consuming and trading countries. It acts as a catalyst for change by helping member countries maintain a healthy world cotton economy; provides transparency to the world cotton market by serving as a clearing house for technical information on cotton production; and serves as a forum for discussing cotton issues of international significance.
