Dear Friends and Colleagues,
As the Association of Food Technology-Turkey, we are honored to hold once again an important international congress on food science and technology, as we did in 2010 and 2014 with great successes. The 3rd International Congress on Food Technology will be held in Cappadocia in Turkey on 10-12 October 2018. On behalf of the organizing committee, I cordially invite you to this forthcoming Congress to present your research achievement and share your valuable experiences in food science and technology field.
We believe this congress will be a global gathering with a scientific program which will cover topics of almost all aspects of food science and technology research and development, besides the strategic plans and approaches to prevention of food fraud which is the most important global food industry and regulatory issue, rather than catching it. This international congress will provide a platform for food science and technology researchers and professionals from different parts of the world to discuss and learn about their latest research achievement and to develop collaborations, in addition with trying to find solutions to food fraud.
The theme of the Congress is What can we do to prevent food fraud?. Local and international speakers will also present information on a variety of food frauds such as adulterant substances, including substitution, dilution and concealment; tampering; theft; diversion; over-runs or unauthorized production; and simulations and intellectual property rights counterfeiting.
It is our intention to make this congress an event that combines high quality scientific content with the opportunity to meet in a fascinating nature wonder in Turkey, Cappadocia (land of the beautiful horses), and venue for the Congress. It has been one of the most interesting and spectacular landscapes in the world where the natural effects of wind, water and rain eroded this area into a spectacular, surrealist landscape of rock caves, capped pinnacles and fretted ravines in colors ranging from warm tones of red and gold to cool tones of green and gray. It is also a culturally dynamic town offering social attractions and events, as well as modern and comfortable accommodation, which guarantees every participant a really pleasant stay nowadays.
Although 2018 is a long time away, we ask all members of the global food science and technology community to make every effort to join us in Cappadocia, Turkey. As the organizing committee, we will show you the Traditional Turkish Hospitality from our hearts as we did in the 1st and the 2nd Congresses respectively in 2010 and 2014.
We look forward to welcoming you to Cappadocia in October 2018. Joining us, you will have an exciting experience and good memory here.
We will provide more detailed information on this website as our planning develops further.
Prof. Kadir HALKMAN
