Connecting sustainability and coffee quality
The 28th ASIC Conference on Coffee Science is now planned to be held 28 June - 1 July 2021 in Montpellier SupAgro (France).
Because of the worldwide coronavirus outbreak that is still affecting most countries, we decided to hold the Conference in full video format. However, we keep some flexibility and we will be able to welcome you in Montpellier (face-to-face) if the situation improves.
I hope that you will understand and approve our decision. Don't hesitate to contact us for more information.
ASIC (Association for the Science and Information on Coffee) has been existing for 54 years already and has organized regularly conferences on coffee science most usually every second year, trying to alternate coffee producing and consuming countries.
This conference represents a unique opportunity to gather specialists from all over the world working on different aspects of coffee science and technology. During the conference, all possible aspects of coffee science will be developed and the participants will be able to hear and share novelties on the different following topics:
- agronomy: genetics, botany, agrotechnology, pests and diseases, agroecology, etc.;
- chemistry: coffee analysis, chemical composition, aroma, etc.;
- technology: green coffee processing, roasting, grinding, extraction, decaffeination, etc.;
- physiological effects: coffee and health;
- packaging, storage, etc.
As the President of ASIC, I am cordially inviting all scientists working in the field of coffee and interested in sharing their research data to presently take good care of themselves and families. Please wait patiently to attend the next 28th ASIC Conference that will be held in Montpellier, France, from 28 of June to 1st of July 2021 which will allow taking advantage of all nice meeting and learning opportunities offered by the event.
