Chairman’s Welcome

On behalf of the conference organising committee, I encourage you to join us in Melbourne for the 69th Australasian Grains Science Association conference.  The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Grains: A Global Food Resource’ and this year’s conference will address issues across entire value-chain. 


This year’s themes include;

  • Exploiting the value of Grains
  • Grains Science and Innovations
  • Grains Industry Forum
  • Sustainable Futures and Climate Change
  • Nutrition/ Health Benefits
  • Functionality leading to better products
  • Feeding the World with Quality Grain

The scientific program committee is currently finalising key-note speakers for each session. These updates will be continually added to the conference web-page.

Please note, call for papers is now open.

AGSA encourages student participation and students are encouraged to apply for the AGSA travel awards.  Refer to links on the web-site.

This year the poster-paper presenters will have an opportunity to participate in a 2-minute rapid-fire oral presentation prior to the formal poster paper session. Details will be on the website soon.
