AGSA Chair's Welcome
Greetings! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the second AGSA Newsletter of 2023. I extend warm wishes for a prosperous and fulfilling time ahead and hope that you will continue to engage with AGSA's various activities.
AGSA offers a variety of activities that I am sure you will enjoy. This year, we have much to look forward to, including the 73rd Australasian Grain Science Conference, which will be held in the historic town of Rockhampton, Queensland from 26th to 29th September 2023. Additionally, we have planned an exciting lineup for the AGSA webinar series and student-based activities for the year ahead.
On behalf of AGSA, I would like to thank Dr. Roman Buckow, Chief Technology Officer at All G Foods, Waterloo, NSW, Australia, for delivering the webinar on the topic "Plant-based meats – innovations in texturization of plant proteins." The webinar was highly successful and interactive, attracting more than 150 attendees from around the globe. The webinar is recorded and will be available to our members soon.
Our next webinar, featuring the latest trend or innovation in grain science, will be in June 2023. Details will be presented in our next newsletter. This month's newsletter highlights:
- AGSA 2023 conference update
- introduction to our keynote speakers
- abstract submission opening
- details on accommodation bookings
- student travel awards
- nominations opening for FB Guthrie Grain Science Medal
Wishing you all the best.
