Invitation to host the Global Sorghum Conference in 2022 or 2023

After the success of the 2018 Global Sorghum Conference it was decided to form an International Sorghum Task Force (ISTF) to capitalize on the momentum generated by the previous conference and provide an organizing body for regular global sorghum conferences. The ISTF is a representative body for the global sorghum research community which is hosted by ICC.

The ISTF focusses on maintaining a high scientific standard and ensuring the continuation, further development, and success of the International Sorghum Conference in the future. For holding a conference of a global nature, on a crop that has important regional specificities in terms of constraints, uses, markets and stake-holders, the ISTF thinks it is important to put in place a structure to ensure that the conference is truly international and does not become too regionally specific and narrow in scope.

With this in mind, the ISTF is calling for expressions of interest from appropriately qualified organizations or consortia to hold the next Global Sorghum Conference in 2022 or 2023.

Check out all details in the invitation document and submit your Expression of Interest to the ICC Headquarters latest by 18. October 2020.
