Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.
Malaysia has been given the honour of hosting the Asia Pacific Conference on Plant Tissue Culture and Agribiotechnology 2007 from the 10 to 14 June 2007, under the auspices of the Asia Pacific Association of Plant Tissue Culture and Agribiotechnology and the Academy of Sciences Malaysia. The Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will be the venue for this Conference. It is also the first time in the history of the conference that Malaysia is selected to become the host for this major event, which unfolds in the year when Malaysia celebrates it’s Fiftieth Year of Independence.
This international conference will be a comprehensive professional platform to promote research in all aspects of basic and applied biotechnology, especially in the areas of plant tissue culture and agribiotechnology. One of the primary objectives is to share recent research achievements and innovations in biotechnology and to evaluate and review opportunities for advancing it in the Asia Pacific region. Apart from plenary and key-note lectures and scientific sessions, other highlights of the Conference will be an Orchid Symposium, a Business Forum and a Trade Exhibition.
The Organizers of this Conference, the Asian Institute of Medicine, Science and Technology (AIMST) and the Kulim Hi-Tech Park (as representative of the Kedah State Government), together with their collaborators, Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM), Universiti Malaya (UM), Universiti Sains Malaysia and Malaysian Biotechnology Information Centre (MABIC) would like to invite you to this major international event.
The Asia Pacific Conference on Plant Tissue Culture and Agribiotechnology (APaCPA) 2007 in Kuala Lumpur will be the fourth conference in the series. The theme chosen is "Biotechnology for Better Food, Health & Quality Living".
Considering the growing importance of biotechnology in the modern world and also the region's strong posture in biotechnology, this Conference will provide an excellent avenue to address the multifarious challenges and opportunities in the field.
APaCPA 2007 will bring to the people of the region an opportunity to hear and discourse on the numerous achievements in the field of modern biotechnology, especially in plant tissue culture and agribiotechnology. The Conference will feature plenary and invited lectures by eminent speakers on the current state of knowledge in key areas of interest, while also allowing for scientific reporting of achievements via oral and poster presentations.
It will also incorporate a Trade Exhibition and Business Forum. Research organizations and biotechnology companies will therefore have a unique opportunity to showcase their products, technologies and state-of-the-art equipment, as well as to brainstorm and network with other local and world leaders so as to enhance research collaborations and business cooperation among the various biotechnology stakeholders. An added bonus is an Orchid Symposium on 14 June 2007, which will be open also to the international orchid fraternity.
