The 1st FNSSA is an international scientific conference which has been jointly launched and will be organized by the Agro-Food Industries Alliance (funded by Academy of Scientific Research and Technology in Egypt), World Food Program, the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT, Alexandria), Alexandria University, Egypt, and IEREK – International Experts for Research Enrichment and Knowledge Exchange in collaboration with Springer as a publishing partner
The event will take place in Cairo from 1st to 3rd December 2019.
The conference will be an opportunity to present and discuss the newest researches related to food, nutrition, and sustainable agriculture, and to shed light on thier relationships with the industry. The scientific committee welcomes contributions from academia and industry.
Aim and Scope of FNSSA 2019:
The 1st FNSSA conference will focus on the recent researches and discoveries in the arena of functional foods, nutraceuticals, food safety, sustainable agriculture, agro-food engineering, technology and food security.
The conference will offer a unique opportunity for researchers in both academia and private sector, experts, founders, CEOs’, SMEs, industry, business delegates and youthful scientists across the globe to meet, network, share findings, publish the latest results and advances and perceive new scientific innovations in the field. In this context the conference will provide researchers, practitioners, educators, and investors with the most recent innovations, trends, concerns, practical challenges, and solutions in various fields of food and nutrition security, and sustainable agriculture. The selected contributions to the conference will be published in the proceedings by Springer in ASTI book series and authors of the best papers will be invited after the conference to submit an extended version of their papers for publication in special issues of a number of indexed journals by Springer and other reputable publishers.
This track will discuss the metabolism of the various nutrients and their nutritive value.
Functional foods are foods that have a positive effect on health beyond basic nutrition. Probiotics are live microorganisms which when consumed may confer a health benefit to the host.
Food fortification include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and botanicals, and many other products. Dietary supplements come in a variety of forms: capsules, traditional tablets, and powders, as well as drinks and energy bars.
A Nutraceutical is a pharmaceutical-grade and standardized nutrient. Under the umbrella of “dietary supplements,” nutraceuticals are any whole food – not an isolated nutrient or vitamin – that is concentrated and repackaged in a non-food format like a capsule. Nutraceutical is the hybrid of nutrition and pharmaceutical.
The rising awareness of consumers toward the health benefits of foods and their nutritional benefits for potential health enhancement and disease prevention is the driving force of the global functional food and nutraceutical market.
Food can transmit disease from person to person as well as serve as a growth medium for bacteria that can cause food poisoning. Food safety is a significant public health issue. Food safety describes handling, preparation and storage of food in order to prevent foodborne illness. Every year death of approximately 2 million people occurs due to unsafe food. An effective food legislation and food control is required for every nation to promote a safety food supply to protect consumers from contaminated foods. Quality control is a process through which a business seeks to ensure that product quality is maintained or improved with either reduced or zero errors. Quality control requires the business to create an environment in which both management and employees strive for perfection.
Agro-Food Engineering & Technology is leading to create a new revolution in sustainable agriculture and food industry. Food technology is the conversion of agricultural products into food or of one form of food into other forms. . The food technology derive into new methods and systems for new food products and keeping food products safe. Agricultural Engineering provides emerging new technologies to expand food production and focused on machinery, Irrigation and renewable energy. Agro-Food Engineering & Technology development leads to efficient food security and crop production.
Food Security is the condition in which all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. The three determinants of food security are food availability, food access, and food utilization and depending upon them are its nutritional impacts.
Agro-food business is the business of agricultural production and food processing. It includes agrichemicals, breeding, crop circulation, farm machinery, processing, and seed accumulation, food production, fast food as well as marketing and retail sales. The agribusiness systems pathway includes occupations involved in the coordination of all activities that contribute to the production, processing, marketing, distribution, financing and development of agricultural commodities, plant and animal products, and other natural resources.
How water–energy–food nexus can support food security and sustainable agriculture. Population growth, rapid urbanization, changing diets and economic development are just some of the factors driving increased demand for water, energy and food. Agriculture is the largest consumer of the world's freshwater resources, and more than one-quarter of the energy used globally is expended on food production and supply. Concurrently, the demands for water, food and energy are increasing within cities, and unless a balance is struck the livability of these cities will soon be compromised.
Solar irrigation is an increasingly reliable, relatively low-cost, clean-energy solution for agricultural water management in areas with high incident solar radiation.
The demand for environmental resources is increasing globally as populations and incomes grow. Undoubtedly, there is a need to increase production to meet future demand, but it is also necessary to make better use of the food that is already being produced. Food losses and waste are a missed opportunity to improve global food and nutrition security, a squandering of environmental resources, and a contributor to climate change. Agro-Food Engineering & Technology pay attention to how to transfer Agro-Food waste to added value products and energy. Agricultural & Food waste occur at the stages of producing, processing, retailing and consuming.
Sustainable agriculture seeks to sustain farmers, resources and communities by promoting farming practices and methods that are profit. The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet society’s needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable agriculture focus on healthy environment, economic profitability, and social and economic equity. Integrated agricultural production is a mixed approach to farming that uses natural resources through the combination of crop and livestock inputs and outputs to promote environmentally beneficial farming practices. This track emphasis on agricultural production systems modelling improvement. Cropping systems modelling has become agricultural modelling, incorporating new capabilities enabling analyses in the domains of greenhouse gas emissions, soil carbon changes, ecosystem services, food security, pests and disease losses, livestock and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
