President’s Message

We, the Indian weed science community are excited about the upcoming 25th APWSS Conference being organized by the Indian Society of Weed Science (ISWS) during 13-16 October, 2015 in Hyderabad, India. India is hosting this Conference only for the second time - the first one was held way back in 1981. The conference is based on the theme “Weed Science for Sustainable Agriculture, Environment and Biodiversity”. Over a dozen eminent weed scientists from around the world will be speaking on subjects of topical interest covering the recent advances in weed science. Over 500 weed scientists including over a hundred are expected to participate in this mega event. Students and research scholars are being encouraged to attend the conference by offering them with special discounted registration fee. Similar discount has also been offered for participants from SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries. Another highlight of the Conference is the special publication that has been proposed to be brought out to commemorate the 25 years of APWSS. This special semi-technical silver jubilee publication is expected to document the current status weed science in the Asia Pacific region. Well renowned weed scientists from each country have volunteered to contribute to this publication that will be edited by a team of experts. Hyderabad- the venue of the Conference is a major metropolis located in south central part of India. It is a city known for its rich history, culture, cuisine and monuments. Hyderabad is also a modern city housing major IT companies, shopping malls and educational institutions. The organizing committee is making all out efforts to make this event a truly memorable one. I appeal all interested weed scientists to participate in the Conference. Please visit www.apwss.org or www.isws.org.in for further information.
