Invited Speakers:

Symposium on ‘Advances in Production and Processing of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants' aims to increase awareness on advances achieved in production and processing of medicinal and aromatic plants which are gaining attention at the global level. During last few decades, we have witnessed a renaissance in the value of medicinal and aromatic plants for personal use and for their chemical constituents as models for new pharmaceuticals. Public interest and demand for medicinal and aromatic plant products continue to increase as new discoveries are made and the safety of the products becomes well-recognized.  Multidisciplinary scientists and practitioners will present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the fields of production and processing of medicinal and aromatic plants. The Symposium will address recent research on production aspects of MAP's that will help to understand better the growing conditions to increase their medicinal and/or aromatic values.  Additionally, processing of MAP's are critical for the consumer and this Symposium will provide the latest information on certain medicinal and aromatic plants. It will be critical to understand how production and processing affects levels of certain medicinally important components.  This Symposium will provide the unique opportunities to meet and network with colleagues from around the world with wide-ranging research interests and expertise in the field of medicinal and aromatic plants. We will be delighted to have your contribution by scientific papers, exhibitions and participation in discussions to the symposium.
