tech for food

If you are interested in new technologies for improving agriculture and reducing hunger then you may wish to attend the first International Symposium Tech For Food, which will take place the March 6, 2007, at the International Exhibition of Agriculture in Paris. The Symposium is free in terms of registration but places are limited. The conference and its accompanying site will examine:

all technical means for combating hunger. They are derived from advanced technologies adapted to the agricultural and agribusiness domains: satellite imagery, Internet, wireless communications, portable physical and chemical tests… and others yet to be invented or explored. Aid in land and natural resources management, in the prevention of natural risks, training, information, commercial exchanges: new technologies offer a great many levers for agricultural development and food production, as long as we are able to master their advantages and weaknesses.

More research and development oriented than cell phones for food.
