Technical Seminars

The Technical Information Section organizes a one-day Technical Seminar on a selected topic at every Plenary Meeting of the ICAC. The Technical Seminar is the most important activity of the ICAC's Committee on Cotton Production Research. The Committee on Cotton Production meets every year at the Plenary Meeting, holds a Technical Seminar and decides a topic for the next seminar in addition to discussing other activities of the TIS and technical issues in the field of production research.

Leading experts on a selected topic are invited to present papers in the Technical Seminar. Papers presented and submitted for the Technical Seminar (but not presented) are compiled and published each year. The publications are available from the ICAC.
