On June, 5th 2015

 On behalf of the International Commission of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (CIGR) Section VI, Massey University and the New Zealand Institute of Food Science & Technology (NZIFST), we warmly invite you to attend the 9th CIGR Section VI International Technical Symposium “Creating Value from Bioresources through Novel Technologies” (the 9th CIGR VI-NZ 2015) that will be held at Massey University, Auckland, New Zealand from 16-20 November, 2015.

CIGR, established in 1930, is the largest international organisation in the global agricultural science and engineering sector, with its Section VI focusing on bioprocessing of food and biomaterials, and novel technologies for the evaluation of food quality.  This 9th CIGR VI-NZ 2015 International Technical Symposium will create a meeting place for agricultural and biosystem scientists, engineers and associated professional technologists from across the globe. It will cover recent scientific and technological advances in creating high value bioresources and consumer products. Key themes include novel research approaches and innovative engineering solutions for increasing sustainable production, improving nutritional quality of food and adding value to raw materials to enhance human well-being and confer environmental benefits.

Massey University Auckland, in partnership with NZIFST and the University of Auckland, is proudly organising and hosting this international Symposium. More details are available at:

We look forward to you joining us and know that you will have a productive and enjoyable visit to Auckland, the “City of Sails”, and to New Zealand.
