Dear Colleagues and Friends,

In the past ICC had a dedicated series of ICC conferences to contribute to the nature of our Association, cereal science and technology. The series started with its 1st ICC Conference in Vienna, Austria in 1956, the year after ICC’s founding and continued more or less every other year till 2002 where the 18th ICC Conference targeted novel raw materials, technologies and products in Budapest, Hungary.

With the 19th ICC Conference 2019 we want to revive this long-lasting tradition in sharing the latest developments in cereal science and technology. The programme of this Conference will be a great forum of discussions between ICC Members and food scientists, producers as well as product developers outside the “ICC family”.

This Conference will be the place to learn, collaborate, network and build bridges from cereal science to technology and vice versa. By creating a better understanding for the hot topics in the different areas long lasting bridges shall be built to contribute together to the urgent needs in the cereal business today.

ICC19 will cover all aspects in the field such as production, processing, nutrition, analysis, new products and technologies, food safety and quality assurance including state-of-the art reviews by authoritative speakers and updates on new developments and research in international projects as well as academia. ICC19 offers a wide forum for all disciplines and sectors involved in cereal research, production and utilisation, where also new technologies practically can be presented.

The 19th ICC Conference will be organised together with the University of Natural Research and Life Science Vienna, Department of Food Science and Technology, and both organisations would like to extend a warm welcome to all participants from all over the world to join this ICC Conference in the beautiful city of Vienna.

We look forward to welcoming you in April 2019!

About the organisers

ICC - The International Association for Cereal Science and Technology is an independent, internationally recognised organisation of experts specialising in the milling of wheat and other cereals, bread making, and the production of other cereal-based foods from around the world. In more recent times ICC has expanded its focus to address issues that contribute to improved food quality, food safety and food security for the health and well-being of all people. An apolitical forum for all cereal scientists and technologists, ICC is a publisher of international standard methods and a scienific journal; an organiser of major national and international events in the field; a promoter of international cooperation on a global, regional and national level. Furthermore ICC plays a significant role in international research projects.


BOKU – the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences with the Department of Food Science and Technology performs basic and applied research in order to ensure and improve the resource efficient production of high quality foods. A product driven focus area deals with research related to plant-based products whereas a process driven approach includes aspects such as the recovery, processing and gentle preservation of food ingredients. Cooperation with industrial partners ensures the transfer of the research outcome as well as the support in the area of product and process development. The working group significantly contributes to the interdisciplinary education of future food technologists at BOKU.
