Our short courses and the International Starch Technology Conference (ISTC) were offered using a new format in 2015 to better serve the starch processing industry. The Corn Wet Milling short course was followed by the 9th International Starch Technology Conference, and concluded with the Corn Ethanol Production short course.

The overall agenda can be found here.

A detailed tentative agenda can be found here.

We plan to offer both short courses again in February 2016. The 10th ISTC will be held in 2017. Dates to be announced soon.

                                  Science and Engineering for a Biobased Economy: S-1041 Multistate Research Committee:
                                  Corn and cereal grain processors are the first biorefineries. Each year, the USDA multistate research committee S-1041 holds an annual meeting with a symposium to generate ollaboration among researchers working on bioproducts, biofuels and biochemicals as well as developing educational materials.

From this mini-symposium, a prceedings is created.
