Applicability of Phytronix Laser Diode Thermal Desorption (LDTD®) for pesticide testing laboratories will be presented. Toxicology Strategies for Compound Development (Sponsored by Huntingdon Life Sciences) Key experience will be outlined in responding to new regulatory requirements for toxicokinetic data, including sampling methods, study designs, and endocrine disruption testing regimes. Benefits and potential pit falls will be discussed to aid interpretation and decision making. Anaerobic Conditions of Soils During the Conduct of Laboratory Environmental Fate Studies (Sponsored by EAG) We will explore the ability of various soils to attain strong reducing conditions, and factors that may influence the level of anaerobicity reached during the study. Proposed study designs, test system selection and/or preparation strategies for achieving the best anaerobic conditions in soils will be discussed. A Tale of Two Countries: Herbicide Resistant Weeds in the U.S. and Australia (Sponsored by Syngenta) Resistance is a looming threat to USA field crop production and changes are needed now. Dr. Stephen Powles, Director of the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative, will speak about their painful lessons and how they can help deal with the American resistance threat. Post-merger Integration of R&D: Key Steps to Realizing its Full Potential (Sponsored by Battelle) David Nicholson, Global Head R&D, Bayer CropScience AG, will discuss (1) challenges in successfully integrating R&D activities following a merger where cultural differences must be considered, and (2) determining the key processes needed to realize the melded team’s full R&D potential. 18:00 – 21:00 – Dinner Seminar Addressing Future Challenges: Crop Protection Research Director’s Forum (Sponsored by Syngenta) Today, crop protection research is facing major challenges such as reduced innovation rate, weed and pest resistance, higher regulatory safety margins, cost-effectiveness and overall increasing R&D costs. Leading agrochemicals companies will discuss how they are addressing present challenges and future trends. TUESDAY AUGUST 12 12:00 - 13:30 – Luncheon Seminars WEDNESDAY AUGUST 13 12:00 - 13:30 – Luncheon Seminars Endocrine Active Substances and Disruptors: Global Policy Challenges and Promotion of Risk-Based Regulation (Sponsored by CropLife International) Do you know what is in your lunch? Some cereals, fruits, and even your coffee may contain endocrine active substances. So, how should these products be regulated? CropLife International will discuss the increasing global concern on endocrine active substances and disruptors, and discuss the importance of risk-based, common sense regulation. Leads from Crop Protection Research Against Malaria and Neglected Diseases (Sponsored by BASF) Overlap between crop protection and infectious disease control can be exploited to improve both. A variety of compounds active against agronomic pests have been examined systematically against pathogens causing malaria and neglected diseases, with several promising leads. Zorvec™: The First Member of a Novel Class of Oomycete Fungicides (Sponsored by DuPont) This luncheon seminar will present a technical overview of the characteristics of oxathiapiprolin (formerly “DPX-QGU42”), a novel fungicide recently discovered by DuPont. This seminar will complement other Congress talks and posters by reviewing more specifically the disease control characteristics of the molecule. Why Authentic Reference Standards are Essential for “Unknown” Identification: A Case Study (Sponsored by Ricerca) Despite the additional time and expense required, there is no substitute for authentic reference standards for determining identity. We will present a case study of how inaccurate determination of unknowns occurred in a metabolism study and the problems associated with inconclusive compound identification. From the Laboratory to the Field: Enhancing the Scope of Environmental Fate Studies (Sponsored by Huntingdon Life Sciences) Aquatic and terrestrial case studies will show how higher-tier studies offer an opportunity to enhance risk assessment outcomes in addition to determining environmental fate endpoints. Examples will show how robust testing methods can address targeted regulatory issues in a specific, timely and cost effective manner. Note: The content of each seminar has been organized by the sponsor, and no endorsement of products or opinions by the Congress or Congress organizers is implied. Post-Congress Agricultural Field Tour FRIDAY, AUGUST 15 DATE & TIME Friday, August 15 7:00 am - 5:45 pm The post-conference ag excursion provides Congress attendees an opportunity to directly observe the diversity, productivity and beauty of California agriculture. The tour will be an excellent way to synthesize many of the scientific, regulatory policy and international trade topics discussed at IUPAC 2014. WHERE Buses will depart and return to the Marriott Marquis (Conference Hotel) Set against a backdrop of fields, vineyards and orchards, presentations will span production practices, pest management, environmental and regulatory challenges faced by the agricultural community in California. PLANNED FIELD STOPS Processing tomatoes, wine grapes/winery, nut crops, tree fruit and rice. Growers, commodity organizations, cooperative extension personnel, research scientists and local Agri-Business experts will make presentations in a variety of agricultural settings. Field stops are planned in nut crops, rice, tomatoes and a vineyard. The highly-regarded IR-4 Minor Use Research Program at UC Davis will be featured and attendees will observe the Port of Oakland, a major hub of international trade. The intense one-day tour will be fast-paced with moderate levels of walking during a typically warm day in the East Bay and San Joaquin Valley. Please prepare accordingly and remember to pack comfortable clothing, walking shoes and a hat. Organized by: AgBusiness Resources www.iupac2014.org/social COST $85.00 USD (includes lunch, refreshments and transportation) ON-LINE REGISTRATION Tour sign-up via meeting registration process. SPACE IS LIMITED The agricultural tour event will accommodate up to 100 participants drawn from attendees at the conference, their spouses and guests. INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE World Crop Protection Chemistry Leadership Institute An Interactive Workshop Developing Global Leaders for Research, Regulation and Stewardship of Crop Protection Chemistry in the 21st Century ALL IUPAC 2014 DELEGATES INVITED The Challenge Workshop Style The protection of crops based on chemistry continues to increase in sophistication, together with the globalization of the chemical, seed, and food trade. At the same time, societal expectations for stewardship, human safety, environmental protection, and agricultural sustainability with respect to use of crop protection chemistry tools are also increasing. The workshop will include a number of short presentations during the morning session focused on identifying crop protection chemistry megatrends requiring the greatest attention and examining the current state of crop protection chemistry leadership development efforts. These trends pose a unique array of challenges for research and regulatory leaders. It is essential that the next generation of leaders is trained to take into account the often divergent demands that are presented in ensuring a sufficient supply of food and fiber products to meet world needs. Perspectives will be shared by noteworthy experts from diverse countries and organizational affiliations. The afternoon will include several breakout discussion sessions designed to capture ideas and proposals for how current deficiencies and future challenges for crop protection chemistry leadership development may best be addressed. Workshop Objectives When The purpose of the workshop is to bring together global crop protection chemistry leadership from academia, industry, government and NGO’s to: Sunday, August 10, 2014, 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. • Examine the current state of affairs with respect to research, regulatory and stewardship leadership development • Discuss unmet needs and future changes in crop protection chemistry that will challenge current approaches • Develop a set of specific recommendations for ensuring that tomorrow’s crop protection chemistry leaders have a well-rounded, science-based and globally informed approach Where Marriott Marquis Hotel, Nob Hill C/D Room San Francisco, USA For More Information Contact Dr. John Unsworth ([email protected]) Chair, IUPAC Advisory Committee on Crop Protection Chemistry Come join crop protection chemistry stakeholders from around the world to chart future directions for the development of the next generation of leaders!
