To take place in Cairo from 1 to 3 December of 2019, the conference will be an opportunity to present and discuss the newest researches related to food, nutrition and sustainable agriculture as well as to shed light on their relationships with the industry. The scientific committee welcomes contributions from academics, researchers and interested participants. 


Aim and Scope of FNSSA 2019

The conference will focus on the recent trends and discoveries in the area of functional foods, nutraceuticals, food safety, food security, sustainable agriculture, and agro-food engineering and technology.

It will offer a unique opportunity for researchers in academia and private sector, youthful scientists across the globe, experts, founders, CEOs’, SMEs, industrials, and business delegates to meet, network and publish the latest results and advances in the field. This exchange of knowledge will provide researchers, practitioners, educators, and investors with the most recent innovations, trends, and challenges in the field while presenting solutions to achieving food security and a sustainable agricultural development.

The selected contributions from this conference will be published in Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation (ASTI), a book series by Springer. Moreover, authors of the best papers will be selected for publication in special issues of a number of indexed journals by Springer.

Conference Themes

1. Food & Nutrition

This track will discuss the metabolism of the various nutrients and their nutritive value. It will focus on functional foods, probiotics and similar products that may confer health benefits when consumed.

Similarly, the process of food fortification through vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and botanicals, and many other products such as dietary supplements that come in a variety of forms play an important role in nutrition. Nutraceuticals, which are pharmaceutical-grades and dietary supplements, are a hybrid of nutrition and pharmaceuticals that have introduced a new era of medicine and health.

The rising awareness of consumers toward the health benefits of foods and their nutritional benefits for potential health enhancement and disease prevention is the driving force of the global functional food and nutraceutical market, thus, making it an essential discussion topic.

Track Scientific Commitee:

Ehab Khedr (Egypt), Morsi EL Soda (Egypt), and Nayra Shaker Mehanna (Egypt)


2. Food Safety and Control

Food can transmit disease from person to person as well as serve as a growth medium for bacteria that can cause food poisoning. Every year death of approximately 2 million people occurs due to unsafe food. Food safety is a significant public health issue.

This topic discusses handling, preparation and storage of food in order to prevent foodborne illness. An effective food legislation and food control is required for every nation to promote a safety food supply to protect consumers from contaminated foods. Quality control is a process through which a business seeks to ensure that product quality is maintained or improved with either reduced or zero errors. Quality control requires the business to create an environment in which both management and employees strive for perfection.

Track Scientific Commitee:

Ibrahim ELSayed (Egypt), Norhasinda Zawawi (Malaysia), and Srinivasan Damodaran (USA)


3. Industry 4.0 for Agro-Food Industry Development

Agro-Food Engineering & Technology is leading a new revolution in sustainable agriculture and food industry. Food technology is the conversion of agricultural products into food or of one form of food into other forms.

This track focuses on food technology derived into new methods and systems to create new food products as well as keep them safe.  Agricultural Engineering  increasingly relies on emerging technologies to expand food production. With a focus on machinery, Irrigation, renewable energy and development, it will lead to efficient food security and crop production.

Track Scientific Commitee:

Abd Allah Zein ElDein (Egypt), Albert Jan Dijkstra (Netherlands), Huda El-Kateb (UK), Samir M. Ismail (Egypt), Saphwan Al-Assaf (UK), and Tamer Gamal (Egypt)


4. Agro-Food Business and Food security

Food Security is the condition in which all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences. The three determinants of food security are food availability, food access, and food utilization and depending upon them are its nutritional impacts.

Agro-food business is the business of agricultural production and food processing.  It includes agrichemicals, breeding, crop circulation, farm machinery, processing, and seed accumulation, food production, fast food as well as marketing and retail sales. The agribusiness systems pathway includes occupations involved in the coordination of all activities that contribute to the production, processing, marketing, distribution, financing and development of agricultural commodities, plant and animal products, and other natural resources.

Track Scientific Commitee:

Dina C. Magnaye (Philippines), Giulia Bartezzaghi (Italy), and Pietro Columba (Italy)


5. Water, Food & Energy

This track enables a discussion on how water–energy–food nexus can support food security and sustainable agriculture. Population growth, rapid urbanization, changing diets and economic development are just some of the factors driving increased demand for water, energy and food. Agriculture is the largest consumer of the world's freshwater resources, and more than one-quarter of the energy used globally is expended on food production and supply. Concurrently, the demands for water, food and energy are increasing within cities, and unless a balance is struck the livability of these cities will soon be compromised. Thus, solutions such as solar irrigation as a reliable, non-costly and clean-energy solution are presented.

The demand for environmental resources is increasing globally as populations and incomes grow. Undoubtedly, there is a need to increase production to meet future demand, but it is also necessary to make better use of the food that is already being produced. Food losses and waste are a missed opportunity to improve global food and nutrition security, a squandering of environmental resources, and a contributor to climate change. Agro-Food Engineering & Technology pay attention to how to transfer Agro-Food waste to added value products and energy.

Track Scientific Commitee:

Arruje Hameed (Pakistan), Maria Antonella (Italy), and Mohamed Nabil (Egypt)


6. Sustainable Agriculture

This session focuses on healthy environment, economic profitability, social and economic equity through sustainable agriculture focus.

It aims to sustain farmers, resources, and communities by promoting profitable methods and farming practices.

In the present, its main goal is to meet society's needs without the need of compromising the ability of future generations in order to meet their own needs.

Sustainable agriculture is the way to sustain resources, profit and promote farming practices. The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet society’s needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In this track, economic profitability, social and economic quality and a healthy environment are considered. Approaches to farming such as integrated agricultural production, in hopes of promoting environmentally friendly farming practices, are presented.

This track emphasizes on agricultural production systems modelling improvement and incorporating new capabilities enabling analyses in the domains of greenhouse gas emissions, soil carbon changes, ecosystem services, food security, pests and disease losses, livestock and climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Your Trip To Egypt

Egypt is a spectacularly beautiful country filled with cultural gems.  A country will be lucky enough to experience and check off your bucket list. Cairo is the capital of Egypt and the largest city in Africa, with a name that means "the victorious city." It is located on both banks of the River Nile near the head of the river's delta in northern Egypt and has been settled for more than 6,000 years, serving as the capital of numerous Egyptian kingdoms. Cairo is known locally as "Misr," which is the Arabic name for Egypt, because of its centrality to Egyptian life.

The following are some suggestions of places to visit while you are in Cairo, Egypt.

  1. Pyramids of Giza & Sphinx

Visiting the most ancient of the Seven Wonders of the World (and the only wonder that survived the ages) should be on every bucket list. For me, it certainly was a dream come true.

you really have to visit the Sphinx as well. It marks the entrance to an ancient mortuary temple and many myths are told about its construction. Some claim it’s over 10,000 years old, while others believe it was built by the Pharao of the second pyramid, Khafra, around 2,500 BC. As I am no Egyptologist, I stuck to admiring the ancient landmark.

  1. Egyptian Museum

There is no place in the world where you will find more artifacts from ancient Egypt than in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Located right on the famous Tahrir Square the colonial building houses the golden hoard from the tomb of Tutankhamun and so many other old Egyptian artifacts.

  1. Khan el-Khalili (shopping quarter)

There is no finer place to go shopping than the Khan el-Kahlili district in the historic center of Islamic Cairo. It is not only incredibly pretty with all its mosques and ancient arches, it’s also a buzzing area with souvenir shops, restaurants, street cafes and quite a history. For me, it’s one of the most fun things to do in Cairo at night.

  1. Cairo Citadel

Considerably younger, but still a must-see in Cairo is the Cairo Citadel sitting on the hills on the east side of the Nile. It once served as a fortress and now houses a couple of beautiful mosques and the National Military Museum of Egypt.

our first and foremost reason to go there should be visiting the Mosque of Muhammad Ali (not the boxer!) or Alabaster Mosque how it is often called. It’s the grandest sacred building in the city and quite the iconic sight.
