Registration Announcement for Virtual ICoMST/RMC

Join us for the first-ever AMSA virtual experience, where science and inspiration meet.

AMSA will be welcoming the world's meat science community to the 66th International Congress of Meat Science and Technology and 73rd Reciprocal Meat Conference (ICoMST/RMC) August 3-6, 2020, via an exclusively virtual event.

First and foremost, we value the global meat science community. We look forward to our annual collaborations at ICoMST and RMC to learn about the newest developments in meat science, and to connect with our colleagues and friends from all over the world. There is no question that it is the people that make these events impactful through their participation and engagement. Even though the ICoMST and RMC will be virtual, this principle will not change!

This virtual experience is a landmark opportunity to network and learn from colleagues around the globe. During this event, attendees will have the chance to discuss numerous topics relevant to the meat industry, including current research and development, food safety, meat quality, alternative proteins, microbiome applications, responsible use of natural resources, and contemporary developments in automation. Our contributing speakers include academic, government, and industry scientists.

The 2020 ICoMST and RMC will include four days of intensive technical and educational sessions from leading international industry experts on a variety of topics. The program will consist of headliner presentations, keynote sessions, concurrent sessions, and reciprocation sessions, offering the opportunity to dialogue on important world meat industry topics. The synergy of a joint ICoMST and RMC event will be exciting. Your engagement is a critical ingredient needed to create an experience that fosters innovation, enthusiasm, and progress for meat science, meat scientists, and the meat industry. Please join us!
