Second Round Announcement
With population growth and the rapid development of economy and society, global climate change has become a common challenge for human society. Importantly, global climate change caused a profound influence on grassland ecosystems and sustainable development of economy and society in pastoral areas. In order to further promote communication and cooperation among grassland science scientists in China, Japan, Korea, and neighboring countries, as well as to exert grassland functioning in ecology, production and living, we pleased to announce that the 5th China-Japan-Korea Grassland Conference will be held in Northeast Normal University (Changchun, China) during August 20th - 24th in 2014.
Since “The Japan-Korea-China Symposium on Grassland Agriculture and Animal Production” was held at Hiroshima in 2004, the China-Japan-Korea Grassland Conference has been strongly supported and recognized by the scholars in the field of grassland science from Northeast Asian countries. The meeting aims to discuss current hot spots, important issues and difficult problems of grassland science and related fields, as well as to analysis and forecast changes in multi-functionality of Northeast Asian grasslands, which are driven by climate change and human activities. We hope the conference will attribute to the establishment of multi-level, multi-structure and multi-functional grassland farming system and the achievement of synergistic development of ecological, economic, and social coupling system.
The organizing committee cordially invited you to attend the conference. We are looking forward to meet you in Changchun - the Spring City of Northern China.
