The event brought together more than 180 participants from more than 20 countries from 5 continents and provided opportunities for both young and senior scientists and industry representatives for networking and exchanging knowledge about grains and derived products. It also marked the 20th anniversary of AISTEC which happened to be in conjunction with the 60th anniversary of ICC.

The Conference offered participants an outstanding scientific program with 8 scientific sessions and 42 speeches by speakers from all corners of the globe and 138 posters. The scientific sessions drew participants' attention to specific important issues, such as whole grains, gluten-free products, fortification of bakery products, health effects of innovative cereal products, crop and product safety, as well as methods of analysis, regulatory and labelling matters, consumer acceptance, etc. In general, the event indicated that significant progress has been made to guarantee crop sustainability, develop tools to forecast yields and quality, as well as new technologies for producing healthy and safe grain products.

The volume collects 77 papers that have been presented as oral communications or posters at the ICC/AISTEC Conference in Milan and have been reviewed for publication by the Conference Editorial Board.
