Dear all,
We are looking back on a very successful 2nd Conference on Agriculture in an Urbanizing Society in Rome. We had over 370 subscriptions for the conference from 60 countries, interesting key notes and lively discussions in the 24 working groups. We are sure many new contacts and networks have been established during this conference.
Our community is growing and the topic agriculture in an urbanizing society is gaining more and more attention.
We are very glad to announce that Professor Sergio Schneider, of the University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, has offered to host the third Conference on Agriculture in an Urbanizing Society in Brazil in the year 2018. Probably in August or September.
So please note this date in your agenda’s, anticipate on presenting your work at this conference, if possible, write it in future proposals and please spread the word on this conference in your respective networks so our community can keep on growing.
We are looking forward on meeting you all again in 2018 in Brazil!

On behalf of the scientific programme committee and the local organizing committee of the conference in Rome,
Andries Visser and Gianluca Brunori
