The 4th International Conference of Asian Allelopathy Society
September 8-10, 2018, Tokyo, Japan.
On behalf of the Volunteer Group for the Fourth Asian Allelopathy Conference, we sincerely invite all scientists, students and others in Asia and around the world to the Fourth International Conference of Asian Allelopathy Society (AAS) that will take place at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology in Tokyo, Japan, September 8-10, 2018. The conference will provide an excellent opportunity to exchange the latest development in allelopathy research and application and to establish collaborative research among scientists the field of allelopathy in Asia and around the world.
Allelopathy research in Asia has grown very rapidly in the past three decades. Allelopathy plays an important role in the management of natural and agricultural ecosystems. Asian countries are geographically connected with each other and we share many similarities in climate, plant species, agricultural, and cultural traditions. The ASIAN ALLELOPATHY SOCIETY (AAS) is a non-profit organization exclusively for scientific purposes, specifically to promote the (i) Understanding of allelopathy and (ii) Collaboration in Allelopathy Research between Asian scientists and those from other countries. The society was established in 2009 and the first international conference was held in Guangzhou of China during December 18-22, 2009. The second international conference was held in Chandigarh of India during December 14-18, 2012. The third international conference was held in Fuzhou, China, from October 30 to November 2, 2015. Compared to these successful conferences, we are not sure for good preparation, accommodations and program, but we would like to invite all people who have interest in allelopathy, and hope to meet old friends, find new friends, and we hope that this conference will provide something new for the future of our sciences.
