THE AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY OF SUGAR CANE TECHNOLOGISTS LIMITED
The Australian Society of Sugar Cane Technologists Limited (ASSCT) is a leading technical society which provides a forum for scientists, engineers, chemists, institutions, farmers, companies and individuals interested in sugar cane technology to publish and discuss current developments as well researching recorded technology. The ASSCT enjoys the world-wide reputation of premier repository for the public domain technology of the Australian Sugar Industry.
The ASSCT conducts an annual Conference with more than 80 peer-refereed technical papers and posters to introduce current RD&E projects and industry practices and to promote discussions of all aspects of sugar cane and cane sugar technology. The Conference venue rotates among the sugar cities in Queensland and northern New South Wales and attracts around 400 delegates from Australia and overseas. In addition to the technical sessions, a comprehensive partners’ program, technical site visits and excursions together with social highlights are always included in the program.
An Industrial Equipment Exhibition, co-ordinated by the ASSCT, showcases the wide range of goods and services pertinent to the sugar sector in conjunction with the Conference. The ASSCT Executive Committee, which runs the Society, is composed of the President, Senior Vice-president, Junior Vice-president, Honorary General Secretary together with the Chairmen and Secretaries of the three sections. The Executive meets during each Conference and is also responsible for determining the final form of the official programme, the programming of the technical sessions and the general arrangements associated with conducting the Conference. Awards and Bursaries are also presented at the concluding session of the Annual Conference.
