New Edition of ICAC Recorder Offers Summaries of WCRC Presentations
If you are a cotton scientist who wasn’t fortunate enough to be able to attend the seventh World Cotton Research Conference (WCRC) in Egypt last year, the ICAC and International Cotton Research Association (ICRA) are giving you the next best thing: summaries of the presentations delivered and access to the full presentations themselves.
The most recent edition of the ICAC Recorder, a free publication released at the end of December 2022, contains summary notes from the 10 plenary presentations made during the conference, as well as key highlights from the 98 presentations delivered in concurrent sessions and the 10 poster presentations.
It also includes a tribute to the USDA’s Dr Jodi Scheffler, the 2022 ICAC Researcher of the Year – the first woman to win the esteemed award.
If you need to take an even deeper dive into the information, the research papers presented at the WCRC-7 are now available as full publications in pdf form as a ‘book of papers’ and as PowerPoint presentations on the ICRA website. You can find them here.
WCRC-8 will be held in Uzbekistan in 2024, with representatives from the ICAC, ICRA and the Uzbekistan Organising Committee already making plans.

About the International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC)
Formed in 1939, the ICAC is an association of cotton producing, consuming and trading countries. It acts as a catalyst for change by helping member countries maintain a healthy world cotton economy; provides transparency to the world cotton market by serving as a clearinghouse for technical information on cotton production; and serves as a forum for discussing cotton issues of international significance. In addition, members can take advantage of the ICAC’s global network of cotton researchers, whose expertise covers the supply chain from farm to textile manufacturing, and have free access to its cutting-edge technologies like the voice-based app and virtual technology cotton training programme. Committed to ensuring cotton’s continued sustainability, the ICAC is the only intergovernmental commodity body covering cotton that is recognised by the United Nations.
