IYSC 2012 in photos

The first ever rice science conference specifically for young scientists was held in November this year. I didn't take photos during the first day because I was moderating a session in the morning and was presenting a paper in the afternoon. I started taking photos during the second day, when the panel discussion on the "excellence in rice science" and the paper competition was scheduled. 

During the competition's awarding ceremony, India's Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture and and Cooperation, Hon. Shri Ashish Bahuguna, graced the event before continuing on with his meetings and laboratory visits. One of the first scholars welcomed by IRRI, Reynaldo Lantin, was also on-hand during the celebration of 50 years of IRRI scholarship.
