ISFA 2024

International Symposium on Food and Agro-Biodiversity

Semarang, 2-4 October 2024

4th ISFA at Glance

International Symposium on Food and Agro-biodiversity (ISFA) is a triennial international symposium that is organized by the Faculty of Animal and Agricultural Sciences, Diponegoro University, and Indonesian Food Technologists (IFT). The first and second ISFA were conducted face to-face in 2014 and 2017, attracting many researchers to discuss the up-to-date issues in food and agriculture. Whereas the third symposium was offered as an online conference in 2021. It was delayed from the original plan in 2020 as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the interest of the academic community in ISFA is always high, as can be seen in the participation of previous ISFAs with more than 120 delegates joining each symposium. The majority of the submitted papers have also been published in reputable proceedings such as Procedia (Elsevier), IOP conference series, and AIP conference proceedings. Therefore, the submitted papers are not limited to discussion during the symposium but also make further echo in literature. The 4th ISFA this time will carry the theme of “for healthy, affordable and sustainable food”.
