Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing and scientific committees, I would like to invite you to the First International Symposium entitled "Moringa: A Decade of Advances in Research and Development." This meeting will be held at the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria Hotel, Manila, Philippines from November 15-18, 2015.

The overall goal of this meeting is to bring together about 300 junior and senior scientists from the international community for a four-day symposium to share new knowledge and information on Moringa, the multi-purpose tree, and to promote the sustainability of its production, processing, utilization, marketing and trade as well as consumption for health and vitality, industry profitability and competitiveness in the context of globalization. The program includes invited speakers, poster sessions, student/fellow presentations, interactive discussion sessions, and free time for informal interaction with colleagues.

The upcoming symposium will continue the tradition of presenting and discussing the latest advances in Moringa research, development and industry in a wonderful location, with a relaxed and a collegial atmosphere.

Participants who may have special needs are asked to make their requests known to the organizers as soon as possible so that every effort can be made to address these needs. In addition, scientists from any discipline who may have an interest in the topics covered in this symposium are also encouraged to attend to enhance the quality of the discussions and interactions.

This first announcement will provide you with general information, the scientific program and important schedules of this symposium.

We look forward to seeing you in November 2015 in Manila, Philippines and thank you in advance for participating and contributing to the success of this event with your scientific contributions.

Chairman and Convener of the International Symposium
