We welcome you to the International Conference on Emerging Technologies in Agricultural and Food Engineering: ETAE 2016, to be held at IIT Kharagpur. It will be an excellent opportunity for academicians, researchers, practicing engineers to meet, exchange ideas & information and learn from each other. In the growing need of higher food production and sustainability, the role of agricultural and food engineers have become very crucial. Further, maximizing production also requires optimized use of essential input like seeds, fertilizers, nutrients, machine hours and overall energy efficiency in the production system. The conference encompasses all the related fields of study, while inviting research papers for presentation and discussion. Selected good quality papers will also be published in the form of a reference book with ISBN number.
