It is with pleasure that I welcome you to the convocation of CAETS 2018 that will take place in Montevideo, Uruguay, on September 11, 12 and 14, 2018.

Under the CAETS motto of “Engineering a Better World”, that year there will be a two days conference focused on Engineering and Sustainable Development of Agricultural and Forestry Systems. Top-level international experts will present and discuss topics such as sustainability of agriculture and forest products, including topics such as genetics, new materials, transport and logistics, second and third generation biofuels based on non-food grains and forest products.

The CAETS 2018 Conference will take place for the first time in South America, in Montevideo, Uruguay, from September 11 to 14, 2018 and aims to present the state of the art of engineering and agriculture and forestry sustainability and, at the same time, offers wide opportunities for debate and discussion on how innovations will contribute to the advancement of the agriculture and forestry products chain in a sustainable manner.

The International Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences (CAETS) and the National Academy of Engineering of Uruguay (ANIU) cordially invite you to attend this Call and the Conference and contribute with your knowledge and experience in the different engineering disciplines.
