Dear colleagues and guests,

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee and the Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops, Novi Sad, the hosting institution, I feel truly honored and privileged to invite you to the 11th World Soybean Research Conference (WSRC11). The conference will take place from 6-11 September 2020, in Novi Sad, Serbia, one of the central hubs of economy, education, culture and science in the region of Southeast Europe. The opportunity to host this important scientific event for the first time in Europe, in the city of Novi Sad, is a special honor and a much-appreciated acknowledgement of the enhanced international cooperation fostered by the Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops.

The Local Organizing Committee and the Scientific Committee devote their efforts toward creating a stimulating scientific, social and cultural experience for all our conference attendees. Our intention is to encourage the global soybean community, including the leading academic and industry experts, stakeholders and students, to interact and initiate discussions and debates, aiming to give answers and raise new questions. The soybean community can successfully overcome the current and future challenges only if we change and broaden our perspective. We welcome all of you to participate in the conference and invite you to contribute to the program, with sincere hopes that it will be a week full of intellectual excitement and memorable moments.

I invite you to enjoy and experience both our Scientific Program and the traditional Serbian hospitality. At the crossroads between East and West, South and North, you will find open hearts and minds, natural beauty, vibrant night life, cultural events, and gastronomic magic of the Balkan cuisine.
