Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, I am truly honored to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2nd ICATD 2018, following the success of the 1st ICATD conference in 2016.

The needs for agromedicine research for the improvements on occupational and environmental health and safety in agriculture are growing. The challenges in tropical disease are also increasing that requires a global solution to prevention and elimination. This event would facilitate dissemination of research on this topic, and surely, it will be an outstanding place for networking opportunities to discuss interesting ideas and develop the fruitful project in the future. As a major goal of this event, we hope that it can be an excellent chance for coordinating new partnerships which advance collaboration in the research field as well as the career of all participants.

The ICATD provide an opportunity to network with others with similar interest, to hear and discuss the fuse of acknowledging of experts and to present your own work through an oral and poster presentation.

The 2nd ICATD iss held on October 20th-21st, 2018 in Jember, Indonesia. Jember is a city full of wonder located in the East Java province, Indonesia. Jember has unique culture called “Pandalungan” that is merged from Javanese and Maduranese Culture. Jember area is dominated by farming, gardening, and fishing, therefore Jember has a beautiful view of mountains and beaches. Kawah ijen with blue fire is one of the popular destinations for international tourists. Papuma Beach has beautiful white sands and lovely sunset and you have the opportunity to visit the beach by our city tour program. It is my hope that you get a chance to explore Jember and its surrounding and enjoy the atmosphere of our city. 

It is a great privilege for me to serve as the chair of the 2nd ICATD and it is my hope that this international event will expand our horizon in agromedicine and you will enjoy the conference. I am looking forward to seeing you (again) at the conference!

Warm regards,
