The topics of this symposium is “New paradigm for the future Animal –derived foods with the combination of traditional livestock & Foodtech’. There were many new research paradigms through 4th industrial revolution and our livestock is getting worse due to the “Neutral Carbon Policy” internationally. To cope with this current situation, we have excellent 4 plenary and keynote sessions, 1 government session and 8 concurrent sessions including 41 excellent speakers through the conference. I think that we may have more than 300 scholars, researchers, and graduate students from domestic and outside countries might attend this conference, and discuss the future trend for the animal derived foods with current research accomplishments.
