The fourth teaser for ICONIC 2018 covers the sub theme about Food Industry and Medical Science.

For Indonesians rice has always been an important part of our meal. Most of people don’t feel satisfied if they haven’t had rice in their meal. This leads to a high demand of rice. On the other side, the amount of rice fields in our country could not cover the demand and this will cause a higher number of rice imports.

Getting used to replace rice with other sources of carbohydrate that are available around us, like corn or wheat, is one alternative to prevent us from importing more rice. But what are the consequences? Which risk does it have? How do we socialize?

In ICONIC 2018 we will discuss your papers regarding such issues and many others. Make sure you submit yours within the deadline and contribute through your ideas!
