The International Temperate Rice Conference (ITRC) is a global initiative dedicated to bringing temperate rice growing countries together for the discussion, promotion and advancement of research, technology and innovation in the field. This initiative enables information exchange among leading scientists and other stakeholders engaged in sustainable rice production in temperate zones of the globe.

ITRC 2024 will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Marriott New Orleans Hotel on Canal Street in the Historic French Quarter, June 5-8, 2024. The meeting will bring together rice scientists and others from around the globe to provide for exchange of information, cooperative planning, and networking to facilitate all aspects of rice research, extension work, supply chain dynamics and all other areas of production. Past meeting locations have included Australia (2), California, Italy, Uruguay, Thailand and Brazil (most recently in 2020). The meeting has grown through the years and includes keynote speakers, symposia, research discipline panels and poster sessions. The research discipline panels include Breeding and Genomics, Plant Protection (Entomology and Pathology), Culture and Soil Science, Weed Science and Postharvest (Economics and Quality).
