The 3rd LAPRW will be held in Montevideo, Uruguay from the 8th to the 11th may 2011. The objective of the workshop is to exchange information, experiences and strategies bringing together academia, industry and government. It is an unique opportunity to share in the same event lectures from top scientists in the field and to hear the opinion of the regulating offices from Latin America, USA and Europe in a key issue not only from an academic point , but also decisive for public health and global world trade of commodities.
