The International Symposium on Pre-Harvest Sprouting (ISPHSC) in Cereals convenes in different locations around the world every 3–4 years. The 1st ISPHSC was in Sweden in August 1975. Subsequent symposia were on a rotating basis in other countries including Detmold, Germany (1998); Kruger National Park, South Africa (2001); Norwich, England (2004) and Mendoza, Argentina (2007). The 12th ISPHSC was in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada from July 24–27, 2011. Around 85 participants from 16 countries attended the 12th ISPHSC. The convening of the 12th ISPHSC was possible through the joint support of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development, Barley Development Council, Alberta Barley Commission, Perten Instruments, Alberta Innovates Bio Solutions, Alberta Seed Growers’ Association, Brewing and Malting Research Institute, Canadian Grain Commission, International Society for Seed Science, Rahr Malting and Unity Scientific. On behalf of the organizing committees, I sincerely extend a big thank you to the sponsors of the 12th ISPHSC for their generous financial support.
