Do you want to present your cutting edge research or state-of-the-art development in the prebiotic, probiotic or microbiome area to a room full of industry leading experts and top academics? If so, you only have until tomorrow to submit your scientific abstracts for the upcoming IPA World Congress + Probiota in Barcelona.

The scientific committee of the IPA World Congress + Probiota 2018​ is calling for submission of abstracts for this year's event. Don’t miss your chance to present! Deadline for entries is 24th November 2017.

Organized by the publishers of NutraIngredients, in partnership with the International Probiotics Association (IPA), the IPA World Congress + Probiota 2018​ will combine the latest insights from science, regulation and business to provide delegates with the ultimate event to bridge the gap between the worlds of business and scientific research.

Want to get involved in the IPA World Congress + Probiota 2018? 

Moving to Barcelona for its 2018 edition, the congress will explore the frontier of pre-, probiotic and microbiome science, and how that is applied in the commercial world for food and nutraceutical players everywhere.

We want you!

We are particularly interested in reports from human intervention studies and welcome abstracts from those engaged in all aspects of microbiome science in academia, industry and consumer health, particularly those representing successful academia-industry interactions.

All abstract submissions will be reviewed by the Probiota Scientific Committee made up of leading experts from the fields of pre- and probiotics.

Successful abstracts will be presented as either oral presentations or posters at the event February 7-9 in Barcelona, Spain.

Furthermore, those whose abstracts are accepted will receive a 50% discount on the delegate place.

Early-phase, novel, or state-of-the-art research or promising ideas covering the following topics are highly encouraged to submit abstracts:

  • Host-microbe interactions in health and disease, including preclinical and clinical studies evaluating pre- and probiotic interventions
  • Application and development of “-omics” approaches in biomarker discovery, including identification of potential pre- and probiotic strains. Research identifying strain-specific effects of probiotics for health and wellbeing, including mechanism of action and bioactive discovery and isolation
  • Early findings from large scale research projects and clinical trials
  • Innovations and novel ideas in the areas of production processes, delivery, formulation and shelf-life
  • Consumer and market insights, including population research, trends and threats, commercial packaging and marketing
  • Human intervention studies

Where applicable the potential for commercial application of the research should be highlighted to support the Probiota aims of bridging the interface between academia and industry.
