Last year's inaugural event was a resounding success, featuring presentations from a raft of industry experts from the likes of Danone, Yakult, and DuPont, and esteemed academics from across the globe.
This year's event will take place at the Hilton on Orchard Road from October 17 to 19.
NutraIngredients-Asia Editor-in-Chief Gary Scattergood said: "I'm thrilled that our Probiota summit, which continues to be so successful in Europe and the US, is returning to Singapore after last year's great first event...
"Probiota has always been about connecting science and business in probiotics and prebiotics — providing that central point of exchange — and we are excited about what we have in store our for the event later this year with our partner, the International Probiotics Association."
Researchers and those engaged in all aspects of microbiome science in academia, industry and consumer health are now being urged to submit abstracts to the scientific committee.
Scattergood added: "We are looking for abstracts presenting the latest state-of-the-art developments related to all aspects of prebiotic, probiotic and microbiome science relevant to human health, well-being, consumers and industry. We are particularly interested in reports from human intervention studies."
Presentations and posters
All abstracts submitted will be reviewed by the scientific committee. Successful authors will be invited to present their work either as an oral presentation or a poster at Probiota Asia.
