The 13th International Conference of the European Chitin Society – 8th Simposio de la Sociedad Iberoamericana de Quitina (EUCHIS-SIAQ 2017)—will be jointly held from 31 May to 3 June, 2017, in Seville, Spain, at the Faculty of Chemistry, located at the Reina Mercedes Science Campus of the University of Seville.
Supported by a strong international advisory board, we have designed the conference as a meeting point for young, junior and senior researchers, producers and developers of chitin/chitosan-based products from all over the word. The program of EUCHIS-SIAQ 2017 Congress aims at fostering communication between our Scientific Societies and between Science and Industry. The conference will offer a wide interdisciplinary exchange at the forefront of chitin/chitosan science with a strong presence of suppliers, manufacturers and end-users companies. A specific session with information on funding opportunities for researchers, companies and research-company consortium will be also held. The conference will be preceded by an Industrial Meeting to face up the Industry challenges that will be held in Madrid, and followed by the second edition of the Young Research Meeting to be held in Seville. Excellent speakers will present their results within individual sections of EUCHIS-SIAQ 2017. For all details please see http://www.chitin2017.com, where the full list of presenters is available, including Caroline Hoemann, Laurent David, Alessandro Gandini, Hermenegildo García, and many others.
Participants of the Conference are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Molecules.
