2–7 August 2020 XXVII International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy

Rome, Italy

The International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy (ICORS) started in 1969 and reached the twenty-seventh edition. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from different fields interested in discussing the most recent progresses in Raman spectroscopy. Attendees will range from leading experts to junior researchers and graduate students. ICORS meetings create a forum to discuss recent progress and emerging ideas in Raman spectroscopy and encourage informal contacts and discussions among all the participants. They also play an important role in maintaining a cohesive group of international researchers interested in Raman spectroscopy and related topics, whose interactions transcend the meetings and endure year-round.

ICORS XXVII edition will be held in Rome, at the “Sapienza” University, which holds the legacy of Enrico Fermi work. In fact there is a deep link between Rome and the Raman effect, dating back to 1926, when Enrico Fermi took over the chair of theoretical physics at the University of Rome, boosting the famous “via Panisperna group”. Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman got his Nobel Prize in 1930, for the effect that he first observed in liquids in 1928. The new discovery was highly inspirational for Franco Rasetti, the last survivor of the Panisperna group, who was the first to demonstrate Raman effect in gases (F. Rasetti, ‘‘Raman Effect in Gases,’’ Nature 123 (1929), 205). His observations provided the first experimental evidence that the model for the atomic nucleus constituted by protons and electrons is inadequate.

Beside the strictly scientific motivations, Rome offers an ideal surrounding for its uncountable mainstream attractions and lesser-known gems. We look forward to meeting you in Italy in 2020!

30 November–3 December 2020 3rd International Conference on Food Bioactives & Health

Parma, Italy

Dear Friends and Colleagues, it is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Food Bioactives & Health, that will be held from the 30 November to 3 December of 2020 in the amazing city of Parma, Italy. This third conference in the series comes after the great success of the previous meetings, held in Norwich in 2016 and in Lisbon in 2018. Both events were very well organized and were a great success. We are, therefore, committed to match these standards and are preparing what we are sure will be a unique event. The topics addressed by FBHC2020 have been broadened to cover a wide range of topics on food bioactives and health, including (poly)phenols, carotenoids, glucosinolates & other organosulfur compounds, fatty acids & sterols, polysaccharides, and peptides & protein. In addition, a session will be devoted to toxic compounds, an often overlooked topic that is important from a holistic perspective in the role of food bioactives and their impact on human health. Particular attention will be paid on transversal topics such as personalised nutrition, gut microbiota, dietary intake, and nutritional policy. The Conference aims to offer plenty of networking opportunities, providing the chance to interact with renowned scientists and to stimulate creative exchange among researchers. Young scientists will have a lot of opportunities to showcase their work and obtain feedback from experienced international scientist. June is a perfect time to visit Parma, a lively and cultural city, located in Northern Italy, that is surrounded by parks, vineyards, lakes and medieval castles. Most importantly, Parma is a “food city”. It has been recognised as UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy and hosts the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) headquarters. The congress year, 2020, will be a great time to visit Parma as it will be the Italian Capital of Culture and full of numerous special attractions. In addition, we are planning a “family friendly conference”, with organized activities for the children of delegates during the sessions, including "learning through playing” games focusing on healthy nutrition and lifestyle. We hope you will participate in what will be a memorable conference in the beautiful city of Parma! With best wishes, The Organizing Committee
