25–27 September 2019 Nutrients 2019 - Nutritional Advances in the Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease
We are pleased to announce our first international conference Nutrients 2019 - Nutritional Advances in the Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease. The conference is organized by the MDPI open-access journal Nutrients (Impact Factor 4.196) and will be held as a three-day event in Barcelona, Spain, from September 25‒27, 2019.
Chronic diseases are increasing throughout the developed and developing world. A significant contributor to the burgeoning rates of chronic disease is diet, with some dietary components contributing to disease development, and others being protective. We invite researchers, food industry representatives, policy makers, and others with an interest in the impacts of diet on chronic disease to join us for what will be an exciting event.
The conference will host a number of internationally renowned speakers, and invites submissions for oral presentations and posters. All presenters at the conference will be encouraged to submit a full manuscript of their presentation for consideration for publication in a Special Issue of Nutrients.
We hope to see you in the vibrant and exciting city of Barcelona in September 2019.
Professor Lluis Serra-Majem (Editor-in-Chief of Nutrients and President of the Spanish Academy of Nutrition and Food Sciences)

3–6 September 2018 The 26th International ICFMH Conference - FoodMicro 2018
Henry Ford Building of the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany
The 26th International ICFMH Conference - FoodMicro 2018 will take place in the Henry Ford Building of the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, from 3rd to 6th September 2018.
The field of food microbiology has changed rapidly in the last decades and new methods help scientists all over the world to master the challenges of the 21st century. Socioeconomic changes necessitate changes in food production, supply, and handling. Previously unknown problems concerning spoilage and transmission of pathogens occur worldwide. Moreover, functional and novel foods gain importance and probiotic bacteria are in the focus of international research.
To merge these different research areas “Biodiversity of Foodborne Microbes” has been chosen as the common theme of the conference. Participants will be offered an excellent programme, demonstrating scientific diversity and subject depth. This will be achieved by utilizing the scientific expertise of the selected national and international committees, including the members of the International Committee on Food Microbiology and Hygiene (ICFMH).

7–9 September 2015 The 5th World Sustainability Forum
Centre for Teaching and Research of the University Hospital of Basel
2015 is an important year for all of us. We are taking stock of the accomplishments based on the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were adopted in the year 2000. The results of these efforts are immensely positive. In most countries around the globe, extreme poverty and hunger have been reduced, and infant, child, and maternal mortality have decreased. Girls have better access to primary schooling, progress has been made in slowing the spread of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, access to safe drinking water and sanitation has improved, and more information and knowledge is available to more people via the internet than ever before. However, not all goals have been achieved and some regions have benefitted less, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.
The period marked by the MDGs will end in December 2015. As part of the post-2015 development agenda, the international community is working intensely on a new set of goals, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be adopted at the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly in the second half of September 2015. The new set of goals, despite their similarity in some aspects, go beyond the MDGs in that (a) the formulation and focus of the goals are more encompassing, explicitly requiring active participation from wealthy and poor nations alike, and that (b) the overall focus is shifting away from ameliorating the situation of poor and underdeveloped regions and societies toward improving the sustainability of global economic and social development while concurrently protecting the environment.
19–21 October 2016 Food Factory 2016
Since 2001, the Food Factory conferences have been jointly organized by Laval Mayenne Technopole (LMT, France) and SP Food and Bioscience (previously SIK, Sweden).
They take place every other year, alternately in Gothenburg (2001, 2006 and 2010) and Laval (2004, 2008 and 2012).
In 2014, Food Factory took place in Uppsala, jointly with the 28th EFFOST Congress.

27–28 January 2017 The 6th World Sustainability Forum
Cape Town, South Africa
An international scientific conference of the journal Sustainability under the patronage of the University of Basel, University of the Western Cape, University of Cape Town and the National Research Foundation of the Republic of South Africa.
3–4 April 2017 Probiotics Congress: Europe
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
An increasing awareness of the importance of the role different bacterial ecosystems play with regards to human health has led to a surge in research, publications and companies in the microbiome and probiotic space. As changes in our lifestyle and the growth of multi-drug resistant bacterial strains have also increased the need for better solutions and management of chronic and life-threatening illnesses, microbiome and probiotic research is one of the most scientifically important and potentially lucrative avenues to be exploring. There is mounting evidence that selected probiotic strains can confer health benefits to us, especially with regards to digestive diseases and pediatric health. Further research into mechanisms of action for particular strains, large-cohort clinical trials, and compliance with good manufacturing practice and standards will result in the next generation of probiotic products to ultimately advance both patient and animal care.
As part of our worldwide microbiome series we are co-locating the European Probiotics Congress with the 4th European Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum. Both events will be held on April 3-4, 2017 at the historic Beurs van Berlage Conference Centre in central Amsterdam.
