14th International Scientific Conference on Probiotics, Prebiotics, Gut Microbiota and Health – IPC2020
The 14th International Scientific Conference on Probiotics, Prebiotics, Gut Microbiota and Health – IPC2020 will be held during the 22 – 25 June 2020 in Prague Congress Centre. IPC2020 is the event of the successful conference series focusing on probiotics in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. The scientific programme will focus on current advances in the research, production and use of probiotics and prebiotics with particular focus on their role in maintaining health and preventing diseases.
IPC is the worldwide biggest scientific conference that focuses on probiotics, prebiotics, gut microbiota and health. At IPC leading scientists from industry and academia present current advances in understanding and influencing the interaction between gut microbiota and human health. The goal of the conference is to provide a scientific forum for all stakeholders of probiotics, prebiotics and gut health and to enable the interactive exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge. The conference is focused on evidence-based benefits, health claims proven in scientific experiments and clinical trials.
New scientific evidence that supports or question the efficiency of already existing or prospective substances and applications will be conferred. In addition novel strains, controversial but scientifically solid ideas, approaches and visions will be presented as well.
Further to its scientific content, IPC2020 is a networking event. It is a unique opportunity to meet all the stakeholders of probiotics, prebiotics, gut microbiota and health.
Participants will meet those who influenced the past, influence the present and most importantly will shape the future of probiotics and prebiotics by means of basic research, clinical trials, regulatory efforts or development of industrial technology. Initiation of cross-boarder co-operations between scientists and institutions will be also facilitated.
NB! Separate symposium is planned for presenting papers on the research, development and use of probiotics and prebiotics in animals. Also the Scientific Symposium on Bacteriocins and Antimicrobial Peptides - BAMP2020 and the Regulatory Workshop will take place on Monday 22 June 2020.
Researchers and expert scientists from research institutes and industry will present their recent findings and visions about the research, development, production, application and use of probiotics – lactic-acid bacteria, bifidobacteria, yeasts, bacilli – and prebiotics within the following subject areas:
