EPNOE 2013: International Polysaccharide Conference

Monday October 21, 2013 to Thursday October 24, 2013
Nice, France

Event Type: Conference

Subject(s): Physical Sciences, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering, Environmental Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Theoretical Chemistry


Event Description

EPNOE and the Cellulose and Renewable Materials Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) decided in 2011 to join their efforts in promoting basic and applied sciences of polysaccharides by organising common events. The 3rd EPNOE conference, EPNOE 2013, is one of these events organised by EPNOE and ACS. It will be held in Nice, France, on 21-24 October 2013 (new dates). Polysaccharides are vital polymers for all aspects of the life of human beings, used for health care and food and in a large variety of materials, especially owing to the huge development of bio-based products. They are at the forefront of most research due to their renewable character and their low carbon footprint. However, due to the complexity of their synthesis in Nature, to the difficulty in dis-assembling them, to the highly multidisciplinary character of polysaccharide research and to the very large variety of applications, there is a need for organizing events where all the needed scientific specialties will meet. EPNOE and ACS are expecting EPNOE 2013 conference to be a forum bringing together academic, industrial, and government scientists and students dealing with polysaccharides and polysaccharide-derived products. Many disciplines including biologists, chemists, physicists, food specialists, technologists, environmentalists will meet and gain knowledge about the interdisciplinary world of polysaccharide science.
