Programm & Fees

Instructions for presentations:

Oral: 20 min including discussion. Preferred: Laptop with MS Windows - MS Office Powerpoint are installed in the lecture rooms, please put your presentation the latest in the break before your session onto the laptop in the lecture room. Alternatively you can plug your own laptop (VGA or HDMI cable).

Poster: Preferably 118.9 cm x 84.1 cm (A0 format). Adhesive tapes and poster walls are present in the room next to the registration desk and the number of your poster is indicated at your place on the wall and in the final program and book of abstract. Posters can be left on the wall during the whole meeting.


Topics and Scientific Program

Contributions from fundamental, and applied research are highly welcome. The call is open to all polysaccharide related topics including but not limited to:    

-         Forestry, Agriculture, Biotechnology: cultivation and isolation of polysaccharide biomass and exploration of novel bioresources (e.g., algae, fungi, bacteria, crops and plants, waste products);

-         Biorefinery of polysaccharide biomass: fractionation of polysaccharides from biomass streams and/or conversion into monomers, platform chemicals, energy, or fuels;

-         Biological aspects: biosynthesis of polysaccharides, genetic engineering / characterization of plants with respect to polysaccharide components;

-         Fundamental polysaccharide research: theoretical/experimental studies on dissolution/regeneration of polysaccharides, computational analysis of polysaccharide assembling/dissembling, advanced techniques for the characterization of polysaccharides, interaction of polysaccharides with other compounds;

-         Chemical functionalization of polysaccharides: novel approaches (solvents, derivatization reactions, greener processes) for derivatization of polysaccharides, enzymatic catalysis and advanced chemical modification of polysaccharide based materials;

-         Advanced fields of application: innovative applications, e.g., in health, food, biotechnology, materials engineering, consumer products, agriculture, environment;

-         Polysaccharide based materials: innovative processes for shaping of polysaccharides (e.g., into fibers, films, membranes, bulk material), “non-classical” polysaccharide shapes (e.g., particles, hydrogels, aerogels), polysaccharide based composites with organic/inorganic materials, nanostructured polysaccharide based materials, materials with functional surface modifications.
