About the event

The 17th International Scientific Conference on Probiotics, Prebiotics, Gut Microbiota and Health - IPC2024 will be held during the 18th - 20th June 2024 in Prague, Czechia.

The goal of conference is to provide a scientific forum for all stakeholders of probiotics and prebiotics 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 evidences that support 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, IPC2024 is a networking event. It is a unique opportunity to meet all the stakeholders of probiotics and prebiotics.

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.

ILSI Europe Session

This year, ILSI Europe will participate to the event with a sponsored session titled "Fostering Collaboration and Scientific-Based Consensus to Unlock the Power of the Microbiome":

  • Introduction - Isabelle Guenlickx, ILSI Europe
  • Prebiotics for cognitive resilience - Boushra Dalile, KU Leuven
  • Prebiotics & Health Claims - Elaine VaughanSensus
  • Benefits, challenges, and opportunities with changes in the maternal microbiome - Eduard Flores Ventura, Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology-National Research Council

About the event

The Danish Society of Toxicology and Pharmacology has the honor to organise EUROTOX 2024 in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. The congress will take place from 8 to 11 September 2024.

The congress theme "Toxicology - A Quest for safe Chemicals and Medicines" reflects the congress programme including a variety of topics dealing with safety of drugs and environmental chemicals, new and emerging technologies, personalised medicine, human health effects caused by exposure to chemicals as well as safety issues arising from climate changes.

The Local Organising Committee (LOC) and the Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) have made an inspiring programme, including the newest aspects of modern toxicology and methodologies. We emphasise the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration within toxicology and with the medical industries.

The Scientific Programme (SP) includes four "Short Oral Communications Sessions" (OS) giving the young researches the possibility to present their latest research results. We encourage everyone to submit their abstract to get the possibility to present at one of the numerous OS. The venue is The Tivoli Congress Center, located in the city centre at the waterfront, 12 min by metro from Copenhagen Airport, walking distance to central city locations e.g. the Tivoli Park, the railway station and the Town Hall Square. The Congress Centre, designed by the architect Kim Utzon, has a capacity of up to 5500 meeting participants, includes congress hall, auditoriums and big meeting rooms all at the ground floor. The Tivoli Hotel has 679 rooms, swimming pool, playrooms, fitness & business centers, cloud bar and restaurants. Another 3000 hotel rooms are located within walking distance.
