Abstracts are now available at the congress webpage to help you to plan your individual schedule.
The programme booklet is currently being mailed out. It is also available as .pdf from the congress webpage.
The number of posters has grown meanwhile to 220, with new posters arriving every hour. We expect to have almost 400 posters on display for the three poster sessions. To reach the book of abstracts make sure to submit your poster not later than 1 August. However, last minute posters will be accepted even after this date but not be included in the book of abstracts.
Although English is widely spoken in the Netherlands, it might be nice to have some basic knowledge of Dutch.
On the webpage "woord van vandaag" you can subscribe to a mailing list to receive one Dutch word every day. You can subscribe or unsubscribe by sending an email request to email@example.com.
This mailinglist is aiming to provide new vocabulary to speakers of English learning the Dutch language.
The webpage 2BDutch offers an easy and fun way to learn more about the Dutch language and culture.
Learn Dutch by watching videos with subtitles. Practise your listening comprehensive skill and learn new words. The Dutch videos are translated in English, German, Spanish, French and Portuguese.

Can plant oils replace fossil oils?
Fossil oil is a finite resource, but plant oils have the potential to replace it in the chemical and energy industries. Biotechnology can help produce plant oils with high levels of the desirable fatty acids, oils enriched with unusual fatty acids for specialty applications, as well as increase the oil yields by employing metabolic engineering. Carlsson et al. from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences reviewed the recent progress, future challenges and possible solutions for replacing fossil oils with renewable plant resources.

Hydrophilic antioxidants of virgin olive oil
Olive oil is a rich source of powerful natural antioxidants from the family of phenolic compounds. While lipophilic phenols such as tocopherols can also be found in other vegetable oils, most of the hydrophilic phenols in olive oil are endemic to Olea europaea species. In their extensive two-part review, Milad El Riachy and colleagues cover the essential knowledge concerning the phenolic compounds of virgin olive oil.
