  • Dear Reader,

    On behalf of the Organizing Committee of 11th Euro Fed Lipid Congress 2013 we have the privilege of welcoming you to Antalya.

    This meeting will be another great opportunity to discuss various aspects of lipids with people from Europe and beyond in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Antalya. In this specialized scientific gathering, delegates will have the chance for fruitful discussions on state-of-the-art knowledge and applications in wide a range of lipid related disciplines.

    The congress will address 16 different topics on fats and oils and the venue will give ample opportunities to network with professionals from academia and industry. Discussions on scientific and technological developments in fats and oils, special sessions relating to olive, palm, rapeseed, sunflower, marine, microbial and microalgae oils, processing and process related problems, health and disease issues associated to lipids, sustainability, and many others will take place during this congress.

    We will meet in a city that attracts over 30 million international visitors per year. Antalya is known world wide for its sunny beaches and numerous historical sites such as Aspendos, Myra and Perge. It is a popular tourist destination throughout the year and has average temperature of 26°C in October.

    We look forward to welcoming you to world famous Antalya for the
    11th Euro Fed Lipid Congress from 27th to 30th of October 2013.

    Antalya, Turkey

    Antalya is a city on the Mediterranean coast of southwestern Turkey. The city has a population of 965.000.

    Antalya is one of the world's and the Mediterranean's leading tourism destinations. It attracts 30% of foreign tourists visiting Turkey. It was the world's third most visited city by number of international arrivals in 2011, (after Paris and London and ahead of New York).

    It is uncertain when the site of the current city was first inhabited. Attalos II, king of Pergamon, was believed to have founded the city around 150 BC, naming it Attalia and selecting it as a naval base for his powerful fleet.

    Antalya became part of the Roman Republic in 133 BC when King Attalos III of Pergamon willed his kingdom to Rome at his death. The city grew and prospered during the Ancient Roman period.

    Christianity started to spread in the region after 2nd century. Antalya was visited by Paul of Tarsus, as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles: "From Perga, Paul and Barnabas went down to Attalia and sailed from there to Antioch after preaching in Pisidia and Pamphylia"

    Yivli Minare Camii (Fluted Minaret Mosque) is a historical mosque in Antalya. The mosque's fluted minaret, which is decorated with dark blue tiles, is a landmark and symbol of the city.

    Built in 1230 and fully reconstructed in 1373, the minaret is 38 metres high, built on a square stone base, with eight fluted sections and has 90 steps to the top.

    European Journal: Euro Fed Lipid Highlights 2012 Preview

    A special issue of EJLST featuring the highlights of the Euro Fed Lipid Congress will be published in October. Some articles are already available online:

    Current and future technologies for the sustainable and cost-efficient production of high quality food oils

    Wim De Greyt

    The production of high quality food oils in a cost-efficient and also sustainable way requires a new refining approach and "Next generation" oil refining processes are developed to meet the new refining standards.
