Dear Reader,
A warm welcome to the 15th Euro Fed Lipid Congress!

Proud host is Nordic Lipidforum which this year celebrates 65 years since the very first meeting in Halmstad, Sweden, 1952. We are now very happy to welcome you to Uppsala, a lively university city characterized by charm, famous scientists and, of course, its students. Our venue, Uppsala Concert & Congress (UKK), is very centrally located within short walking distance from the train station, all hotels and the historical center of Uppsala. Also, the airport is just 18 min train ride away!

The theme of this years´ congress reflects the great importance of oils, fats and lipids for a healthy life through its multiple functions in all aspects of human life and care. With the present theme in mind, the Scientific committee, coordinated by Ingrid Undeland (Chalmers University of Technology) and Bengt Herslöf (Lipidor AB) has created a program with strong key note speakers, invited lectures, award lectures and volunteer lectures.

Further to sessions which follow the division structure of Euro Fed Lipid, we are featuring three extra topics which we hope can attract both first-time and frequent attendees to the congress; Lipids in formulation of pharma and cosmetics, Lipids in novel foods, and Lipid soluble contaminants. To acknowledge the importance of posters, short oral poster pitches will be offered, and poster titles will be highlighted also within the oral sessions.

Altogether, we see a timely and relevant program of very high quality targeting many issues of global importance. We therefore feel confident that congress attendees will experience new findings and knowledge on oils, fats and lipids.

However, a congress should be more than just lectures and posters. As hubs for socializing and networking, coffee breaks, lunches, receptions and conference dinner will this year be enriched with joint morning jogging (first time in EFL-history!) and pub night. It is not unlikely that seeds for new collaboration studies to be presented in coming EFL-meetings will be planted just here! In short, we very much look forward to meeting you in Sweden in August. Most welcome!

15th Euro Fed Lipid Congress

Uppsala "Oil, Fats and Lipids: New Technologies and Applications for a Healthier Life"
27-30 August 2017, Uppsala, Sweden
hosted by the Nordic Lipidforum

Thank you for submitting a huge amount of lecture abstracts. Unfortunately only 2/3 of all submissions can be hosted withinh the available time and space so that we were forced to ask many authors to present a poster instead.

The programme is now available online and authors should have been informed meanwhile.

However, posters can be still be submitted anytime until August.

Please follow this link to the

Linnaean Garden in Uppsala

garden The Linnaean Garden or Linnaeus' Garden is the oldest of the botanical gardens belonging to Uppsala University in Sweden. It has been restored and is kept as an 18th-century botanical garden, according to the specifications of Carl Linnaeus.

Carl Linnaeus, also known after his ennoblement as Carl von Linné, was a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, who formalised the modern system of naming organisms called binomial nomenclature. He is known by the epithet "father of modern taxonomy".

linne The garden was originally planned and planted by Olaus Rudbeck, professor of medicine, in 1655. Rudbeck also built the house adjacent to the garden. At the end of the 17th century it had about 1,800 different species, but was damaged in the Uppsala city fire 1702. Linnaeus became responsible for the garden in 1741 and had it rearranged according to his own ideas, documented in his work Hortus Upsaliensis (1748).

After the gardens of Uppsala Castle had been donated to the university by King Gustav III to serve as a new botanical garden, the old one was left to decay. It was bought by the Swedish Linnaean Society in 1917 and restored according to the detailed description in the Hortus Upsaliensis. The garden was later taken over by the university, while the Linnaean Museum in the house in which Linnaeus had his home is still run by the Society. It is now one of two satellite gardens of the larger University of Uppsala Botanic Garden near Uppsala Castle. The second satellite is Linnaeus Hammarby, the former summer home of Linnaeus and his family.
