PSP 2012 is co-organized by both French National Institute for Agricultural Research (Nantes) and French National institute for Scientific Research (Roscoff) as a satellite meeting of the 26th International Carbohydrate Symposium (ICS2012) held in Madrid, Spain, July 22-27, 2012.
In the tradition of PPW series started in Melbourne (Australia) in 1980, PSP 2012 will explore recent advances and future trends in understanding the relationship between structure and properties or uses of plant polysaccharides, extended in Nantes to seaweed polysaccharides. Lectures and posters will be organized into five topical areas.
|1. Structure of polysaccharides and their assemblies, including evolution of natural polysaccharides assemblies
|Maria DALGAARD MIKKELSEN (Copenhagen University, Denmark)
|2. Biorefinery and green chemistry|
|Maria TUOHY (NUI Galway, Ireland)
|3. Polysaccharides and new enzymatic pathways: metagenomics, Cazymes and enzymatic modifications in concentrated systems...
|Gabrielle VERONESE (INSA Toulouse, France)
|4. Innovative polysaccharide-based materials: smart materials, nanomaterials, biomedical applications...|
|Lars BERGLUND (KTH Stocklom, Sweden)
|5. Polysaccharides and healthy food|
|Haruki YAMADA (KILS Tokyo, Japan)
We kindly invite you to participate in PSP 2012 and to enjoy a stimulating congress and the beautiful city of Nantes.
We particularly encourage early registration and submission of abstracts.
