Guidelines to Abstract Submission

The Scientific Committee of IPC2017 seeks original papers that demonstrate the effect of probiotics and prebiotics on health and well being of humans and on animal health.

The conference will be organized in a series of thematically ordered sessions. The members of the Nomination Committee will strictly evaluate contributions to the conference in order to ensure a high level of scientific and/or practical quality and relevance. All contributions accepted will be assigned to a specific session. All contributions accepted and presented at the conference will be included with the official Conference Proceedings.

The themes of the conference focus on the current advances in the research of probiotics and prebiotics, their present and future role in maintaining health and preventing diseases with particular emphasis on evidence-based benefits.

Both subtle and blatant advertisement of any products or services is in direct conflict with the spirit of the conference. Examples of the former include repeated references to products or trade names and excessive use of corporate logos and trademarks in graphic illustrations.
