This event is no longer available for registration.

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!

Days - 27th to the 30th August 2017
