On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the EuroFoodChem XX Conference, which will be held from 17th to 19th June 2019 in Porto, Portugal, under the auspices of the Food Chemistry Division of the European Chemical Society (FCD-EuChemS) and the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ).
Following the previous successful meetings held in different European countries since 1981, it is an honour to host a conference of this series for the first time in Portugal. The conference will take place in the lovely ancient city of Porto, now rediscovered and elected as European Best Destination 2017. This city will provide you with opportunities to experience unique sightseeing’s of the Douro river from its bridges, visits to cultural places and monuments in the historical centre (UNESCO World Heritage Site), tasting the typical Portuguese cuisine and feel the inspiration of the Port Wine.
One of the most important aims of the EuroFoodChem Conferences is to provide a forum for discussion and exchange of innovative ideas between researchers from academia and industry who share a general interest in Food Chemistry in all its aspects and interfaces, including universities, research centres, industry, consumers, policy makers, and control authorities. Therefore, we invite you to present your recent works and join us in making this a high quality scientific meeting. Attendance of students are encouraged and supported by affordable registration fees.
Besides an interesting scientific program, a rich social program is being prepared for the conference participants and accompanying persons to experience the warm Portuguese hospitality and the extraordinary beauty of Porto and its surroundings.
We look forward to welcoming you in Porto!

The aim of the Workshop is to demystify the idea that publishing in high impact factor journals is an impossible task or that it is reserved for a small group of renowned experts and Professors from World Top Higher Education Institutions. In this workshop, participants will be guided in all sections that compose a scientific paper, the aspects that need particular attention, and how to address each section of the manuscript. The ultimate goal is to stimulate and encourage MSc and Ph.D. students in their thesis final stage to get “out of the box” and plan, organize, execute and acquire the “fire in the belly” to publish their research outputs.
The Workshop is open to a general Academia audience, mainly targeting students but also open to researchers and early career Professors. The Workshop can also be attended by participants from diverse scientific domains, since it is developed in a general way, with some exercises and examples referring to particular areas (Food Science and Technology/Food Chemistry for this particular Workshop), specifically developed to meet the participants’ background and main scientific subjectsMore information Registration For questions about the workshop (registration, payment, invoices, etc.), please contact email@example.com
Awards will be attributed to the three best posters presented by students during the XX EuroFoodChem. A Poster Award Committee (members of the Scientific Committee and of the Food Chemistry Division-EuChemS) will review the posters during
the poster sessions. Selection will be based on three criteria: Originality of the research, Clarity of the presentation, and Quality of the results presented.
The award will consist on the Registration fee for the student at the XXI EuroFoodChem congress. Awards will be announced during the Closing ceremony.
An Award will be attributed to a work (poster or oral) presented by a student during the XX EuroFoodChem. Selection will be based on three criteria: General interest of the research, Clarity of the presentation, and Quality of the results presented.
The award will consist of one English Editing service (Basic Pack ) of a manuscript having the student as the first author. The award will be announced during the Closing Ceremony.
Participation of the younger generation of chemists to the international scientific conferences has a major impact on their future career. Therefore, the Food Chemistry Division of EuChemS decided to organize a competition for young chemists
participating in the XX EuroFoodChem Conference. The competition aims to honour and celebrate the International Year of Periodic Table.
The Food Chemistry Division of EuChemS offers 3 prizes for the XXI EuroFoodChem in 2021, as follows:
The competition is designed for the young chemists (graduate students, masters students or PhD students, up to 35 years of age) which will participate in the XX EuroFoodChem. The young chemists interested to apply should express their intention to participate
in the contest (before 31 May 2019, sending an intention letter to firstname.lastname@example.org, putting “Food Element Competition” as subject of the email) and prepare a poster in which one or more elements from the periodic table
are presented, mentioning its importance for human body and its direct link to food.
The posters enlisted in the competition will be presented, in a separate session, during the XX EuroFoodChem.
The posters will be analysed by a jury from the Food Chemistry Division of EuChemS and the results will be presented at the closing ceremony of XX EuroFoodChem.
