Food & Function is a unique journal which links the chemistry and physics of food with health and nutrition - publishing high impact research at the interface of chemistry, physics, and biology. Focusing on food and the functions in relation to health, this highly multidisciplinary journal brings together many different scientific communities working on food related research.
This symposium will feature three one-day meetings that will take place at three different locations throughout China: Taiwan, Beijing and Chongqing. Each meeting will feature a selection of lectures on the science of food and nutrition, given by some of the world's leading international scientists. The Beijing event has been organized by the Royal Society of Chemistry, hosted by Peking University and Functional Food Society of Chinese Institute of Food Science and Technology (CIFST). It is being supported by the RSC Journal Food & Function and its Editor, Sarah Ruthven.
The symposium focuses on advances of food nutrition and safety as well as the relationship between food and health, including:
♦ The chemistry and bioactivities of food components.
♦ Effects of natural compounds and processing treatment on food safety.
♦ Food, dietary supplement, and human health.
♦ Biotechnology and functional food.
♦ The effect of dietary polyphenol antioxidants on vascular function and blood pressure
♦ Diet, Nutrition and Chronic Disease in China
♦ Diet-based strategies for Cancer prevention
♦ Functional Foods or Functional Food Ingredients from Microalgae
♦ Eating behaviour and oral processing of chocolate
♦ Can Antioxidants Make a Life Longer?
♦ Cereal dietary fibres, water insoluble antioxidants and gut health promotion

Delegates attending the symposium are invited to submit an abstract which including advanced results for food and function issues, and all eligible abstact submissions will be collected in the printed symposium abstract book. We especially encourage students and post-doctoral fellows to participate. In addition, students among the abstract submittors who have done an excellent research work will be provided an oppotunity to give a short oral presentation in the symposium. Thursday, November 15, 2013 is the deadline for abstracts submission (摘要征集截止日期为2013年11月15日).
The body of the abstract submission should not exceed 500 words in English; this limit excludes the title, authors and affiliations. Clearly define all concepts and abbreviations at first use. If English is not your primary language, attempt to have your abstract reviewed by a native English speaker. To be acceptable, abstracts shall contain a concise statement of the research as well as authors information and keywords.
