It is a great pleasure and privilege to welcome you to Aveiro and to the 6th EPNOE International Polysaccharide Conference that will take place from 21st– 25th of October 2019.

This congress is an initiative of EPNOE, the Cellulose and Renewable Division of the American Chemistry Society (ACS), and the Cellulose Society of Japan (CSJ) and is being hosted in Aveiro, Portugal for the first time.

The ambition of the EPNOE International Polysaccharides Conferences is to bring together researchers from academia and industry working or interested in polysaccharides related R&D topics, to disseminate results and to promote a networking platform for close interactions between academia and industry.

We are pleased to offer you an excellent scientific programme, structured in Thematic Sessions covering different areas where polysaccharides have a relevant role, co-organized by scientific experts in each field.

We hope that it will be an enjoyable event that will provide an opportunity for delegates to discuss and share knowledge, ideas and expertise with colleagues and peers. 

We wish you a fruitful meeting and a pleasant stay in Aveiro!
