Dear all,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to warmly welcome you to the 4th International Symposium on Bacterial Nano-Cellulose (4ISBNC)!

This event, which has been held biennially since 2013, mobilizes experts from the field, to discuss all aspects of research related to Bacterial Nano-Cellulose Biotechnology, including the biology and genetics of producing microorganisms, production biotechnologies and different areas of application, namely biomedicine, food and cosmetic industries, composites, pulp and paper. Previous editions took place in New Orleans (2013), Gdansk (2015) and Fukuoka (2017).

The 4th ISBNC will be held in Porto - Portugal, at the Almeida Garrett Library Auditorium, between 3 and 4, October, 2019.
As with previous events, this Symposium aims to attract international researchers to communicate and share the latest developments in this fast-moving and continually expanding field of Bacterial Nano-Cellulose.

Reasons to attend:
     Present your latest research
     Learn and share your knowledge with and from internationally renowned researchers
     Understand the current state of research and the challenges to future discovery
     Meet and socialize with fellow scientists from around the world
     Take some time to explore the vibrant city of Porto!

We believe the next few years will witness the translation of BNC from Academia to the Bioeconomy. Be a part of it and contribute to this exciting challenge!
