The 6th International Conference on Polyphenols and Health website is on air!

The 2013 ICPH will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, next October! The website is in preparation, but open to the public. We are pleased to be part of the International Scientific Advisory Board (Daniele) and we hope we can meet you there.

The words of the congress chair:

We would like to invite you to the ICPH-6 in Buenos Aires, which will be held October 16-19, 2013.

Research on polyphenols and related phytochemicals has flourished in the last decades. The understanding of why fruits and vegetables benefit human and animal health remains a target of basic and applied sciences. Nevertheless we have advanced in that endeavor; still no definitive answers are reached. Thus is evident the importance of feeding the existing volume of research with new and creative ideas, further interactions among the different disciplines, and an active incorporation of young as well as established scientists.

The series of ICPH conferences started in 2003 in Vichy, and were biannually followed by successful meetings in Davis (2005), Kyoto (2007), Harrogate (2009), and Barcelona (2011). In all these conferences, the maintenance of high scientific quality and innovation was an achieved objective. The target audience of ICPH meetings include medicine, biology, chemistry, nutrition, pharmacology, toxicology, plant and crop science. This year the VIII Society for Free Radical Biology and Medicine-South America congress will precede the ICPH-6 sharing one day of activities.

We envision a program of top-notch scientific quality, complemented with exciting cultural activities. Buenos Aires, as a major cosmopolitan city, offers a plethora of treats including tango, marvaleous meat and Malbec wine. For those coming from far, the possibility of touring Argentina is a must. The mild and sunny October, favors pre- or post- travel to Patagonia glaciers, IguazĂș falls, and whale watching in Puerto Madryn, among the many touristic possibilities.

Looking forward to meeting you in Buenos Aires in October.
