Probiota 2014 – the leading conference bridging the interface of academia and industry for cutting edge science about the prebiotics, probiotics and the microbiome – has extended the call for proposals for its poster sessions by one week to Friday 13th December 2013.

The all-new Poster Sessions at next year's Probiota conference will bring together delegates and presenting experts from all over the world to present and discuss the latest science and innovations, and their clinical and commercial implications.

Organised by NutraIngredients, the conference features expert presenters from industry and academia to explore the prebiotic-probiotic scientific frontier, its evolution and commercial application in food, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics across the globe.

The Probiota 2014 team has now extended the deadline for its invitation to submit poster proposals for the conference by one additional week. The new deadline for submission of proposals is Friday 13th December 2013.

In addition to extending the deadline, the team has also announced a limited number of heavily-subsidised attendance rates available for poster presenters from academic and non-commercial organisations. Further details on poster submission can be found here.
