We are happy to introduce a recent European professional forum, the 14th International Nutrition and Diagnostics Conference (INDC) that was held this September in Prague, Czech Republic.
It is already the fourteenth annual international conference demonstrating the perspective of integration of human nutrition, analytical and laboratory diagnostic techniques and procedures. Since the initial meeting in Pardubice (Czech Republic) in 2001, INDC has established its reputation of an international multi-disciplinary event for discussing current trends in food science.
INDCs have been expanding and progressing during these fourteen years. This September, the conference hosted over 300 delegates from 44 countries. The professional contribution from 47 lectures and 168 poster presentations reflected recent research in food technology, food analysis, microbiology, immunology, analytical and clinical chemistry, and, certainly, medicine.
It is a pleasure for Integrative Food Nutrition and Metabolism to see INDC as our partner event. Abstracts from INDC 2014 are published in this issue as proceedings of INDC 2014. For more information about INDC of the coming year, please read: www.indc.cz
