The first meeting of the International Society for Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods (ISNFF) will be held in Taichung, Taiwan on November 14-17, 2008 (For further information about the conference, please visit the ISNFF website at http://isnff.org). The scientific program of the Society is provided here, and this will be accompanied by an exhibition from a number of companies. Despite the short lead time, we have well over 400 registrants and some 14 companies exhibiting at the meeting. The inaugural issue of the Journal of Functional Foods, the Official Journal of the Society, will be released during the ISNFF meeting. The Journal will be published on a quarterly basis by Elsevier Publishing Company and will be available to ISNFF members at a reduced rate.
The 2009 meeting of the Society will be held in North America: time and venue to be announced shortly! Associated with the meeting, there
will be a student competition. Furthermore, we will have merit awards for corporate members for outstanding ingredients, products, and services. Currently, we are making efforts to establish a fund for student fellowships and other progressive measures to encourage outstanding performance by those interested in this exciting field that affects our health and well-being. We count on your support, but this can only begin with your membership in the ISNFF.
