Matbim 2015

24th - 26th June 2015

Zaragoza, Spain


The 3rd International Symposium International Meeting on Packaging Material / Bioproduct Interactions (MATBIM 2015) will take place to 17-19 June 2015 at at Aragon Institute of Engineering Research (I3A), Campus Rio Ebro, University of Zaragoza, Zaragoza, Spain

The third meeting will promote the state of the art in mass transfer mechanisms, membrane separations, interactions between packaging materials (particularly new materials, bio-packaging, active, smart and intelligent and food/bioproducts) and the analytical developments for assessing the consumer safety. Four sessions will be involved as presented in the right frame and detailed in the scientific program webpage.

The conference programme will feature lectures by expert speakers from all over the world, mainly from Europe, presenting new knowledge and experimental results. We encourage scientists from both academic and industrial laboratories to present their current research work with short oral communications (15 min) or posters in one or more of the topics of the program.

The audience of MATBIM 2015 will be limited to 180 participants.

Conference Background

1st MATBIM 2010 was organized in Paris (France) in march 2010. It was an immediate success, with more than 120 researchers from around the world presenting their latest results on this field. The 2nd edition of MATBIM was organized in Dijon (France) in April 2012. The success of the previous editions aimed to go on with this 3rd edition.

Our challenge would be to improve the already excellent scientific program of the previous editions, to promote contacts between participants in a relaxed and pleasant environment as well as to export MATBIM 2017 in another European country.

Conference language

The official language will be English. No translation service will be provided.
