International Conference on Algal Technologies

July 14 to 16, 2016 - Punjab, India

International Conference on Algal Technologies

Conference Theme: Advancing Algal Technologies – Challenges and Solutions

Sevas Educational Society invites faculty members, scientists, consultants, entrepreneurs to present technological advances in algal industries. Students can participate in paper and poster presentation and can also interact with experts in panel discussion. The conference will present content in a wide array of teaching styles such as didactic lectures, extensive question and answer and group discussion sessions, group workshops, and ample networking opportunities. Through this variety of teaching/learning styles, the faculty will enhance the knowledge of algal technologies.

Workshop on Advanced Nutraceuticals, Functional Foods and Dietary Supplements

Algae have a long history of use as foods and for the production of food ingredients. There is also increasing interest in their exploitation as sources of bioactive compounds for use in functional foods and nutraceuticals. Functional ingredients from algae for foods and nutraceuticals reviews key topics in these areas, encompassing both macroalgae (seaweeds), microalgae and cyanobacteria. The workshop will present content in a wide array of teaching styles such as didactic lectures, extensive question and answer and group discussion sessions, group workshops, and ample networking opportunities. Through this variety of teaching/learning styles, the faculty will enhance the knowledge of various formulations of nutraceuticals, functional foods, dietary supplements from various cyanobacteria and algae sources.
