Manuscripts must be submitted by 30th November 2016


It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 30th ESCPB Congress, which will be held in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain 4-7th September 2016.

The theme of the congress is ‘Unraveling complexity: from molecules to ecosystems’.

The innovative use of chemicals and nanomaterials in new technologies, industry and agriculture, in a context of global warming/acidification, challenges many aspects of the ecosystems functioning. An in-depth knowledge of the environment, the biological responses from molecules to ecosystems, and the physiological adaptations of the organisms is needed and further challenges the scientific community to find out innovative solutions. The conference will be an ideal platform where to present, discuss and implement this knowledge and to point out future needs. An attractive scientific program encompassing 11 different scientific sessions will be developed over 4 days.

We warmly welcome you to Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, a Spanish region with its own culture and language. You will enjoy modern art and architecture, excellent transport and housing facilities, traditional and innovative restaurants and a vibrant city life. Barcelona is located at 50 km from the Costa Brava and 100 km from the Pyrenees, this offers multiple possibilities for you to explore.
