Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure and honor to co-host the 22nd International Symposium on Microencapsulation together with the International Microencapsulation Society and the Federal University of Bahia. This well-established series of international symposia started in 1972 as a forum for scientific discussions in the microencapsulation field. The meetings have been held at approximately 2 yearly intervals and this 22nd Edition is a continuation of the previous symposia organized in Boston/USA (2015) and Faro/PT (2017).

The Symposium will cover many aspects of microencapsulation and the next generation of this field – nanotechnology – in ground-breaking approaches towards pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food and engineering applications.
The Scientific Program will include plenary sessions with world-class Keynote Speakers. Also, thematic scientific sessions and poster/oral presentations will be organized to maximize interaction and learning among the participants. In particular, thematic round tables will discuss micro- and nanotechnology for tropical and neglected diseases, animal health, sustainable agriculture and environment.

We believe that your participation would brighten the Symposium and would be a great opportunity to share knowledge and experiences.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
