15th International Conference of FFC - Third International Symposium of ASFFBC:


Mental, Neurological and other Chronic Disorders:  Bio-markers, Bioactive Compounds, and Functional Foods

May 10-11, 2014, University of Regensburg, Regensburg, Germany


Venue and Accommodation

The conference venue takes place in the University of Regensburg in Bavaria. The almost 2000-year-old city of Regensburg, with its magnificent Gothic cathedral, is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Regensburg is the best-preserved medieval city in Germany and boasts numerous attractions from the time when Regensburg was a fortress on the border of the Roman Empire, and later, a flourishing and wealthy trading place in Central Europe. In the Middle Ages, the city became a favorite meeting place of Imperial Assemblies. From 1663 to 1806, it was the seat of the Perpetual Imperial Diet, where the ambassadors from German and European royal courts established a varied cultural life.

You can discuss here recent developments related to functional/medical food in health and disease. Further, you will be able to enjoy the charming atmosphere of Regensburg and taste Bavarian food, accompanied by excellent beer.


Regensburg is one of the few cities that World War II did not destroy. If you are staying for a few extra days, you may want to look into renting a car or consider the local train and bus schedules.
