Due to COVID-19 emergency, the VIII International Symposium on Sourdough is postponed from June 2021 to June 2022.

The VIII International Symposium on Sourdough will be held in Bolzano, Italy, from June 14-17, 2022. The venue for the symposium is NOI TechPark Südtirol/Alto Adige. As was the case at previous Sourdough Symposia, we would like to provide a venue for colleagues and young researchers from universities, research institutes and companies interested in sourdough biotechnology, functionalities and the health aspects of cereal and non-cereal fermentations, in order to discuss and present the latest research findings and developments in this field.

NEW: we inform the participants that the Evening Event Dinner on Wednesday, 15th June, is moved up at 19:30 (no 19:50 as originally in the programme).
