It's with great pleasure that we announce the upcoming 6th Beneficial Microbes Conference, to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on 9-11 October 2017.

The 6th Beneficial Microbes Conference will provide an overview of the latest scientific results and future developments related to pre- and probiotics and their importance to human and animal health across the lifespan.

The impact of pre- and probiotics seems too diverse to be beneficial to the average man/woman as different life stages have different needs: pregnancy period; infancy and childhood; adulthood; and older adults. This applies to animals, such as pigs, poultry, cattle, horses, dogs and cats, as well. The conference aims to define gaps, needs, and opportunities for pre- and probiotics applications over the lifespan. Topics include but are not limited to pre- and probiotics and the gut microbiome, the gut-brain axis, the microbiome beyond the gut (reproductive organs, oral cavity, nose, lung, skin, eye), and more.

The members of the Advisory Committee are looking forward to meeting you in Amsterdam! We aim at a networking meeting to create new initiatives for the customised application of pre- and probiotics in food, feed and healthcare.

On behalf of the Advisory Committee,

Dr. Koen Venema
Conference chair
