We are very pleased to announce the 3rd International Conference “Functional Foods and Phytotherapy for Chronic Diseases.” The conference will bring together experts in medicine, biology, and the food industry to discuss the contribution of functional foods in the prevention and treatment of Chronic Diseases. The scope of the Conference will cover the advances of phytotherapy and food therapy of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity and cancer, with a special focus on the creation of functional and medicinal foods with new properties. 

Main Conference Topics:

1.         The role of nutrition in chronic disease occurrence.

2.     The creation of functional and medicinal products for the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity and cancer).

3.         Non-traditional plants as a source of functional and medicinal food products.

LANGUAGE: The official language of the conference is English.

PAPER REGISTRATION AND SUBMISSION:

The deadline for contributions is October 1, 2006, to submit manuscripts to the organizers. Early submissions are encouraged. Decisions on selection will be communicated to the authors by E-mail.

The proceedings of the conference will be published towards the beginning of the conference. All contributions will be reviewed, but only a limited number will be selected for the proceedings. For information concerning publications, please contact us at ffc_usa@sbcglobal.net

COPIES FOR CONTRIBUTORS:

We will furnish one copy of the collective work without charge to the lead author of the article (Editor: Danik M. Martirosyan, PhD).

GUIDANCE FOR AUTHORS:

The best way to send in your contributions is by email, as an attached file. Our preferred word-processing format is Microsoft Word, version 6. Manuscripts must be single-spaced, in 12-point font (including the references and legends of tables and figures) on sheets of uniform size (preferably ISO A4) with wide margins. A title of up to 10 words (in uppercase), and the first and last names of the author, department, and organization address should also appear. If there is more than one establishment involved in the work, authors' names should be linked to the appropriate establishment by numbers and the symbols *, †, ‡, §, and ¶ in that order. A summary giving a bulleted outline of content should appear for the introduction.

If there are any abbreviations in your article, they should be placed in brackets after the full title on the first occasion they are used.

The main body of the paper should be divided into: (a) introduction; (b) experimental, including materials and methods; (c) results, with appropriate quantification and statistical treatment of data; (d) tables and figures; (e) discussion (f) acknowledgements, including details of financial support; (g) numbered references. It is often an advantage to combine (c), (d) and (e) to gain conciseness and clarity. The discussion section should not recapitulate the results, but only discuss their implications. References should not normally exceed 50, and 20–30 references are frequently adequate.

REFERENCES:

References in the paper must be numbered in the order in which they appear in the text. The list of references at the end of the paper should give all the authors' names and initials unless there are more than 6 authors, in which case 'et al' is used for subsequent names. This is followed by the title, abbreviated according to the "List of Journals Indexed" in Index Medicus, the year of publication, the volume number, and the first and last page numbers. References to books should give the names of any editors, place of publication, publisher and year, in place of the journal information.

REGISTRATION FEE: 

An early registration fee (before October 1st) of $250 per participant (vendors - $295, guests - $125 per 1 day) will cover the Conference Proceedings (Abstracts), local transportation, and refreshments during conference days. If you submit an article but are unable to attend the conference, the registration fee will be waived.
