International Workshop on Biorefinery of Lignocellulosic Materials, Córdoba, Spain

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is a great pleasure to invite you to attend the 1st International Workshop on Biorefinery of Lignocellulosic Materials (IWBLCM) to be held in Córdoba, Spain, from Tuesday 9th to Friday 12th of June, 2015.

The Congress will take place in Córdoba, a beautiful and welcoming city with centuries of history. Located in the South of Spain, it has two international airports just one hour by car (Malaga and Seville), as well as connection with Madrid via high-speed train. Cordoba is soaked in history, as evidenced by the large number of archaeological Roman and Muslim remains. The Roman Forum, the Mezquita, Madinat Al-Zahra, the Jewish quarter…so many places to visit and enjoy.

In this workshop of Biorefinery of Ligenocellulosic Material, we would like to invite researchers to submit original research in order to deepen the knowledge of bio-refinery based on lignocellulosic materials.

The scientific program will be held at the Rectorate of the University of Córdoba, a beautiful neo-Mudéjar building, located in the Avenue of Medina Azahara and considered to be one of the emblematic buildings of the city. A three-day Scientific Programme will include plenary keynotes, keynote lectures, and poster sessions.

The Organizing Committee is looking forward to your attendance to the Congress , which will be a scientific and social success.

We wait for you in Córdoba in 2015!
