The primary objective of the conference is to promote understanding of the complex microbial ecosystems present in the digestive tract of mammals and other higher animals and their interaction with their hosts. It is a unique forum for researchers working to improve health, nutrition and wellbeing of humans and animals through dietary manipulations, and to any scientist interested in the ecology and function of the gastrointestinal microbiota. The symposium also offers scientists working in the human and animal sphere the opportunity to exchange information regarding the utilisation of in vitro and in vivo models and techniques.
