Welcome Message
Welcome to the 9th International Symposium on 'Delivery of Functionality in Complex Food Systems' (DOF 2021).

This series of Symposia have managed to gather, throughout the years, an interdisciplinary team of scientists from different research areas (food science and engineering, biophysics, applied soft matter, food technology, applied human nutrition) and very different proveniences (from academia, industry and young researchers) and places around the world.

The DOF 2021 meeting will be hold in Macao. Macao is the single most consistent example of cultural interchange between Europe and Asia; the official languages are Chinese and Portuguese. Having developed into a bustling city with a worldwide reputation in entertainment, Macao is also at the heart of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, which promotes its fast development in IT education, research, and industry in recent years.

Macao is easy to travel to: it is connected directly to Hong Kong International Airport and Shenzhen International Airport by high-speed ferry, which is only a 60 minutes journey. The longest bridge in the world connecting Hong Kong and Macao is supposed to be opened in late 2018; this will further reduce the transfer time. Macao International Airport is just located in the city center, about five minutes drive to the hotel and convention centers. Macao can be entered without visa or with one issued on arrival for most countries; visitors from over 200 countries enjoy this policy.
