October 12 - 15, 2021 - Utrecht, The Netherlands

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 61st ICBL meeting, which will be held in the historical city center of Utrecht in the Netherlands from Tuesday October 12 till Friday October 15, 2021.

The theme of ICBL2021 will be:

Emerging Lipid Technologies – from molecular species to health and disease.

The meeting will include plenary lectures by established and young scientists, the Van Deenen lecture, poster presentations, as well as opportunities for networking and social activities.


The conference will be organized in full compliance with the local and (inter)national corona-related measures. The vaccination programme in The Netherlands is on schedule. The first vaccination round will be completed by the midst of July and everyone will have received their second vaccination before September 1stWe therefore expect that the meeting can proceed on-site with participants who have been vaccinated and who are in possession of such a certificate. Certification will be in compliance with EU regulation and is currently under development.

If the meeting cannot proceed on-site, the meeting will switch to an online format and the corresponding difference in the registration fee will be reimbursed. The speakers and participants will be informed well in advance.


We look forward to welcoming you in Utrecht!
