Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the Second Propolis Conference
Propolis in human and bee health conference - Sofia 2018, to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, on 28 – 29 September 2018. The inspiring success of the First Propolis Conference in Glasgow, 2016, with over 100 participants, demonstrated a growing community of researchers round the world committed to understanding propolis and developing its potential.

The scientific program of the Second Propolis Conference focuses on the latest developments as well as the future outlook of all related aspects of propolis research and application, such as chemistry, biological activity, importance to bees, analyses, standardization, synergy, medical applications, applications in food industry, etc. A rich social program throughout the conference will also be provided for informal interactions. You will have the opportunity to become a member of the International Propolis Research Group, which was formed in autumn last year, based on the energy and enthusiasm generated in Glasgow.

The host city of the Conference Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria, a place of ancient and contemporary culture with a great vibe to all generations.

Looking forward to seeing you in Sofia in 2018.
Vassya Bankova, PhD, DSc
Chair of the Organizing Committee
