In September 2021, the 4th European Conference on Natural Products will again feature recent advances in secondary metabolite research. With a special emphasis on networking opportunities, the posters exhibition, and the interaction of academic and industrial research, the programme will span a wide range of topics:
You are cordially invited to contribute abstracts of posters to these topics:
Submission for Last minute posters now possible.
Please submit your paper in form of a 1-2 pages abstract as pdf-file.
The abstract should clearly state the motivation of the work, main results obtained and the advance achieved. Figures or tables (1-2) embedded in the abstract and illustrating the results are welcome.
The congress language is English.
If desired, after acception of the abstract, it will be possible to submit an updated version of the abstract incorporating recent results.
The acceptance of the contributions will be based on the review of the abstracts by the Committee.

After each session we have scheduled a Q&A session, where participants have the opportunity to discuss with the speakers. Please schedule this accordingly.
Strict timekeeping will be essential for the smooth running of the conference.
As an online meeting platform we use Converia's Virtual Venue and as presenting platform we use ZOOM.
We recommend to download the ZOOM APP to share your presentation.
We are planning test runs in the week before the conference.
Detailed information will be sent to you in due time.
It is recommended to use Google Chrome or Firefox as your browser.
Please prepare your slides in 16:9 format.
In case you use special software for your presentation or if you have videos included into your file, a test run is recommended.
There will be test sessions running several days before the 4th ECNP so that authors can be well prepared for the online platforms (Converia’s Virtual Venue and Zoom).
More information about this will be sent out in due time.
The poster presentation of latest results is an important facet of the scientific programme. The posters will be presented and numbered according to the final poster programme.
As a major guideline it is proposed to make the poster intelligible in itself, even in the absence of the author. It is suggested to divide the contents of each poster into introduction, results and conclusions, with a summary listing the pertinent results and conclusions.
Standard size for posters is 0.85 x 1.2 m (DIN A0-German Standard) vertically oriented. Therefore, please find the following specifications:
The posters will be shown throughout the whole conference as an e-Poster. Details for upload will be given in due time.
