The Organizing Committee of the 1st International Meeting on Deep Eutectic Systems welcomes you to Lisbon. The Meeting will be held in the Rectorate of Universidade Nova de Lisboa, in the centre of Lisbon, between 24-27th of June 2019.This is the 1st meeting of what we expect to be a fruitful series of meetings, where Scientists, Students and Industry Partners discuss current developments and innovations based on the extraordinary properties of deep eutectic systems. The field is expanding into many different areas and, from knowledge to application development, it is interesting to see how broad the spectrum of talks goes. Themes like fundamental properties, scale up of processes, and development of new products, techniques and approaches will be addressed. The main objective of a seminar of this type is to bring together a group of specialists in this emerging field and be able, not only to hear the newest developments and discoveries, but also to discuss and interact with students and other participants in an informal environment. This way, we are able to create a unique opportunity of dissemination of results and discussion of new ideas that might be implemented or tried. We will have plenary lectures, oral communications and poster sessions, which we believe to cover all the most innovative scientific developments. We are also aiming to have industrial contributions in order to promote bridges from science to society. We hope that you leave inspired, not only by the science but also by the beautiful and unique light of Lisbon and its hills. Thank you for helping us organizing such an interesting scientific meeting.
