After Los Cabos, Baja California (Mexico) in 2012, Jaen (Spain) in 2013 and Concepción (Chile) in 2015, it is the right time to organize the, probably, most important Iberoamerican Congress on Biorefineries now in our 4th edition (4-CIAB) again in Jaén. We hope that our SIADEB members as well as all iberoamerican community on Biorefineries find this event for getting new knowledge about the current developments that are happening in our field both in Europe and Latin American countries. I trust that you all also find this 4-CIAB very fruitful for networking and hoping to meet you in October at Jaén. .
