International Conference on Food Oral Processing
The University of Wageningen (NL) hosts conference in June 2014
PThis meeting is the third in a series of conferences aimed at the study of the principles and mechanisms of food oral processing. The first editions of the conference were held in Leeds, United Kingdom, in 2010 and Beaune, France, in 2012, and were well attended by more than 200 participants from both industry and academia. The positive response on the first two conferences has provided a strong incentive for a continuation of the conference series. With its setting in the 'Food Valley' in The Netherlands, Wageningen University will provide an inspiring background for this third event.
The purpose of the conference is to stimulate scientific discussion and interdisciplinary research in food science and technology, oral physiology and biology, sensory science, psychology, dentistry, biophysics and biochemistry, human nutrition and other relevant scientific disciplines. The conference will bring together a diverse group of scientists from those disciplines, who will present and discuss their latest findings on the physical, physiological, and psychological aspects of eating and sensory appreciation in relation to food oral processing. The conference will provide a unique opportunity for industrial researchers to meet with academics for knowledge transfer and to establish research collaborations. The conference format is designed to be highly interactive, with ample time for stimulating discussions, interdisciplinary interactions, and meetings alongside the scientific sessions.
