The Italian Sensory Science Society and the European Sensory Science Society have the pleasure to invite you to the 8th E3S Sensory Science Symposium “Tasting the Future in Sensory and Consumer Science”.
The E3S Symposium will bring together renowned speakers from industry and academia to review and discuss the emerging directions in sensory and consumer science with a focus on cross-age and cross-gender issues. Age- and gender-related differences in food perception, liking and choice are notoriously important within the discipline of sensory and consumer science and are one of the main challenges for food companies.
The symposium will aim to promote, disseminate and exchange national and international research outputs in this highly topical research area.
Deadline for registrations: May 17th 2019
Deadline for abstract submission – Best Student Flash Presentation: April 15th 2019
Registration to the symposium is 100 euro and will include registration to the SISS for 2019.
Registration for SISS members is free of charge.
