A one-day interactive conference organised by IFSTs Sensory Science Group (SSG)
The 2017 SSG Conference will take a fresh look at the Sensory Modalities: appearance, aroma, flavour, texture and aftertaste.
The event will comprise presentation, workshops and posters. Speakers from academia and industry will highlight new developments in our understanding of how the sensory modalities are perceived; explore the practicalities involved in making assessments and measurements; and assess the role of new techniques in improving our understanding of how the modalities interact to create our overall product experience.
This Conference will be of value to Sensory and Consumer scientists working in the Food, Beverage, Personal and Home Care sectors who want to stay up to date with the latest developments in their field.
The SSG Conference typically attracts approximately 100 delegates from a range of industries providing a great networking opportunity for all.
