Neutrons and Food 5 - Oct 16 - 19, 2018, Sydney, Australia

On behalf of the organising committee, we are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for the fifth international Neutrons and Food conference.

Abstract submission is now open at www.neutronsandfood.net<http://www.neutronsandfood.net>

Submissions are sought for the following Topics:

Plant Materials and Carbohydrates
Lipids and Fats
Drinks and Beverages
Proteins and complexes
Food packaging, including Food Quality and Preservation
Digestion, metabolic processes and nutrition, including Vitamins & Minerals
Encapsulation and Controlled release
Processing, including Rheology and Flow
Glassy States of Food and Hydration (Water and Ice)
Food Safety
Food gels and emulsions
Innovative characterisation methods

The closing date for abstracts is 15 May 2018.

We are also delighted to announce our invited speakers:

Prof. Alejandro G. Marangoni - University of Guelph, CANADA
Dr. Yacine Hemar - University of Auckland, NEW ZEALAND
Dr. Marta Martinez-Sanz - Spanish National Research Council, CSIC, SPAIN
Dr. Marie Skepö - Lund University, SWEDEN
Prof. Jan Swenson - Chalmers University of Technology


Following the success of previous meetings in Sydney, Delft, Paris and Lund, we are pleased to announce that Neutrons and Food will be returning to Sydney this year on 16 - 19 October 2018.

The meeting will be held in the heart of Darling Harbour which forms part of our larger Sydney Harbour, recognised as one of the world's most beautiful waterways. Darling Harbour is Sydney's most exciting entertainment precinct and only moments from the heart of Sydney's city centre. It offers multiple accommodation, entertainment and transport options including fine restaurants, museums, a retail marketplace and outdoor entertainment venues.

With neutron scattering remaining at its core, we also wish to extend and showcase nuclear-based techniques more broadly and how they are increasingly being employed. Such examples include neutron activation analysis and isotopic fingerprinting techniques for authenticity and traceability to combat food fraud. It is recognised that neutron methods are often applied in concert with other complementary measurement methods, including X-ray and light scattering, and such contributions where food materials are the focus are warmly invited.

The conference welcomes participants and contributions from the wide community of food science and product development, food packaging, and nutrition, as well as exponents of nuclear-based methods including scattering. In particular we intend to have a mixture of talks from food scientists and technologists with problems where scattering methods may be applicable, as well as talks from those already using scattering and other nuclear-based methods. We also anticipate the opportunity for one-on-one discussions to provide advice on specific problems as well as pre-conference presentations on what some of the techniques have to offer the food science community.

Further details are available on the conference website - www.neutronsandfood.net<http://www.neutronsandfood.net>

We look forward to welcoming you back to Sydney.
