Other relevant topics
Abstract preparation guidelines:
Abstract (300 words or less) should provide research justification, objective, methods, results, relevance to food engineering profession and the food industry.
Please use the template below to submit your abstract.
- Abstracts promoting commercial products or technologies without scientific emphasis will not be considered.
- Please proof read abstract prior to submission.
- Organizers reserve the right to reject incomplete abstracts or those do not follow review guidelines.
- While we will make every effort to accommodate your requests (oral or poster) we only have limited space and will be limiting each speaker to one oral presentation only.
