CoFE 24 will cover all areas of food engineering.  Some example topics are listed below, but submissions in other areas are also welcome.

Potential attendees from non-US locations are encouraged to submit abstracts as soon as possible, to allow sufficient time for visa procedures and interviews to be scheduled.

Thermal, nonthermal and combination processing technologies;

Packaging technologies (ecofriendly, active and intelligent packaging)

Food materials science (water activity, glass transition, physical properties, food powders)

Sensors and imaging technologies

Modeling and simulation, including transport and Multiphysics models, multiscale models, and molecular dynamics

Digital and artificial intelligence/machine learning tools, Internet of Things

Microbial and chemical kinetics

Plant protein innovation

Engineering digestion processes

Encapsulation and delivery of bioactive compounds
