Call for Abstracts - Neutrons and Food 4
May 31st - June 2nd 2016
Lund, Sweden


Dear Colleagues

Following the success of the previous meetings in Sydney, Delft and Paris, the fourth Neutrons & Food meeting will be held in Lund, Sweden from 31st May to 2nd June 2016.

The call for abstracts is now open! Please submit your abstracts at http://www.neutronsandfood.org

This biennial series of meetings aims to bring together scientists and technologists from the food science community with those expert in the application of scattering methods. Since the first meeting in Sydney, the subject matter has expanded beyond neutron scattering to include other scattering and radiographic methods. This year we will be incorporating a session dedicated to the final meeting of the project "New X-ray Imaging Modalities for High Quality and Safe Food” lead by Robert Karup Feidenhans’l from Copenhagen University.

We welcome participants and contributions from the wider community of food science and product development, food packaging, and nutrition, as well as scattering.

The construction of two new large scale facilities in Lund - namely MaxIV Laboratory and the European Spallation Source - will open new opportunities for application of synchrotron and neutron techniques in food science.

This year’s meeting is also held in conjunction with the Swedish Neutron Scattering Society meeting (30th - 31st May) and we have a joint keynote speaker - Prof. John White from ANU - on the morning of the 31st May.

There will be a tour of the MaxIV Laboratory - due to have first light in June this year - and the ESS construction site on the afternoon of the 31st May.

We look forward to seeing you in Lund.

Best Regards

On behalf of the organising committee:
Prof. Tommy Nylander
Dr. Andrew Jackson
