The two major research facilities the MAX IV synchrotron and the European Spallation Source (ESS) will open up unique opportunities for the advancement of research in many fields in the Öresund-Kattegatt-Skagerack region. This is especially true for the food science research, where both research institutions and food industry are particularly important in the region. Synchrotron X-ray and Neutron techniques have already in the past revealed structure of casein micelles in milk, the structure of fat, food protein structures in bulk and interfaces as well as emulsion structures. The development of the two new sources in the region, as well as existing large scale facilities, have open up new possibilities to study complex food system.
Thus, MAX IV and ESS invites you to join the workshop on Synchrotron X-ray and Neutron application to Food Science and Technology on 5-6 December 2017 in Lund, Sweden. The workshop is organized within the EU Interreg project ESS & MAX IV: Cross Border Science and Society (MAX4ESSFUN) in hopes that it will inspire you as a food scientist in academia and industry to make use of the new opportunities MAX IV and ESS offer.
The program of the workshop will offer talks from prominent food scientist and neutron and x-ray specialist who have worked with food applications. But you are also encouraged to actively participate in discussions, poster and oral presentations and you are thus encouraged to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation based on relevant research, but also just open question you think that neutron and x-rays can help you answer.
The workshop will be held at Scandic Star, Lund and starts with lunch on 5 December and finish on 6 December. The participation is free but limited to 60 people.
Deadline for registration and abstract submission is 15 November.
