The 10th International Conference on Predictive Modelling in Food will take place on 26-29 September 2017 in Córdoba, Spain. Abstracts are invited for oral and poster presentation at the conference by 17 March 2017.

The International Committee on Predictive Modelling in Food, which was founded in 2011, has the mission to promote the development of predictive models and to generate new knowledge in the field that are relevant to food stakeholders, risk assessors and governmental authorities. This objective is primarily achieved through advancing the success and sustainability of the biennial ICPMF-conferences.

The next International Conference on Predictive Modelling in Food will take place on 8-12 September 2015 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Abstracts are invited for oral and poster presentation at the conference by 23 April 2015.

IFR’s Professor Mike Peck and Dr Aline Metris have both been invited to present at the International Association of Food Protection’s (IAFP) European Symposium on Food Safety.

Professor Peck will be presenting two separate invited talks about his research on Clostridium botulinum within the sessions Bacterial spores in foods: Safety and Quality aspects and Stochastic Approaches for an Enhanced Control of Spore Germination and Development in Food Products.

IAFP’s European symposium has been shaping the future of food safety since 2005 by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas with colleagues from across Europe working in industry, government and academia. The Symposium is an excellent forum to gain knowledge about the latest developments and techniques in food science and safety.
