Please note you do not need to pre-book for either the workshops or social event. There is also now no cap on the number of attendees for the social event. Both workshops and the social event are only open to registered Pangborn delegates.

In keeping with the traditions of this Symposium from the inaugural meeting in 1992 to honour the memory of Rose Marie Pangborn, the 14th Symposium will showcase the research of fundamental and applied sensory and consumer scientists from a cross section of early and advanced career participants representing industry and academia.

Our high-quality online platform promotes interaction and discussion: Live-stream presentations, ask questions to the speakers, schedule video meetings with poster authors and exhibitors and catch up on sessions you miss with 6-months on-demand access to recordings of all presentations immediately after the event.

The theme for the 14th Symposium ‘Sustainable Sensory Science’ acknowledges the challenges that impact our current research approaches such as food security, globalization, corporate cost cutting, fast-adapt product development, the expansion of data collection, cultural diversity and maintaining the relevance of our discipline to name a few.
