Early Career Researcher Seminar

Early Career Researcher Seminar

“A Pangborn seminar for all, organised and delivered by our Early Career Researchers”

28 July 2019, 10.00 – 13.00

Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), Edinburgh, Scotland

Starting a new legacy for the future: the Pangborn Early Career Researcher seminar

The Pangborn symposium provides a platform to share and be inspired with cutting edge research. It also is an excellent learning environment for early career researchers to develop knowledge, discover methods, foster confidence and build sensory networks. This year, we have an amazing new addition to our main Pangborn symposium; the Early Career Researchers seminar. The seminar is organised to create a memorable, relevant event delivering scientific excellence to delegates from a broad background, supporting the Pangborn principles of supporting students, passing knowledge to the next generation and connecting professionals. We aim to support early career researchers - students and researchers with up to 5 years’ experience in the sensory field after completing their studies - by providing the basis for knowledge exchange and connecting with professionals.

The first ever Early Career Researchers seminar will be held on the Sunday morning, 10.30am, prior to the opening of the main Pangborn symposium on the Sunday afternoon. The event will focus on the future of Sensory & Consumer science, in the view of students and early career researchers, and a number of oral presentation slots are up for grabs. The seminar is created and organised by a student committee, and will be chaired by Mikel Cirkus, Global Director of Conceptual Design at Firmenich Flavours, and will feed into the main Pangborn symposium.

We are delighted to invite students and early career researchers to submit abstracts to present at this exciting event. Ten lucky delegates will be invited to deliver an 8 minute oral flash poster presentation detailing their poster which will have been accepted to present at the main Pangborn symposium. In addition, fifteen more delegates will be invited to present a 1 minute flash presentation describing where they see the future of sensory or consumer science in relation to their specialist field. We are particularly interested what delegates from around the world see the challenges and changes in sensory science for the next years. We would therefore love to see video applications as part of the application process, where you can tell us some of your ideas about the future of Sensory and Consumer Science!

Submissions for the Pangborn Early Career Researcher Seminar

Submissions for the Pangborn Early Career Researcher Seminar should also be submitted using the main submission form. You can submit your work to be considered for both the ECR Seminar and the main Pangborn Symposium.

Speaking slots for this event are limited to students and early career researchers only – with up to 5 years’ experience in sensory/consumer area.

To be considered for the Pangborn Early Career Researcher Seminar we are asking all students and early career researchers to submit a short video clip (in addition to the video accompanying your research abstract) (don’t worry, it only needs to be 1 minute long!), where you can easily express your ideas.

The video clip is to be submitted in addition to an abstract.

Video clips submitted for the Pangborn Early Career Researcher Seminar, if accepted, may be presented at the seminar.

The content should include the following, but the most attention should be given to point 3:

  • Introduce who you are and your academic/industry association
  • Your main sensory and/or consumer research interest/s
  • Where do you see the future of your main sensory and/or consumer research interest/s over the next 5 years

The presentation should be in English, and should use generic sensory science language, whilst avoiding jargon that is specific to a certain specialism within the field.

Videos will be selected solely on the quality of the content of the presentation, and presentation style (for example passion, clarity and ability to communicate novel and interesting ideas effectively). Therefore, special graphics in the video should be avoided.

To make a submission please use the link on the abstract submission page.
