    On the 16th of November, a seminar with invited speakers was held at Nofima (Ås in Norway) in honour of Tormod Næs who will go into official retirement in 2024. The speakers represented a variety of the researchers he has collaborated with for a number of years and who have become good friends. Thus, the one-day seminar provided a cross sectional overview of his contributions to chemometrics and sensometrics, both from the application side and the mathematical side. Even if Tormod officially will retire in 2024, he says he will still be active and continue collaboration with his science friends. Tormod has worked at Nofima (previously Matforsk) since the beginning of the 80’s and has also been affiliated with the University of Oslo, Copenhagen University, University of Naples Federico II, and Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU). He has co-authored 6 books, co-edited two books and has almost 260 registrations in scopus.

    When: 11th -15th September 2023

    Where: ETSI Agronómica, Alimentaria y de Biosistemas (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid), Madrid, Spain

    During the last two decades or so, new methods of sensory analysis have gained ground. Among these methods, we single out Free Sorting Task, Check All That Apply, Projective Mapping also called Naping, TDS and TCATA. These methods yield specific and interesting data that the practitioner needs to analyze taking account of both, the data nature and the objective to be pursued. We will give an overview of the statistical strategies of analysis devoted to such an aim. These strategies encompass standard multivariate methods (e.g., Principal Components Analysis and Correspondence Analysis) and Multiblock data Analyses (e.g., Generalized Procrustes Analysis and Multiple Factor Analysis).

    Similarly to previous editions of AEPAS Sensometrics course, the course will take place in a Computers room at the ETSI Agronómica, Alimentaria y de Biosistemas (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid). This course includes new and more advanced contents than previous editions. We count with excellent international lecturers, with recognised experience in the different techniques. The language of the course will be English and the course is planned to have a good balance between theory and practice. Practicals will use typical datasets of the sensory and consumer field and will be analysed with the free software R.

    Besides of the 3-day main course, it is possible to enroll two additional workshops (before and/or after the main course) on R and on Structural Equation Modelling, respectively (see attached program). A reduced fee will be applied to attendees registered to the three activitites.

    The modalities and fees (in euros) are as follows:

    Admission applications may be sent since 16th January 2023 by email to  aepas.etsiaab@upm.es, indicating in the subject “Application Sensometrics Course”. The message should include the fee modality to be applied (E3S next generation WG, E3S member, ANSWER, SSP, Senselatam members, etc…).

    There is a limited number of seats which will be assigned according to the admission application message date. AEPAS will confirm the reservation and will provide the details for payment after 17th April 2023. Any interested attendee needing confirmation of booking before 17th april should ask for it by email. Fees reduction will need to be justified (e.g. certificate of membership to a sensory society, student certificate, etc…). It is recommended to apply for admission as soon as possible.

    Abstract submission deadline, 3 April 2023

    The Sensometric Society in collaboration with the 15th Pangborn Sensory Science Symposium will organize sensometrics tutorials on the morning of 20 August 2023 before the conference.

    The call for proposals is open for all current members of the Sensometric Society*, to propose tutorials addressing the following topics:

    • Multivariate data analysis in sensory and consumer research
    • Text analysis for sensory and consumer scientists
    • Applications of machine learning / artificial intelligence
    • Product optimization and drivers of liking analysis
    • Data visualization and interpretation

    The tutorials should have a duration of 3 to 4 hours, for an audience of sensory and consumer scientists interested in the analysis of data using sensometric methods. When submitting, the authors have the option to specify the proficiency of participants (basic or intermediate statistical understanding). The tutorials can be instructed by one or two persons, and each will receive a courtesy registration fee for the conference and gala dinner.

    *Non-members of the Sensometric Society can also submit abstracts for tutorials under the condition they become a Sensometric Society member by April 30, 2023 at the latest.

    London, March 9 & 10, 2023

    Do you create consumer surveys yet feel lost or underequipped in trying to make the most out of the responses? Once you have collected data from hundreds, perhaps thousands of consumers – where do you begin in in trying to draw meaningful conclusions, that can influence business decision making and deliver true insights? Do you feel somewhat anxious with the many statistical methods that you’ve heard about but don’t really understand how to apply them, or what differentiates one method from another?

    If you feel like the above applies to you, don’t worry — you’re not alone! That’s why Qi Statistics has developed a comprehensive two-day face-to-face course that covers numerous business scenarios and relevant statistical methods. By the end of the course you will have practised several techniques with worked examples using  XLSTAT and have worked solutions to use for when you repeat the analyses back in your work environment.

    Analysis methods will include but limited to: cross-tabs, ANOVA, multiple correspondence analysis, regression, factor analysis, clustering techniques and analysis of textual data.

    Savannah, Georgia, USA

    The pandemic of 2020 forced sensory and consumer science to adapt to a new, decentralized world. Through this adaption, the sensory field achieved an accelerated rate of progress that forever changed it for the better. This year, we are celebrating the diversity of technologies, opinions, cultures, and methodologies that has allowed sensory and consumer science to thrive under adverse conditions. At the 2022 SSP Conference, we will look forward to a brighter future as we emerge from this difficult time stronger than ever.

    Our theme—Surviving to Thriving: Sensory Opportunity in a Decentralized Age​—unites the conference program around the distributed nature of our industry and brings together the sensory professional profession with the allied industries of tech, psychology, academia, and UX. The principles from this diverse set of practices are ripe for adaptation and inclusion in field of sensory science.

    We invite you to join us we come together to develop the science that will push the sensory field forward in 2022 and beyond!
