When: 24 – 27 September 2024

Location: Wageningen University and Research in Wageningen, The Netherlands

This conference, created in 1975 in memory of Cornelius Weurman and held every three years in different countries in Europe, is an internationally recognised Symposium gathering well-known scientists from academia and industry from different disciplines in the field of flavour research: chemistry, biology, neurophysiology and psychology.

The local organizers invite scientists with expertise covering different topics in flavour science, from flavour generation in food/non-food products to flavour perception, well-being and health to attend the symposium and submit abstracts. The scientific programme comprises of keynote lectures given by distinguished scientists from academia, scientific talks, flash poster presentations, and posters in the following main subject areas:

  • Multimodal flavour perception: from mixtures of compounds to brain integration
  • Flavour perception: from molecules to receptors to perception
  • Role of flavour in food intake and well-being
  • Flavour representation (naturality, authenticity)
  • Flavour generation
  • Modelling flavour compounds activity
  • New analytical tools for flavour analysis
