​​Submission Deadline: Closed 

Submission for workshops at the 2022 SSP will be accepted in order to have a chance to get a more in-depth perspective of a topic. We have added a further stream of Workshops to the program and included a new dimension with a 'Learn-shop' presentation format. This is similar to a workshop—facilitated by academic and industry leaders. These educational and engaging interactive Learn-shops will have typically fewer participants than regular Workshops and will provide a chance to contribute, learn and discuss about new approaches and techniques in consumer and sensory science in smaller groups. Hands-on activities using product samples, via cell phones and/or questionnaires are highly encouraged. A high level of audience engagement and feedback opportunities are preferred.

Workshop submissions will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Concurrence with the objectives and themes of the conference
  • Originality and scientific/strategic merit
  • Usefulness to the conference participants
  • Inclusion of interaction between facilitators and workshop participants
  • Potential for success
  • Likelihood of attendance​

In addition:

  • Workshop proposals must present novel technical information with supporting data and proposed or proven applications.
  • Workshops and Learn-shops are 60 minutes in length.
  • Submissions should be thorough and include as many specific details as possible.
  • Workshops that emphasize interaction between presenters and participants is preferred.
  • Presentations should strive to construct activities that allow every attendee to participate.
  • Submissions that appear to be advertisements for proprietary products or services will not be accepted. Presentations that include advertisements for proprietary products or services are not appropriate.​
