AIM OF FOODSIM'2018

We invite you to participate in the 10th biennial FOODSIM2018, which will be held from April 8-12, 2018, in Ghent, Belgium at the University of Leuven Research Centre. FOODSIM'2018 will bring together researchers, food experts, and industrial users to present state-of-art research, new research results, and to exchange ideas and experiences in the modeling and simulation tools used for food processing, quality, safety and sustainability. The general conference theme is "Simulation applied to food processes, quality, safety, and sustainability", with this year as a specific track "Methods & tools in Beverages Production and Safety", to complement the presentations of the 13th International Trends in Brewing Symposium with which FOODSIM'2018 will be co-located.

Next to the traditional tracks - Modeling and Simulation in Sustainable Food Systems Engineering - Modeling and Simulation in Quantitative Risk Assessment - Modeling and Simulation in Food Safety and Spoilage - Modeling and Simulation in Innovative Food Production and Processing Technologies - Modeling and Simulation in Food Chains - Modeling and Simulation in Life Cycle Assessment - Modeling and Simulation in Climate Change and Environmental Impact - Modeling and Simulation in Food Business and Economics - Modeling and Simulation in Food Process Systems Engineering - Multi-scale Modeling Methods - Multi-objective Optimization Methods - Advanced Software Tools a new track is introduced this year which will look at "Modeling and Simulation in Precision Agriculture and Robotics"

THEMES

The development and use of model simulation in risk analyses, food safety, fermentation, texture and flavour of food products. How simulation models can help to manufacture a consumer-friendly food product on specs with a shorter time-to-market.; The state-of-the-art in modelling of complex food properties. This translates itself into the use of models in process and plant control. Process control based on a set of product specs by application of neural networks, fuzzy logic, cost models and mechanistic models; traceability and logistics management. These aspects are covered by the following

Modeling and Simulation in Sustainable Food Systems Engineering
Modeling and Simulation in Quantitative Risk Assessment
Modeling and Simulation in Food Safety and Spoilage
Modeling and Simulation in Innovative Food Production and Processing Technologies
Modeling and Simulation in Food Chains
Modeling and Simulation in Life Cycle Assessment
Modeling and Simulation in Climate Change and Environmental Impact
Modeling and Simulation in Food Business and Economics
Modeling and Simulation in Precision Agriculture and Robotics
Modeling and Simulation in Food Process Systems Engineering
Multi-scale Modeling Methods

Advanced Software Tools

Workshops

The conference organization is open to suggestions on possible workshops featuring software packages, new hardware or methods used in food simulation. We would like to facilitate the discussions about our research and our new projects.

Workshop proposals should be emailed to Philippe.Geril@eurosis.org, by indicating the type of workshop you would like to organize, before DECEMBER 15, 2017. When preparing a workshop submission, please consider the link to the event and the specific nature of your proposal. A confirmation email will be sent to verify that the proposal was received.

TUTORIALS

Tutorials can be proposed in the following three categories:
T1- Introductory tutorials
T2- State of the Art Tutorials
T3- Software and Modelware Tutorials
Tutorial proposals should be emailed to Philippe.Geril@eurosis.org before NOVEMBER 30TH.

POSTER SESSION

The poster session only features work in progress. Next to the actual poster
presentation, these submissions also feature as short papers in the Proceedings.

STUDENTS SESSION

This session is for students who want to present their work in
progress or part of their doctoral thesis as a paper. Student papers
are denoted by the fact that only the name of the student appears on
the paper as an author. They are published as short papers in the
Proceedings.

DIVERSE ACTIVITIES

For demonstrations or video sessions, please contact EUROSIS.
Special session will be set up for vendor presentations in co-
ordination with the scientific program. User Group meetings for
simulation languages and tools can be organised the day before the
conference. If you would like to arrange a meeting, please contact
the Conference Chairs. We will be happy to provide a meeting room
and other necessary equipment.
Partners for projects session(s) will be organised by EUROSIS to
give potential project teams or individuals the opportunity to
present their research in order to link up with fellow researchers
for future research projects. Those wishing to participate in this
session need to send a proposal to EUROSIS.
A EUROSIS TC Meeting and an EU Project update meeting

EXHIBITION

A special exhibition is envisaged during the conference focused on
industrial applications. For more information please contact EUROSIS for
further details. Email: Philippe.Geril@eurosis.org
The exhbition will be integrated with the exhibition of the
13th International Trends in Brewing Symposium
