You are cordially invited to attend the 1st AfroSense conference from 23 - 26 November 2015 at STIAS, Stellenbosch University, South Africa.

If you want to know where sensory science is going in Europe and Africa, this international conference is where you should be as the world’s sensory and consumer scientists share cutting edge talks, collaborate with scientists from around the world and discuss challenging issues facing industry and academia.

As this is the first international conference of its kind on African soil, the needs, challenges and opportunities of different African regions will also be addressed.

The AfroSense conference concludes on Thursday 26 November with a ½-day workshop focussing on rapid sensory methods that are ideally suited for R & D within the industry environment.

A postconference Half-day Workshop aimed at methods to understand consumers’ motivations from  a cross- cultural perspective:  Focus on psychological and cultural aspects will be held on Friday 27 November 2015 (09:00-14:00) and presented by Dominique Valentin.
