Since its birthday in 2005, the Summer Program in Sensory Evaluation, SPISE, has grown from the size of a workshop to that of an international Symposium: The SPISE2007 “New Trends in Sensory Evaluation of Food and Non-food Products” and we hope it will continue to grow.

On behalf of the organizing committee we have the great honor to announce the SPISE2009 symposium FOOD CONSUMER INSIGHTS IN ASIA: CURRENT ISSUES AND FUTURE, which will be organized from August 7-9, 2009 at the HoChiMinh-city University of Technology in Vietnam. This meeting aims to offer the opportunity for all delegates to present their latest works in sensory and food consumer research to give insights into one of the most challenging fields of study in sensory science: Consumer Understanding. This symposium also provides a chance for delegates from academic and industrial to exchange ideas on issues related to the symposium’s topics and to their research interests.

We plan to continue the successful program features of SPISE2007 with an opening ceremony, workshops and symposium sessions allowing for a variety of oral and poster presentations covering a wide scope of new ideas related to sensory and consumer research, a banquet with Vietnamese flavor, and many occasions to meet colleagues and start new collaborations.

We are pleased to announce the following keynote speakers of the SPISE2009: Dr. John Prescott, Assoc.-Professor at University of Newcastle, Australia; Dr. Agnès Giboreau, Research Director at Paul Bocuse Institute, France; and Dr. Thongchai Suwonsichon, Assoc.-Professor at Kasetsart University, Thailand.

In addition, we would like to invite you to join in a Workshop on Consumer Research, which will be held from August 3-6, 2009. This Workshop aims to provide participants with methodologies to deepen their understandings of consumers’ food choices and preferences. The instructors of this workshop are from universities in Vietnam, France, and The United States of America.

We will be delighted to welcome you and about other 200 delegates to SPISE2009 to explore Asian Consumer Insights and the largest and dynamic city in Vietnam – Ho Chi Minh City.

Please refer to the brochure, poster and the rest of this web for detail information about SPISE2009 Symposium and Workshop.
