The 2019 ILSI Annual Meeting is a premiere gathering of scientists from around the world. The primary focus of the meeting is to learn about new food safety and nutrition science and identify areas where ILSI can have an impact on public health. This multidisciplinary meeting is an opportunity for experts from all sectors to collaborate and share knowledge.
The Science Symposium includes presentations on new technologies in the following thematic areas:
New Technologies Advancing Accuracy in Food Intake and Physical Activity Assessment
Thursday January 10 | 8:40 - 10:40 am
This session will explore advances in technologies and tools to improve accuracy of food intake and physical activity assessment with a global perspective. Speakers will consider the availability of new technologies for application in developing countries, as well as first world countries, for health promotion and improvement of public health.
New Technologies and Approaches in Microbiota Research for Managing Food Safety
Thursday January 10 | 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
This session will examine innovations in food safety employing transformational technologies and approaches in animal microbiota research to combat pathogens in the food supply impacting human health.
How Can New Technology Impact Research Studies?
Thursday January 10 | 2:30 - 4:30 pm
This session will explore novel approaches and new technologies in study design, beyond traditional analytical methods and design.
New Technologies and Applications in Food Science
Friday January 11 | 8:00 - 10:30 am
This session will present new technologies in food science for the development of new foods and ingredients, innovations beyond preservation, and applications for food safety, in response to consumer demands, needs and expectations.
Novel Foods and the Future: Challenges & Benefits of New Technologies
Friday January 11 | 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
This session will explore the potential benefits and accompanying challenges of the latest new technologies to create novel foods and ingredients.
Food Processing & Food Waste: State of Technology
Friday January 11 | 2:30 - 4:30 pm
This session will explore opportunities through new technologies for reducing food waste.
ILSI’s mission is to provide science that improves human health and well-being and safeguards the environment. There is no substitute for the in-person engagement that has come to define ILSI’s Annual Meetings. Each year, we join scientific colleagues from academia, government, industry, and civil society for state-of-the-science symposia, keynote lectures, networking events, and ILSI branch meetings.
Get the latest information in new technologies and innovations for diet and activity assessment, study design, food safety, novel foods, and food processing & waste. The scientific program at the ILSI Annual Meeting is relevant for all experts in the food safety and nutrition communities.
Nothing beats the value of interacting with colleagues in-person. ILSI brings scientific thought leaders together from all sectors, allowing for face-to-face discussion and collaboration to solve and identify some of the biggest challenges facing the food safety and nutrition community.
Attending ILSI Annual Meetings allows participants to take a step back and look at challenges in nutrition, food safety, and health through the viewpoint of colleagues that they don't engage with normally.
Attending ILSI Annual Meetings allows participants to draw attention to challenges that not everyone is aware of. It is a chance to connect with other experts and take a leadership role while using the resources and network provided by the unique ILSI platform.
