OXFORD, England, November 24, 2010 - Elsevier, the leading publisher of scientific,
technical and medical information products and services, today announced that
the 9th Pangborn Sensory Science Symposium (www.pangborn2011.com/ )
has been confirmed, taking place in Kyoto, Japan on 4-8 September 2011.

With the last symposium attracting 1000 delegates, Pangborn is the most
prestigious conference within the field of sensory science and is the only
meeting that allows sensory science practitioners to discover, discuss and
develop the latest in fundamental and applied sensory science.

For the first time the Pangborn Symposium will engage directly with the
field of sensory science in Asia. For this purpose we have chosen the ancient
and beautiful city of Kyoto famed for its historic temples, exquisite gardens
and glimpses into the traditional Japanese way of life.

The Scientific Committee composed of acknowledged opinion leaders in
sensory science from across the spectrum of research areas will work
alongside organizers from Elsevier to develop a multidisciplinary programme,
covering areas such as fundamentals of sensory perception, consumer research,
sensometrics, sensory analysis and quality assurance.

"The Pangborn Sensory Science Symposia consistently provide researchers
with a marvelous opportunity to share knowledge and network with their
peers," said Lyndon Driscoll, Elsevier Executive Publisher. "We look forward
to bringing the event to Kyoto in 2011."

    - Fundamentals of sensory perception
