Fast development in many fields of science and technology significantly contributes to rapid development in food and ingredients technology. This development at the same time raises several related issues such as safety, toxicity, efficacy, process design, and regulations. An example is new food product claimed to have certain benefit because it contains nano functional component as a result of strong research activities in nano science and technology. Even though "nano-food" has been in market place, the regulation of this product category is still lack behind.
One of the key points to ensure success of food security program is to minimize strong reliance on imported food and increase the use of local based food. Diverse food ingredients can be potentially developed from local materials such as sweet potato, cassava, etc. This puts challenges to researchers, entrepreneurs, and the government to capitalize the potency that we have.
In order to discuss the issues and challenges, Indonesian Food Technologist Association (PATPI) in collaboration with Department of Food Science and Technology (FST), and Southeast Asian Food and Agricultural Science and Technology (SEAFAST) Center IPB organizes two days conference (September 29-30, 2010) titled Emerging Issues and Technology Development in Foods and Ingredients.
To bring together all stakeholder to disseminate and discuss emerging issues and technology development in foods and ingredients.
Jakarta International Expo, Arena PRJ Kemayoran Jakarta
Scientists, industry practitioners, professionals, and government officials working in the area of foods and food ingredients are encouraged to participate and update themselves with the latest technology development and emerging issues related to foods and ingredients.
The official language of the conference is English and Bahasa Indonesia
The conference will cover three major topics which are:
* 1. Development of local based food ingredient (technology, processing, product development)
* 2. Technology and ingredient for functional foods (chemistry, biochemistry, nutrition, efficacy)
* a. Food for specific purposes
* b. Food for wellness
* 3. Quality and safety aspect on food and ingredient development (microbiology, toxicology, regulation)
Call for Abstracts
Submit abstracts (300 words) in line with the conference theme for oral and/or poster presentation. Extended abstract will be in the program book for participants who already pay the registration fee. Instead of publishing conference proceeding, the organizer will collaborate with Jurnal Ilmu dan Teknologi Pangan to publish the selected papers. For authors who are interested to publish their paper in Jurnal Ilmu dan Teknologi Pangan, they must submit the full paper for further selection. Deadlines for abstract, extended abstract, and full papers submission are as follow:
Abstract : July 1, 2010
