    We are pleased to announce that the 13th Sensometric Meeting will feature a Data Analysis Workshop. The workshop topic is "Appropriate Methods of Imputation for Consumer Hedonic Data".

    The challenge is to perform appropriate data imputation for 570 consumers, each of whom evaluates 6 brown breads in a 16-present-6 sensory-informed balanced incomplete block design. These data were analyzed and discussed by Franczak et al. (2015). For your convenience, the workshop data set is available in two locations: (i) the R package sensory (see bbread), and (ii) on the Sensometrics Data Set Repository (see Brown Bread data).

    To be considered as a potential workshop presenter, please send your abstract to John Castura by May 16, 2016. The abstract (up to 250 words) should summarize your statistical methods, results, and conclusions.

    Data Analysis Workshop presenters will be encouraged to prepare a manuscript for the Sensometrics 2016 special issue of Food Quality and Preference. (However you are permitted to submit your own original manuscripts to any journal of your choice.)

    Thanks & we hope to see you in Brighton-by-the-Sea!

    The Sensometric Society Data Set Repository has gone live! With this repository, we offer access to various sensory data sets, being made available by some members of the society. The data sets can be used freely, e.g. to explore new (and maybe old) idea; if used for other than your purely personal purposes, all you are asked to do is to cite the reference associated with the data set.

    While a couple of data sets are available already, we hope that you will consider contributing some of your data to the repository, too. By that, we intend to grow the repository to a very useful resource e.g. for students and others in need of some real data. (It is OK if some of the information in the data set would need to be masked.) At the same time, if use by others, the data sets might trigger additional references to your own work. Contributing is as easy as writing an email to our web administrator.

    Thanks to John Castura for pushing this forward, and to Chris Findlay and Per Brockhoff for the first contributions.

    Season's Greetings!

    Michael (chair)
