    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!

    Dear all,

    during this year's AGM, the terms of four society committee members ended, leading so some changes on the committee. I'd like to thank John Castura, Anne Hasted, Barbara Pfeiffer and Thierry Worch for their great contributions during the past couple of years. While Barbara and Thierry will continue in a different position on the committee, John and Anne will retire from the committee (for now), and I would like to thank both of them again for their invaluable efforts during the last 4 years. This includes (but is not limited to) in particular the website renewal and the extensive automation of the membership application and renewal processes, from which the society will benefit for years to come. Thanks for all your efforts for the society.

    I am also very pleased that the following members were elected for a 4-year term on the committee:

    • Barbara Pfeiffer (vice-chair)
    • Thierry Worch (treasurer) 
    • Chantal Gilbert (ordinary member)
    • Gastón Ares (ordinary member)

    Thanks to all of them for committing your time and energey to the society.

    Please join me in congratulating them on their election and in wishing them a succesful and also enjoyable time on the committee.

    The Sensometrics 2014 meeting is history, but many of the ideas that have been presented and discussed during the meeting are only about to start flourish.

    I'd like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who helped making the meeting such a great event, first and foremost the local organizers Tom Carr, Richard Popper and Ruta Lesniauskas and their team, as well as John Castura and his scientific committee.

    Yet, a meeting would not be worth anything without the many great oral and poster presentations, or without an engaged audience throughout the discussions.

    It would be impossible to name everyone, but thanks to all that that have contributed their share to make this a great and memorable event.

    Looking forward to meeting you in Brighton in 2016 (if not before),

    Michael (chair)
