    We plan to build a library of datasets to be hosted on the society’s website. The idea is to encourage the development of new statistical methods by making real data sets available.

    Data sets used in peer-reviewed publications will be of particular interest to us – a note will be added so that any presentations or publications using your data are requested to cite your publication.

    Please contact John Castura, Vice-Chair if you can make one or more of your datasets available on the Sensometric Society website.

    The 11th Sensometrics Meeting took place July 10-13, 2012, in Rennes (France) with 145 participants from all over the world. I would like to thank the organizing and scientific committees for organizing a great and memorable event, in particular Marine Cadoret, Karine Bagory, and Sébastien Lê who successfully led the committees.

    Presentation slides and abstracts are already available on the conference homepage (these will also become availble on the society's website in due course); you can also find some impressions from the meeting.

    The XLSTAT award for the best student work as voted upon by the scientific committee was received by Cécile Bavay for her joint work with R. Symoneaux, I. Maitre, A. Kuznestova, P.B. Brockhoff, and E. Mehinagic on "Methodological development for sensory evaluation of product presenting biological variability: a case study on apple."

    The poster awards (voted upon by all participants) went to:

    1st: Sébastien Berthelo in collaboration with M. Brossier, D. Gourret and J. Pagès: 
    "Another way to treat JAR scales: application to the sensory characterization of products"

    2nd: A. Crine in collaboration with A. Gruel and S. Lê:
    "Ideal Profile Method: an efficient way to improve products?"

    3rd: Minh-Tam Lê in collaboration with Q. Carré and S. Lê:
    "A napping based methodology for quickly getting a model of consumer emotions"

    Congratulation to all awardees.

    The next Sensometrics Meeting is planned to be held July 29-August 1, 2014, in Chicago (IL, USA). While details are yet to be confirmed, please mark this date already now in your calendar.

    Looking forward to meeting you there at the latest,

    Michael Meyners (chair)
