    Abstract submission deadline, 3 April 2023

    The Sensometric Society in collaboration with the 15th Pangborn Sensory Science Symposium will organize sensometrics tutorials on the morning of 20 August 2023 before the conference.

    The call for proposals is open for all current members of the Sensometric Society*, to propose tutorials addressing the following topics:

    • Multivariate data analysis in sensory and consumer research
    • Text analysis for sensory and consumer scientists
    • Applications of machine learning / artificial intelligence
    • Product optimization and drivers of liking analysis
    • Data visualization and interpretation

    The tutorials should have a duration of 3 to 4 hours, for an audience of sensory and consumer scientists interested in the analysis of data using sensometric methods. When submitting, the authors have the option to specify the proficiency of participants (basic or intermediate statistical understanding). The tutorials can be instructed by one or two persons, and each will receive a courtesy registration fee for the conference and gala dinner.

    *Non-members of the Sensometric Society can also submit abstracts for tutorials under the condition they become a Sensometric Society member by April 30, 2023 at the latest.

    Do you create consumer surveys yet feel lost or underequipped in trying to make the most out of the responses? Once you have collected data from hundreds, perhaps thousands of consumers – where do you begin in in trying to draw meaningful conclusions, that can influence business decision making and deliver true insights? Do you feel somewhat anxious with the many statistical methods that you’ve heard about but don’t really understand how to apply them, or what differentiates one method from another?

    If you feel like the above applies to you, don’t worry — you’re not alone! That’s why Qi Statistics has developed a comprehensive two-day face-to-face course that covers numerous business scenarios and relevant statistical methods. By the end of the course you will have practised several techniques with worked examples using  XLSTAT and have worked solutions to use for when you repeat the analyses back in your work environment.

    Analysis methods will include but limited to: cross-tabs, ANOVA, multiple correspondence analysis, regression, factor analysis, clustering techniques and analysis of textual data.

    The pandemic of 2020 forced sensory and consumer science to adapt to a new, decentralized world. Through this adaption, the sensory field achieved an accelerated rate of progress that forever changed it for the better. This year, we are celebrating the diversity of technologies, opinions, cultures, and methodologies that has allowed sensory and consumer science to thrive under adverse conditions. At the 2022 SSP Conference, we will look forward to a brighter future as we emerge from this difficult time stronger than ever.

    Our theme—Surviving to Thriving: Sensory Opportunity in a Decentralized Age​—unites the conference program around the distributed nature of our industry and brings together the sensory professional profession with the allied industries of tech, psychology, academia, and UX. The principles from this diverse set of practices are ripe for adaptation and inclusion in field of sensory science.

    We invite you to join us we come together to develop the science that will push the sensory field forward in 2022 and beyond!
