    This year's Sensometrics meeting was a great event, thanks to everyone who was involved as organizer, contributor, attendee, or in any other function.

    Conference material will be made available soon in the meetings section.

    We also had our annual general meeting during the conference; minutes will be posted in due time in the members only section (login required).

    I want to take the opportunity to thank the outgoing committee members John Ennis (secretary), Dominic Buck and Rune Christensen for their service to the society over the past 4 years.

    Also, I'd like to congratulate the newly elected members and wish them all success in their new role:

    John Castura (chair)
    Brian Guthrie (secretary)
    Cécile Bavay (ordinary member)
    Nicolas Pineau (ordinary member)

    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!

    Chris Findlay, Paul McNicholas, & John Castura
