    We were saddened to hear of the death of our friend and colleague André Arbogast, who passed away suddenly on August 18, 2016 at the age of 56. André was a very active and respected member of the sensory community and a long-time member and supporter of the Sensometric Society. He was well known especially to Fizz software users, and he helped to establish connections between different teams in France and worldwide. The European Sensory Society (E3S) has organized the collection of tributes in remembrance; please visit for details.

    For the first time, the Sensometric Society organized tutorials at the EuroSense symposium, held in Dijon, France, on September 11, 2016. We are very pleased that 89 participants registered for the tutorials, which exceeded our expectations quite a bit. Many thanks to the 8 presenters involved in the 5 different tutorials, and to our colleagues from Elsevier for the great cooperation in organizing these.

    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
