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
), 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!
