Charles R. Stumbo Student Paper Competition
IFTPS invites papers from students presenting researched progress in methodologies, techniques, system technologies, or other topics relevant to thermal and/or non-thermal processing of food or biological materials including pharmaceuticals to make them shelf stable by inactivating pathogenic and spoilage-causing microorganisms.
All undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in an accredited university program are eligible to enter. Manuscripts submitted for competition should follow the style provided in J. Food Sci. 55:597.
The student author of the award-winning manuscript will receive a cash prize of $2000 and be recognized as a featured speaker at the Institute’s annual meeting. Free conference and symposium registrations will be provided as well as a one-year membership in the Institute including the opportunity to utilize IFTPS’ career employment services for possible placement within the field of thermal processing. The second and third place winners will get $1000 and $500, respectively and a recognition certificate.
Manuscripts will be evaluated by a jury of IFTPS members for content and relevance to the advancement of knowledge in thermal and/or non-thermal processing used to produce shelf stable foods and biological materials. Selection of the student recipient by the jury will be final and contingent upon the presentation of the paper by the recipient at the IFTPS annual meeting.
The 2014 Annual Meeting will be held March 11- 14, 2014 at the Wyndham Orlando Resort, 8001 International Drive, Orlando, Florida
