The Nonthermal Processing Division of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT-NPD) and the European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST) have been organizing Annual Workshops on Nonthermal Processing Technologies to Process Foods over the last two decades. Earlier workshops alternated between the USA and European sites. Lately, because of the growing worldwide interest in nonthermal processing technologies, several countries outside the US and Europe have been organizing and hosting these workshops.
Guidelines to Prepare EFFoST / IFT-NPD Workshop Proposals
Those interested in hosting a workshop in a given year should have informal consultations with IFT-NPD and/or EFFoST well in advance prior to the proposed workshop. All groups interested in organizing and hosting workshops should submit a proposal to IFT-NPD and/or EFFoST Executive Committees for consideration following the guidelines and schedule included in this document.
