9th International Conference on Predictive Modelling in Food

8-12 September 2015 | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The International Committee on Predictive Modelling in Food, Elsevier and the University of Campinas are pleased to welcome you to the 9th International Conference on Predictive Modelling in Foods (ICPMF), which will be held at the Windsor Barra Hotel located on the beach-front of Barra da Tijuca, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 9th ICPMF Conference aims to discuss food quality and safety issues faced globally through quantitative approaches encompassing predictive and risk modelling. The conference has a great focus on the practical impacts that predictive and risk modeling can have on food industries and public health throughout the world. The potential of omics technologies to improve our understanding of microbial behaviour in foods and even how models are built will also be approached.

The 9th ICPMF aims to boost interactions between academia and industry in order to allow innovations driven by predictive and risk models to be built in. The conference expects to bring together the food industry, researchers, professors, young scientists, government agencies and students to discuss the most relevant subjects in the field and to advance the dissemination and further application of predictive and risk modelling to improve food quality and safety, aiming to safeguard public health and enhance the microbial stability of foods.

Conference Topics

  1. Single cell modelling
  2. Modelling cross-contamination, modelling under dynamic conditions
  3. Modelling microbial interactions, modelling impact of food structure and biofilms
