Conference Description

The 10th Pangborn Sensory Science Symposium aims at bringing together professionals of the Sensory and Consumer Science community. It promotes the dissemination of new knowledge and allows young scientists and students to meet senior professionals, contributing to the development of the field. The 10th Pangborn is held for the first time outside Europe and North America, which will be a great moment for congregating all professionals, and will provide opportunities for exploring new horizons; gathering people to the challenge of surpassing the new frontiers of knowledge in all senses.

Join us in turning this already well established scientific event into an unforgettable Brazilian experience. Be one step ahead of the rest of the world and come before the Football World Cup and Olympics to the warm setting of the Wonderful City surrounded by the Brazilian tropical nature. Rio de Janeiro welcomes you!

The 2013 Pangborn Local Organising Committee would like to inform you that the political protest marches that are taking place all over Brazil, including Rio de Janeiro, will not interfere with our event. They are pacific and democratic manifestations and, in our opinion, we are asking for very fair demands. When some agitation occurs, it is strictly localised, and it is a moment that the media explores the situation a lot. Moreover, they are less frequent and with less people. Besides, marches locations and times are always announced in advance, so it is very unlike to get to one by chance. We will keep every delegate informed if any manifestation occurs during the 10th Pangborn, and she/he will be able to avoid the area. Our expectation is that the manifestations will decrease with time because the main objective was to draw the attention of our government executives to some claims that have been partially met.
