Eurosense is a bi-annual symposium held at different locations gathering over 600 experts in sensory and consumer research from academia and industry. 2016 Eurosense was held in Dijon, France and was organised by INRA (French National Institute for Agronomical Research), SFAS (French Society of Sensory Analysis) and E3S (European Sensory Science Society). Eurosense is a multi-disciplinary conference, with a focus on sensory and consumer research covering aspects ranging from sensory fundamentals, food choice and consumer behaviour, over big data analysis from sensory evaluations to culinary arts and science. Newest research findings and latest advances in sensory and consumer research methodology were showcased in 12 workshops, 56 oral and over 300 poster presentations.
