The industrial production and handling of food poses interesting and challenging mathematical questions of non-standard nature. This workshop will discuss a wide range of mathematical aspects in food industry. These range from modeling, simulation and optimization of growth and microbial activity over food processing with aromatic facets up to logistics of distribution.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together people from food industries and from academia in order to find mathematical challenges of common interests and to foster synergies and collaborations.

We kindly invite your contribution and participation. Note that the number of participants is limited.
