Abstract Submission

It is no longer possible to submit abstracts for the conference.

Poster Guidelines 

The recommended size of posters is 841 × 1189 mm (width x height) corresponding to standard size A0.

Submission Guidelines 


Abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Advisory Board. Acceptance or rejection of an abstract is based on the average grade awarded by the reviewers and at the discretion of the Scientific Abstract Selection Committee.

The deadline for abstract submission is January 15, 2022 for an oral presentation and February 15, 2022 for a poster presentation.

The submitting authors will be notified in February 2022 via the email address (submitting author) provided during submission, whether their abstract has been accepted for an oral presentation. They will be informed at the same time about the format of their presentation. Later, they will receive an email indicating the date and time of their presentation.   


Conference registration and attendance

Submission of an abstract does not constitute registration for the conference. Submission of an abstract implies the commitment that if the abstract is accepted, the presenting author will attend the meeting and implies the expectation that financial resources to attend are available. If the original presenting author is unable to present, one of the co-authors should take over this responsibility. 



Abstracts can be submitted under the following themes:

  • Water State - Understanding its Role in Food: applications and developments focused on probing and understanding water as a major and decisive constituent of many foods, including relaxometry, diffusion and imaging measurements applied in a broad sense
  • Food Physics and Food Design: physical properties of food, food ingredients, food structure design, and their measurement by NMR (gels, emulsions, dispersed systems, glass phase, food structure, etc.)
  • Magnetic Resonance in Whole Meal and Appetite: developments and applications of magnetic resonance to monitor and understand food perception, eating behavior and appetite regulation
  • Taking NMR to the Sample: specific developments and approaches to monitor food composition and processing (unit operations, on-line, etc.). Specific NMR set-up, small NMR devices, mobile magnets to be operated in hitherto unusual environments, such as in a permanent installation (e.g. in an industrial processing plant) as a sensor
  • Foodomics and Food Chemistry: fundamental aspects and applications of metabolomics (nutritional metabolomics, healthy components, etc.) and food chemistry (microbiological, sensory, nutritional, physiological, authenticity, and origin aspects of food) including related multivariate data analyses 


Abstract Submission (use template)

Please submit a one-page abstract by informing if it will be a poster presentation or an oral presentation. Please follow the instructions carefully and choose an appropriate theme. 

The submission should be all text detailing the objective of the work, methodological detail (particularly if deviation from standards and norms), main results of the study, and implications, meanings, and conclusions that can be drawn from the data of the work you want to present. If your contribution does not fit this structure, please adapt an appropriate structured style. There is no minimum word count but sufficient detail must be presented to allow review. If you are struggling with a data requirement to support your abstract, please submit it as it will still be considered for acceptance.

Submission of an abstract does not constitute registration for the congress. Submission of an abstract implies the commitment that the presenting author will attend the meeting and the expectation that financial resources to attend are available.
