21st European Young Cereal Scientists and Technologists Workshop

June 3-5, 2024 | Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Abstracts

Cereals&Europe, in collaboration with the Centre for Linking landscape, Environment, Agriculture and Food (LEAF) at School of Agriculture University of Lisbon (ISA) (Instituto Superior de Agronomía), is calling for abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations at the 21st EYCSTW.

Make plans now to join the vibrant cereal and grain science community between June 3-5, 2024, to present your work, network with peers and learn from industry experts. This year, the workshop will be hosted at ISA, a national and international renowned faculty of excellence in Europe. The European Young Cereal Scientists and Technologists Workshop (EYCSTW) is designed to include subject categories such as, but not limited to cereal processing, product quality, analytical techniques, sensory, nutrition and health and novel specialist ingredients. The EYCSTW is a platform for young research scientists to exchange with their peers on the latest research in cereal and grains sciences. We encourage young research scientists (PhD students and Post Docs) to submit an abstract for their planned contribution.

Over the years, the success of the event has been built around a balance between educational sessions and social/networking opportunities.

​Oral presentations will be organized in a series of subjects related to cereals and grains, including keynote lectures from senior speakers as well as factory visits and social events.

Abstracts are due by Wednesday, April 30, 2024, and should be sent to cerealsandeurope@scisoc.org withf.boukid2021@gmail.com on Cc.
