XII International Conference on the Applications of Magnetic Resonance in Food Science: Defining Food by Magnetic Resonance

Organisation by                                                    In collaboration with






It is our pleasure to announce the next International Conference on Magnetic Resonance in Food, which is to be held in Cesena, Italy, from May 20 to 23, 2014. Within this edition of the conference we include six dedicated sessions on:


· multiscale definition of food,

· quantitative NMR (qNMR),

· foodomics,

· on-line and non-invasive NMR (dedicated to Brian P. Hills),

· quality and safety,

· new developments.


For each session, keynote speakers have already confirmed their attendance.

The first international conference was held in 1992 at the University of Surrey in Guilford, maintaining the long tradition of the Food MR Conference, the latest technical innovations and their current and potential applications to the understanding of food, their processing and stability, and their nutritional value, will be presented. Deployment of MR relaxometry, diffusometry and imaging, in both time-and frequency domain will be the focus of the session dedicated to the definition of food matter at the different scales, from the nanoscopic molecular level to the microscopic compartmental scale. New methods for decoupling and hyphenation, providing “quantitative experimental conditions”, will be presented during the q NMR session.


After the considerable interest shown during the last conference, FoodOmics will form an important theme in the conference. On-line and non-invasive MR makes this spectroscopic technique unique as investigation tool when working on living systems or manufacturing processes, and the dedicated session will provide an overview on the state-of-art of this field of application. Finally new or unusual applications will find room in the section dedicated to the new developments.


We are proud to offer a great environment for networking and sharing views and experiences with Magnetic Resonance experts from academia and industry who are committed to the utilisation of MR tools to improve our understanding of food systems.
