Join the Canadian Section of the AOCS (CAOCS) in Toronto, Canada for their 23rd meeting!
Fats and Oils Functionality in Processed Foods: From the Fundamental to the Applied
CAOCS 2009 will showcase innovations in fats and oils research from Canada and around the world.
Keynote addresses by internationally-renowned speakers, a poster session with dedicated viewing time and a student competition will take place. The conference will provide an excellent opportunity for AOCS and CAOCS members to network with existing and new colleagues from university, government and industry, and allow students to interact with fellow students from across Canada and establish contacts with potential employers. Social events tentatively include a pre-conference Niagara Region winery tour and conference banquet.
A key function of this meeting is to provide a forum where graduate students have the opportunity to present their research. The organizing committee requests that research supervisors consider having their graduate students present a paper or poster. Awards will be presented to the best student oral and poster presentations. Travel bursaries will be available to qualified graduate students who would like to present.
