New for 2009, IAFP's European Symposium has expanded to a three-day conference, featuring pre-meeting workshops and concurrent sessions. The symposium entitled "Advancements in Food Safety" is shaping the future of food safety by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas with colleagues from across Europe, North America and many other parts of the world working in industry, government and academia.
This year's program has been specifically designed to facilitate interaction between other food safety professionals as well as the presenters; and offers many opportunities to meet and exchange information on food safety, including workshops, exhibits and poster sessions
