The conference organising team would like to invite you to attend a three day international conference, with associated workshops, which will address known and emergent chemical and microbial contaminants which affect food safety along the farm to fork chain.
The conference will host a number of world renowned experts in the area of food safety presenting the latest findings at primary production level and during processing and distribution. The changing face of outbreaks of foodborne disease and contamination issues and the management of such issues at a global issue will also be considered.
Early Bird Registration Deadline:
27th July 2012
Abstract Submission Deadline:

Internationally recognised experts will present on the latest food safety findings, of a chemical and microbiological nature, at primary production level, and during processing. The changing face of outbreaks of foodborne disease or contamination issues and the management of such events at global level will also be considered.
Day 1: Tuesday October 23rd
Session 1: Food safety in primary production Topics to be included are microbial contaminants in vivo and in the farm environment, chemical residues in animal feed, in vivo and in the environment, antibiotic usage and transmission throughthe food chain.
Session 2: Food safety during processing Topics to be addressed will include detection and tracing of contamination in the food production chain, product traceability, hygienic design, role of decontaminants and novel technologies in food processing, pathogen process models and chemical contaminants introduced during processing.
Evening A gala conference dinner will be held in City Hall, Dublin
Day 2: Wednesday October 24th
Session 3: Distribution risks Topics to be addressed will include packaging, maintaining the cold chain and chemical contaminants from packaging.
Session 4: Safety considerations associated with emerging technologies. Topics to be addressed will include nanotechnology, novel processing technologies, novel food, labelling and regulation.
Session 5: Communicating risk in the face of foodborne outbreaks & management of food safety at a global level Topics to be addressed in this session will include quantitative risk assessment, inter agency communication, emerging risks in the food chain and how they can be dealt with and consumer perception of risk.
Day 3: Thursday October 25th
Satellite workshops Further information on satellite workshops will be available shortly.
