Welcome to Foods: Bioactives, Processing, Quality and Nutrition

Call for Papers

for The First MDPI–Lincoln University International Conference on Foods
Research concerned with bioactives, processing, quality and nutritive value of foods is progressing fast. Simultaneously, activities within industry, government and academia are becoming more globalized. Successful research requires interaction with multiple partners around the world. We are facing an obvious need for new types of communication within our scientific community. electronic conferences provide a platform for fast exchange of the latest research findings, as well as a possibility for global meetings with no limitations related to traveling.
The first MDPI–Lincoln University International Conference on Foods will cover timely research topics concerned with modern food industry. The conference will include ten topical sessions focusing on:

1. Isolation and Characterization of Plant based Functional Food Ingredients (Section A).
2. Isolation and Characterization of Animal based Functional Food Ingredients (Section B).
3. Food Quality for the Consumer (Section C).
4. Chemical and Nutritional Content of Foods (Section D).
5. Food and Human Physiology (Section E).
6. Non-Thermal Food Processing and effects on Food Quality and Nutrition(Section F).
7. Thermal Food Processing and effects on Food Quality and Nutrition (Section G).
8. Food Safety and Security (Section H).
9. Mathematical Approaches to Food Innovation (Section I).
10. Allergens and Intolerances (Section J)
This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference aims to examine, explore and critically engage with issues related to recent insights and advances in these topics.
The conference will be completely free of charge―both to attend and for authors to publish―and is sponsored by MDPI and the new scientific journal Foods ( Selected papers will be published in the journal Foods.
The first MDPI–Lincoln University International Conference on Foods will be held at, a new platform developed by MDPI to organize electronic conferences for scholars.
Please submit your abstract with max 2500 character (in English) before 23rd December 2012. Abstracts should be submitted online using the "Start New Submission" function. All submissions will be reviewed by our scientific committee. For accepted abstracts, a full draft paper should be submitted by 8 March 2013.

Instructions for Authors

1. Scholars interested in participating with the conference can submit their abstract (about 200-300 words covering the areas of Food Science for the proceedings issue) online on this website before 23rd December 2012.

2. The conference committee will pre-evaluate, based on the submitted abstract, whether a contribution from the authors of the abstract will be welcome for the first edition of MDPI–Lincoln University International Conference on Foods. All authors will be notified by 14th January 2013 about the acceptance of their abstract.

3. Authors of accepted abstracts are asked to submit his full communication paper, optionally along with a PowerPoint presentation of their paper, by 8th March 2013.

4. The conference committee will then organize a round of peer-review of the submitted communication papers, and authors are eventually asked to revise their paper based on peer-reviewer's comments.

5. Finally, accepted communication papers will appear on the website immediately after their acceptance.

6. Presented communications papers can be discussed, commented and rated during the time of the conference, 10-12th April 2013.
Proceedings Paper
Communications for the proceedings issue must have the following organization:

First page:
TitleFull author names
Affiliations and authors' e-mail addresses
Methods / ExamsResults and Discussion

Communications should be prepared in MS Word or any other word processor and converted to the PDF format before submission. The publication format will be PDF. The Communication paper should count at least 3 pages (incl. figures, tables and references). There is no page limit on the length, although authors are asked to keep their papers as concise as possible.
Presentation Slides
Authors are encouraged to prepare a couple of slides in PowerPoint or similar software, to be displayed online along with the Communication. Slides, if available, will be displayed directly in the website using's proprietary slides viewer. Slides can be prepared in exactly the same way as for any traditional conference where research results can be presented. Slides should be converted to the PDF format before submission so that our process can easily and automatically convert them for online displaying.
Submission should be done online by registering with, and using the "New Submission" function once logged into system.
MDPI AG, the publisher of the platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting a Communication paper to this conference, you retain the copyright of your paper, but you grant MDPI AG the non-exclusive right to publish this paper online on the platform. This means you can easily submit your paper to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher (if required by that publisher).
