Description

INVITATION AND CALL FOR PROPOSALS

This event continues a long series of successful conferences organised to provide an
international forum for all concerned with fundamental, engineering and applied aspects
of oxidation techniques involving ozone and related oxidants.

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

The issue of sustainable Agri-Food industry looks at interactions between the food
processing, the environment and consumers’ demand of fresher and safer products.
Each stage of production from crop or livestock to transportation and storage,
transformation, has environmental impacts on natural resources while hygiene and safety
are of fundamental importance.
This event will provide an overview of the current state of knowledge and latest advances
regarding the use of Ozone and Related Oxidants for a sustainable Agri-Food Industry,
their mechanisms of action, the related engineering aspects and the transfer of sound
science into industrial approaches. The Programme will focus on:• Food Safety & Quality • Regulatory Status • Wash water • Water Use & Reuse • Air treatment • Soil treatment • Current Research • In-field developments • Case studies• System design • Product developments • Synergy effects.

In this context, this conference will offer a unique opportunity to consider ozone & related oxidants technologies for microbial inactivation, optimization of water use, effluent treatment,water reuse and recycling, reduction of emissions to air, cleaning, food preservation, agricultural use by interfacing with researchers, practitioners, designers, end-users, experts and equipment suppliers.

PROGRAMME
The conference will feature scientific and technical presentations, poster presentations
with introduction platform, discussions, networking opportunities, exhibits and technical tour. The social program will include a conference dinner in the famous Oceanographic
Museum, a post-conference technical tour and tourist excursions open to accompanying
persons.

CALL FOR PAPERS - PUBLICATIONS
Researchers, scientists, practitioners are invited to propose oral or poster presentations
related to the theme topics. Authors should submit an extended abstract in English of two
pages (with tables and figures) by May 31 2007 preferably by e-mail to the IOA-EA3G Secretariat. The Programme Committee will notify authors about the acceptance of their papers for oral or poster presentation before June 30 2007. Full texts written according to guidelines should be available before September 15 2007.

To encourage young researchers, the Programme Committee will select and award a prize to the best paper presented by a doctorate student.

All accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings that will be handed out
to participants at registration. After the conference, the editors of the Ozone: Science &
Engineering Journal will make the final selection of best full papers and poster summaries for publication of papers in this IOA journal.

EXHIBITION AND SPONSORING OPTIONS
In parallel to the scientific and technical sessions, companies are invited to present
products, processes and services in connection with the conference theme. This event is
a unique opportunity for all organizations concerned with any aspect covered by the
Conference theme to enhance their presence and visibility within this community.
Exhibiting and sponsoring are important and effective media. The exclusiveness of the
conference theme allows exhibitors and sponsors a unique possibility to present them to a
unique and targeted audience. We would like to invite you to take part in this event. For
detailed information on the exhibition organization and/or on the sponsoring options,
