The International Committee on Predictive Modelling in Food (ICPMF) was founded on 12 September 2011 in Dublin during the ICPMF-7 conference. Since 2014, ICPMF is a subcommittee of The International Committee on Food Microbiology and Hygiene (ICFMH), and through this link, is now under the umbrella of the International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS).
What is ICPMF?
Predictive Modelling for Food
To foster the development and use of mathematical modelling in food science
Food Safety and Quality
To Improve Food Safety and Quality and Food Process Optimization through transferring the Know-How on Predictive Model to the different levels along the Food Chains
Predictive Modeller Community
To create a strong predictive modeller community able to advance in Predictive Mathematical Tools for Food by increasing the presence in media, science, academia, etc
To develop educational programmes to train scientists, academia and food professionals in Predictive Modelling Tools in Foods
12th International Conference on Predictive Modelling in Food
The ICPMF conference will be held in Sapporo (Japan) June 13-16, 2023. The ICPMF conference will be an must-attend event for gathering international researchers in the field of food modelling. Several workshops will be also run, dealing with emergence topics in the area, and an excellent programme has been set, including recent scientific achievements in the field.

International course: Reaction kinetics in food science 12th edition
The use of kinetics is necessary for many aspects of food research. Enzymatic, chemical, physical and microbial reactions in foods occur simultaneously during processing and storage, and usually it is a cascade of reactions. The food scientist needs to optimize the quality of food, and this can only be done in a quantitative way with the proper use of kinetics.
