The first ISOPOW Symposium was organised in Glasgow, Scotland in 1974 with focus on Water Relations in Foods. Since then ISOPOW meetings have promoted the exchange of knowledge of the role of water in foods, pharmaceuticals and biological systems. ISOPOW Symposia have a strong participation of industry and have been an important platform for a dialogue between academic and industrial scientists and technologists.

Conference Venue & Social events
The symposium will take place at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne. The venue is overlooking the Alps and Lake Geneva. The welcome cocktail will occur in the permanent exhibition of the museum and the gala dinner on a cruise. Post-symposium excursions between few hours and 2 days will be available to discover famous Swiss attractions, such as the Lavaux vineyards protected by UNESCO, the cheese region of Gruyère or the iconic mountain of Zermatt.
