Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to extend this invitation to you to participate in the international conference Chemical Reactions in Foods VII, to be held in Prague, 14–16 November, 2012.

This event continues the successful series of meetings held in Prague in 1992–2009. In line with the series, the theme of our conference is new knowledge on chemical reactions during the processing and storage of foods. We hope the conference will be an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the importance of such knowledge in our papers, discussions and personal communications. The conference programme will be tailored to provide a lot of opportunities for you to network as well as explore the latest results of the food chemistry community.

Prague has a long tradition to gather philosophers, (al)chemists, astronomers, and other knowledgeable people from around the Old World. There are a lot of things going on in the city all the time, and you may become part of it. We are looking forward to your contributions on the subject we have chosen; we would like to encourage you to register as a speaker or poster presenter as well as to join us just for interesting discussion. We believe that you will greatly benefit from the scientific programme, exchange information and ideas with old friends/new acquaintances, and enjoy your stay in Prague.

As long as you are willing to join us, please mark the Chemical Reactions in Foods VII in your calendar. We look forward to seeing you in Prague in November 2012,

Jana Hajšlová & Karel Cejpek

on behalf of the organizers.
