» About This Newsletter
The International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) conference is one of the most important events of the year for us. You can read about our key highlights from this year's conference which took place in Cincinnati last month. You can also download our presentation slides and posters from this year's conference on our website here.
In upcoming events:
Let me know if you are planning to be at any of these events, we would be delighted to arrange a meeting there.
In other news, last year we delivered a new database to EFSA called the ESFA Compiled Database. This work has now been published and you can read all about it below. This project promises to be an important step in the research and development of more accurate methods to estimate short and long-term food consumption habits for the European population.
Please feel free to share any questions you may have on Predictive Intake Modelling with us. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
ISES Conference 2014 - From Big Data to Aggregate Exposure
The 24th annual meeting of the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) Conference was held at the historic Hilton Netherland Plaza in downtown Cincinnati where, according to a picture on the wall, Doris Day and various others have performed throughout the years. The art deco interior of the 3rd and 4th floor provided the scene for the latest research in exposure science.
There were a number of interesting approaches to aggregate exposure calculation with organisations conducting large surveys to investigate product consumption and exposure through product co-use. Monte Carlo simulation methods were presented as a method used to combine various databases, a method employed by Creme Global since 1999.

Scientific Publication on the EFSA Compiled Food Consumption Database
In 2013 Creme Global delivered a new database called the EFSA Compiled Database to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The Compiled Database is the first database containing data about the long-term food consumption at a pan-European level.
EFSA published a scientific report written by Creme Global on the project which describes the mathematical model developed and used for this study. A scientific paper, also written by Creme Global, has been recently published on Food Additives & Contaminants: part A.
Food consumption data are a key element of dietary exposure and risk assessment so it is of fundamental importance to have reliable data, in particular for estimating the long-term exposure to chemicals and hazards that might be contained in foods.
