Lucky me that I have the chance to present my work in Latin America! Here there are 3 events where I will participate (a couple of them may be happening , not as simple keynotes, but as multisensory tasting demonstrations). First, CERALE 2018, where it will be inaugurated the new campus of Universidad de los Andes, in Cartagena de Indias (end of May). Second, a presentation at the 4th International Congress of Marketing, organised by UDLA, to be happening by the end of June, in Quito, Ecuador. The third event is Investigaction 2018, happening in Bogotá and Medellin, and organised by ACEI (Colombian Association of Market research companies) during August.
There will be a Multisensory Demo/Keynote happening on March 22nd, evening, at the Polytechnic/ULB. Apparently this event will have a big audience of engineers, and it is organised by the cool guys of the Ohme Project.
For April 22nd, we are preparing a surprise in collaboration with the MAS Antwerp, as part of the Antwerp a la Carte experience.
This year, the Belgian TV show ‘Matière Grise’ (RTBF Francophone) is celebrating their 20th anniversary by creating a voting pool of researchers located in Belgium that make an effort to valorise/vulgarise their research across the general public.
I was happy to know that the chapter that I participated replicating one of the experiments that I published as part of my PhD was chosen for this contest!
Here the link were you can watch a segment of this chapter.

(scroll until Felipe Reinoso Carvalho - Perception Multisensorielle).
Please, help us by voting, and by spreading the word around colleagues, friends and family. If we win, we will use part of the prize to get more beers and chocolates for our experiments ;-)
Peter Pasoli, our partner in The Sound of Chocolate project, gave an interview in the Belgian Radio (RTBF). Enjoy his brainstorming (in French) !
During the 9th of November, we will join the Chocolate Museum in Brussels (Choco-Story) for some demonstrations, as part of the 'Brussels Museum Nocturnes'. Also, the 26th of November, we will join the science day at KU Leuven with some experiments. Finally, the 7th of December we will join the 'Brussels Museum Nocturnes' once more, but now at the mim with some scientific experiments. We will stay at the mim the whole weekend until Sunday 10th of December. Join us!
It has been more than one year since I started to collaborate with Bang & Olufsen (B&O). Together, we design multisensory experiences that focus on the importance of quality of sound in our daily lives. For this, we collaborate often with renowned chefs, such as Wout Bru . In November, we are having a couple of these events in Bruges. If you buy B&O products, you can actually win free tickets for these exclusive and unique events. If you are interested, please contact Tom Van Damme at B&O Belgium for more information. Here a video with an example of what we are up to.
The program 'grey matter' at RTBF TV (Belgian TV Network) broadcasted a chapter focusing on music and emotions. We replicated one of our experiments as part of the chapter's script. You can check it out by clicking here
This week I had a great time presenting my work for professionals working in the Belgian chocolate industry during a seminar organised by Cacaolab. Thanks for the opportunity!
Next week (Wednesday 6/June/2017) I'll present the same topic (in Spanish) at the third international congress of Marketing, organised by UDLA, Ecuador (BTW, Ecuador is the second largest cacao producer/exporter in South America, and particularly recognised as having one of the finest existent cacao varieties).
We also had the confirmation that The Sound of Chocolate will be present during the Chocolate Summit, in Bruges, Belgium. This will happen during the 28 of September, 2017.
I joined Simran Sethi on her Slow melt podcast. We discussed on how sound can influence the way we perceive taste and flavours.
On behalf of KULeuven, I will perform a multisensory tasting demonstration at the Docville Festival, which will be happening during the evening of 27, March, 2017, at the ZED Vesalius Theatre, in Leuven.
