The 5th European Symposium on Enzymes in Grain Processing (esEGP5) was hosted by the Institute of Food Research (IFR) of Norwich, UK, at Norwich City Football Club, March 31ľApril 2, 2008. This series of symposiums, launched in 1996 by the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), consolidated its position in the field through successive symposiums held by VTT (Helsinki, 1999), Katholieke Universiteit (KU), Belgium, Leuven (Leuven, 2002), and the National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA-Nantes) (Nantes, 2005). These meetings provide a forum for researchers and technologists across academia and industry to share in recent progress, facilitate the exchange of ideas, and shape the future directions for the use of enzymes in the processing of grains. The symposium was attended by 110 participants from across Europe, the United States, Canada, Japan, and Chile. We had seven technical sessions covering 36 talks (including 10 plenary lectures) and three poster sessions covering 40 poster presentations.
