The International Symposium on Olfaction and Taste, or shortly “ISOT”, convenes every four years and unites the chemosensory research communities in Europe (European Chemoreception Research Organization; ECRO), Japan (The Japanese Association for the Study of Taste and Smell; JASTS), and North America (Association for Chemoreception Sciences; AChemS). The first ISOT meeting was held in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1962. The meeting rotates since 1986 every 4 years between sites in Europe, Japan, and the USA. At the ISOT meeting scientist of all the continents discuss the latest chemosensory research. - See more information under the tab Meetings.
