An excerpt from the Editorial (attached to this news as PDF):

This special issue on the use of pulsed electric fields for food processing contains manuscripts on recent developments in the field of PEF prepared by participants of the first edition of the Training School on Applications of Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF) for Food Processing that was held at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in January 20–23 of 2004. The School was organized in the framework of the COST TD1104 Action — European network for development of electroporation-based technologies and treatments ( and joined for four days, 13 lectures and 33 students coming from 15 countries of four different continents belonging to both academia and industry.
