Future Food Symposium 2024 calls for academic contributed submissions in the form of a one-page abstract (350 words maximum).

The abstract submission deadline is April 12th

All submissions should be emailed directly to [email protected]

All accepted abstracts will be invited to give a 15 minute presentation at the event in a track of related talks.

This is a truly multi-disciplinary event featuring world-leading experts in business, consumer psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, computer science, health, and nutrition. The central thread across all disciplines is food. Submissions from any angle are welcome, however, we strongly encourage participants to align their submission with one of the following 13 tracks:

– Nutrition Security
– Diet-related Disease
– Social Eating and Canteen Cultures
– Food Supply Chains and operations
– Ethics, Rights and Responsibility in the Global Food System
– Food (hi)stories, narratives and discourses
– Community Food initiatives and dignity
– Consumer Food Waste
– Food, big data, machine learning and AI
– Marketing for a greater Good – a focus on food
– Food Insecurity – models & measurement
– Social relations and food insecurity
– Impact of Food on Environment

We welcome a wide variety of abstract submissions including:
– Empirical
– Methodological
– Conceptual Frameworks
– Position Papers
– Reviews
– Case Studies
– Demonstrations
– Engagement Activities
– Design Frameworks.



This is an entirely free event focused on showcasing the latest thinking across disciplines and fostering new links between business, charity, policymaking and academia.

Food will be provided for free across both days of the symposium, though because of this constraint we will have limited availability of places and therefore encourage early registration to avoid disappointment.
