The conference will be held at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, from May 10-12, 2023. It is aimed at bringing together scholars working at the broader intersection of food, the environment, and health with cutting-edge methods and novel datasets to further our understanding of future food system challenges around the world.

Call for papers

The changing demand for food—influenced by and influencing the environment and ecosystem—with its nutritional and health implications, is increasingly becoming the most important challenge facing the global food systems. There is a greater need for more robust evidence on these complex interlinkages.

TCI invites extended abstracts (2,000 words or less) describing proposed research papers on the interrelated issues of food security, nutrition, the environment, and health. Submitted abstracts should clearly delineate the research question, data, and methods. We are particularly interested in quantitative research that uses novel datasets, and rigorous quantitative methods, from across developed and developing countries.

Please submit extended abstracts to with the subject “Conference Abstract.” Applicants whose abstracts are accepted will be notified in January 2023 and invited to present their full papers at the conference.

UPDATE: The submission period is now closed. We are no longer accepting submissions.
