Call for abstracts for the 4th International Conference on Global Food Security with a deadline September 20. The conference takes place in Montpellier at Le Corum on June 16-19. The following news is redirected by SCIENCE from the Global Food Security Conference website.

Oral and poster abstracts are now invited on the conference topics and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system.

Topics for sessions and abstracts
The conference emphasizes integrated analyses and perspectives and therefore particularly welcomes contributions on the following cross-cutting topics:

  1. Food security and the Sustainable Development Goals: synergies, tensions and trade-offs

  2. Circularity of food systems at local, regional or global levels

  3. Food security and policy, governance, institutions and trade

  4. Transitions to post-carbon food systems in a post-carbon economy

  5. How to assess future food security: on foresight, forecasting, projecting, predicting and exploring the future

  6. Influencing food consumption and demand considering the food environment
  7. Development, impact and ethics of novel and data-driven technologies in food systems

Such contributions will address all dimensions of food security, preferably in an integrated way. In addition we also accept more specialized contributions that focus on one (or preferably more) of the four dimensions of food security, i.e.:

8. Availability: production, distribution and exchange of food

9. Access: affordability, allocation and preference of food

10. Utilisation: nutritional value, social value and safety of food

11. Stability and dynamics of food security aspects
