iFARM Workshop, October 2022 in Maryland

Florian Keusch and Alexander Wenz are co-organizers of the iFARM Workshop that will take place at the University of Maryland , October 20–21, 2022 (new date, postponed from April 2022).

There is increasing interest in food data among researchers and policymakers around the globe. This includes data about food acquisitions and purchases, nutrition, food security, food assistance, local food environments, food loss and waste, and health. To address the challenges with collecting high-quality food data, innovative techniques for data collection and processing are needed. 

The goal of this workshop is to provide a venue for researchers from different disciplines and countries to discuss advancements in methods for collecting and processing food acquisition data. The workshop will provide opportunities for attendees to present their research results, exchange ideas, and foster new collaborations. This two-day workshop is jointly organized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Economic Research Service (ERS) and the Social Data Science Center (SoDa) at the University of Maryland.
