SUBMISSION DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 27, 2018

IFT is planning to host a full day, topic-based “deep dive” of scientific inquiry on the gut microbiome and its relationship to nutrition and health as part of the scientific program at IFT19. This call is for proposals to review fundamental and translational research as well to discuss challenges to bridge inter-disciplinary discovery to commercial innovation: ingredients, nutrition science and benefit substantiation, emerging applications, enabling technologies, standards and analytical methods, regulatory, partnerships & ecosystems necessary for product development and commercialization.

Both individual and panel presentations will be considered.  Each session will be scheduled for 60 minutes, including Q&A.  All proposals will undergo a peer review process and selection will be made based on scientific merit, relevance to the food industry, and practical application within the science of food and nutrition.  Because the program is limited to a single day, proposal selection will be limited based on time constraints and topic coverage.

The program will be a full day of sessions followed by an interactive hackathon wherein participants will engage and collaborate to identify creative and practical applications or commercial solutions to inspire innovative product development.
