International Food Acquisition Research and Methods (iFARM) Workshop

The USDA Economic Research Service and the University of Maryland, College Park, are pleased to host the "International Food Acquisition Research and Methods" (iFARM) workshop. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from different disciplines 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.

Contributions that focus on collecting food acquisition and purchase data are encouraged. Still, contributions that focus on collecting other types of food data or on improving methods which may not have been used to collect food data but could be applied for that purpose are also welcomed.
