The 38th Annual Meeting of the British Feeding & Drinking Group (BFDG)
BFDG is an annual international and multi-disciplinary gathering of scientists whose research examines some aspect of eating or drinking. The meeting welcomes a wide range of scientists, including those working in psychology, physiology, nutrition, food science (including smell and taste) dietetics and related disciplines. BFDG has grown over the years, with typically 100-140 attendees sharing their recent work over a friendly two-day meeting. BFDG has traditionally been an ideal place for postgraduate researchers to present their work in particular and we hope to secure funding for bursaries to help attract such speakers. The conference will be hosted by the University of Portsmouth and will take place at the Holiday Inn, Pembroke Road, Portsmouth, PO1 2TA.
We look forward to welcoming you to Portsmouth in April.
