British Feeding and Drinking Group logo

The 2024 annual meeting of The British Feeding and Drinking Group will be held in person, hosted jointly by Anglia Ruskin University and Jesus College, University of Cambridge.

The British Feeding and Drinking Group first met in London in 1975 and is now an international and multi-disciplinary gathering of scientists interested in all aspects of appetite, eating and drinking. The annual conference welcomes a wide range of academic, clinical and industry-based scientists, including those working in psychology, physiology, medicine, nutrition, food science and related disciplines. The meeting provides an ideal platform for PhD students and early career researchers to showcase their work.

The meeting programme has been organised by members of the BFDG from across the world. We look forward to welcoming you for an exciting programme of short talks, keynote addresses and research posters.

The meeting will begin at 9am on Thursday 4 April and finish at 4pm on Friday 5 April (dates are confirmed, the start and finish times are yet to be confirmed by the programme committee).

There will be a conference meal on Thursday the 4 of April at Jesus College and a social programme (venue, price and activities to be confirmed).

Abstract submission will be online, with the option to select a short oral presentation or an electronic poster. Student bursaries will be available for in-person presentations and there will be an option to have the abstract published in Appetite.
