Local/national conference 5 November 2014 - 6 November 2014
Heildelberg, Germany

This conference's topic perfectly resonates with the 2015 Ecsite Annual Conference 'Food for curious minds' theme. The focus of this meeting will be on the impact food has on our body and mind, both from the long-term evolutionary perspective and from the perspective of everyday life. The conference programme will highlight the biological and cultural processes through which food both defines us and transforms us. Metaphorically, as well as literally, in what sense are we what we eat? Register by 9 October (fee: 40 euros).
