The International Conference on Designing Food and Designing for Food follows the 1st International Symposium on Food Experience Design held on November 9th, 2010 at London Metropolitan University. The symposium was a representation of the multidisciplinarity, transdisciplinarity and interdisciplinarity of design, food and experiential knowledge. Through six presentations from very different disciplines, the symposium created a panorama of the variety of disciplines that all contribute to Food Design. The Food Design Conference now wants to expand this concept to academics, researchers, professionals and research students from around the world. What are the disciplines influencing Food Design? How are these many disciplines influencing Food Design and how do these influence each other? Is Food Design now a discipline in its own right?
