The second international conference on Global Food Security was held at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, on October 11–14, 2015. It was co-hosted by Cornell University, Columbia University, and Elsevier Publishing, along with the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation as an Exclusive Platinum Partner. Well over 600 participants from more than 60 countries were in attendance, representing a diverse range of research domains within the context of global food security.

Following up from the 2013 conference in the Netherlands, the aim of this meeting instalment was to further broaden the participation of multi-disciplinary researchers, journalists and policy-makers involved in all aspects of food security. Organ- izers placed special emphasis on ensuring that the information presented at the conference was shared far beyond the attend- ees. This was the idea behind the Junior Researcher Task Force (JRTF) – a group of 22 competitively selected researchers as- signed the task of disseminating conference information on social media. Special training in communication methods was provided to the JRTF members the day prior to the conference. In addition, eleven 90-minute “workshop cafés” were organized, in which participants had the opportunity to engage in critical discussion of some of the trending topics related to food secu- rity, such as: “Is there a role for genetic engineering in ensuring a food-secure world by 2050?”
