Prof Nick Holden invited to give plenary presentation at 1st International Conference on Food Ontology, Operability, Data and Semantics (IC-Foods)
The inaugral International Conference on Food Ontology, Operability, Data and Semantics (IC-Foods) was organised and hosted by by University of California, Davis from 7-9 November 2016. The conference brought together the brightest minds in ontological, computational, and mathematical modeling from around the world together with domain experts whose work resides along the Environment-Agriculture-Food-Diet-Health knowledge spectrum. Prof Nick Holden was invited to give a presentation on Life Cycle Assessment in a plenary session on approaches to modelling food systems. He outlined what the LCA is and what it can be used for and then discussed issues relating to data needs and ambiguity that can influence the success of an LCA study.
