Written by Dean Spears on October 15th, 2012

We’re excited to announce that rice will be hosting a conference in Delhi in the summer of 2013, along with our partners, the World Bank Water and Sanitation Programme, SHARE at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and NCAER. The conference is designed around the important question and theme:

Is ‘malnutrition’ about food?:
Height and stunting in India and early life disease

Although we have an impressive list of invited international experts lined up to present, we know that there are good ideas out there that we won’t know about. That’s why we have held space open for an open call for papers. We’re especially excited about including early career researchers and researchers based in India.
