The 44th ICAF conference was held in Tossa de Mar, Catalonia, Spain, in May 2017. The topic was Food, Gastronomy and Tourism: Social and Cultural Perspectives. Papers were presented from scholars from several disciplines, as well as from practitioners working in the food and tourism sectors. Several common themes emerged from the  conference, with a lot of cross-fertilisation of ideas between participants.
