In this issue of Field Exchange we are delighted to feature, for the second year running, a special section that shares key outputs of Action Against Hunger’s Research for Nutrition Conference held in November 2016. Introduced in an editorial note by Myriam Assefa and Stephanie Stern, we summarise eight research articles based on conference presentations. Topics include relapsing severe acute malnutrition (SAM), photo diagnosis of SAM and innovative approaches to MUAC assessment. The write-up includes capture of panel discussions on overcoming research data management challenges in crisis contexts and how to improve the engagement of communities in research. The attendance and engagement of this conference reﬂects the appetite for discourse between researchers and programmers – 130 people attended the conference, while the call for abstracts generated 57 submissions.
