About the conference

Kilter is a conference on improving your body via better nutrition, fitness and habits.

In this first ever edition, the conference will feature talks on data-driven approaches to health and fitness; diets and nutrition; science of food; and food hacking. We are inviting proposals for talks, workshops and demos from researchers and practitioners on these topics.

Kilter aims to appeal to the widest possible range of individuals who are passionate about and curious to learn how the body works.

Topics

We are looking for talks covering the following topics:

  1. Medical tests relating to nutrition & well-being
  2. Micro and macro nutrients
  3. Gut microbiome and the intricacies of digestion
  4. Body fat, body temperature and other in-depth aspects of the body
  5. What do you monitor when you monitor your health?
  6. Experiments with food and diet, and their impact on weight, disease control and overall well-being
  7. Habits and disciplines for improving your body
  8. Exercise and fitness, and its impact on physical and mental well-being
  9. Exercise testing and monitoring
  10. Cravings and couplings: what we can eat instead when we crave for a specific item, and what two food items do or don’t go together because they catalyze/inhibit nutrient absorption

We are inviting proposals for:

Selection process

Proposals will be filtered and shortlisted by an Editorial Panel. Please make sure to add links to videos / slide decks when submitting proposals. This will help us understand your speaking experience and delivery style. Blurbs or blog posts covering the relevance of a particular problem statement and how it is tackled will help the Editorial Panel better judge your proposals.

We expect you to submit an outline of your proposed talk – either in the form of a mind map or a text document or draft slides or a blog post within one week of submitting your proposal.

Selection Process Flowchart

You can check back on this page for the status of your proposal. We will notify you if we either move your proposal to the next round or if we reject it. Selected speakers must participate in one or two rounds of rehearsals before the conference. This is mandatory and helps you to prepare well for the conference.

A speaker is NOT confirmed a slot unless we explicitly mention so in an email or over any other medium of communication.

There is only one speaker per session. Entry to the conference is free for selected speakers.

Travel grants

As our budget is limited, we prefer speakers from locations closer home, but will do our best to cover for anyone exceptional. HasGeek provides these limited grants where applicable:

Grants will be made available to speakers delivering full sessions (40 minutes or longer).

*Speaker travel grants will be given in the order of preference to students, women, persons of non-binary genders, and speakers from Asia and Africa.
