Abstract Submission Process

Submitting an abstract is a 3-step process. We strongly recommend that you complete your submission at one time.

Step 1: Register on the system

  • We are using a dedicated website for abstract submission and you must first register on the system.

Step 2: Submit your abstract

  • Submitting an abstract requires that you complete a questionnaire for each abstract. Some questions are mandatory (marked with an asterisk) and you will not be able to complete your submission until these questions have been answered. You will be required to provide the names and affiliations of all authors, confirmation that all authors have approved the submission and the conference theme to which you are submitting your abstract. Please also indicate whether you wish your abstract to be considered for oral presentation.

  • The conference themes are: public health nutrition; clinical nutrition; nutritional physiology and molecular nutrition; other.

  • The maximum length for an abstract is 2000 characters which is close to 300 words. The abstract should include the following content: introduction, aim/objective of the study, materials and methods, results and discussion. We recommend using a structure abstract, that is, use bolded sub-headings according to the above division of content. Please ensure that research findings are described to a level sufficient for reviewers to make an informed decision on scientific quality. Authors are also responsible for ensuring that the abstract is free of typographical errors, mistakes in grammar, style and spelling. Abstracts that do not meet these criteria may be rejected.

  • As part of the submission process, you must also indicate if there are any commercial interests and associations that may pose a conflict of interest.

  • It is strongly recommended that you complete your submission once started. However, if you decide to start your submission for completion at a later point, you must ensure to “Submit” your incomplete abstract. It will then be available for you to finish at a later stage. Failure to “Submit” your incomplete abstract will result in it being lost and you will have to start again.

Step 3: Confirmation e-mail

  • You will receive an e-mail confirming that your submission has been received.

The abstract will be evaluated independently by two reviewers. The same author is not allowed to submit/present more than two abstracts in the conference. We will accept the following kind of topics:

  • original research reports (main results must be presented already in the abstract)

  • systematic reviews and meta-analyses

  • design and method descriptions of particularly novel and important studies just about to start
