Nutrition 2019 meeting was a very resourceful platform for early career investigators. It provided an opportunity to present my research, network with senior scientists and plan next steps for a career in nutrition science.

Nutrition 2020 Abstract Submission

The American Society for Nutrition (ASN) welcomes the submission of original research in the form of abstracts for presentation at Nutrition 2020.

The Nutrition 2020 abstract submission website will open in October 2019. The deadline for abstract submissions is January 31, 2020.

There will not be a late-breaking round for abstract submissions.

Abstract Categories

Presenting authors must select an abstract category with which the abstract should be associated. Only one abstract category can be selected. Please consider submitting your abstract even if you believe it does not fit precisely into one category. Abstracts will be reviewed and categories may be adjusted to group like abstracts together for presentation. Abstract categories are sponsored by ASN groups which assist with abstract programming.

The complete list of abstract categories will be available in late September 2019.

Abstract Presentations

At Nutrition 2020, abstract presentations offer attendees the ideal opportunity to present their own research and learn more about their peers’ science.

Nutrition scientists from around the world will be presenting their original research in Oral Sessions, Poster Theater Flash Sessions, and Poster Presentations.

Oral Sessions

Nutrition 2020 oral sessions will feature the presentation of multiple abstracts organized around a common theme and highlight outstanding research representing the abstract topical areas.

Poster Theater Flash Sessions

This format will feature flash talks followed by discussion time by a poster board. Each speaker will have up to 4 minutes (and 3 slides!) to highlight major findings and other noteworthy or interesting details. After the flash talks, presenters will stand by their poster for dialogue with Nutrition 2020 attendees.

Poster Presentations

Nutrition 2020 will feature traditional poster sessions throughout the meeting. Poster presentations offer attendees the ideal opportunity to present their own research and learn more about their peers’ science. Poster sessions will include poster presentations within the same topical area.

Award Competitions and Travel Funding Opportunities

ASN awards more than $90,000 in awards and travel grants to students and young investigators annually. Applications for these award competitions and travel funding opportunities must be submitted during abstract submission. More information about these opportunities will be available in late September 2019.
