Nutrition Society member-led short conference

To compliment the annual programme of scientific activities, the Society also support a series of shorter, focused, member-led conferences allowing delegates to take an in-depth approach into a subject.

This format allows these events to have a detailed focus into one topic, to be responsive to scientific developments, and offers an opportunity for regional activities and early career researchers to get involved in organising a scientific conference.  The Society will support these as in person, online or hybrid events. 

Members wishing to take part should complete the proforma and attach an indicative programme. The proposal will be reviewed by the Society's Science Committee, and once agreed the conference will receive support from staff at the Society for registration, marketing and publicity. The organisers are expected to provide a Gazette article and/or a paper published in Proceedings of the Nutrition Society (PNS) as an outcome of the conference.

The Society is particularly keen to be flexible, support innovative ideas, explore novel areas, execute regional conferences, develop position statements or discuss standards, where a PNS paper would be an apposite outcome.
