Registration for the Summer Conference 2021 is now open. This page is specifically for in-person attendance.

In light of the current situation surrounding COVID-19 and the extended closures of institutions that have ensued, the abstract submission deadline for the Summer Conference has been extended to 16 April.

This conference is currently planned to go ahead as a hybrid event allowing delegates to choose to attend in-person or online. Government guidance will be monitored closely. The final decision on whether to progress as an in-person conference will be made on 15 April 2021. 

About the Conference 

The Conference will discuss the challenges for nutrition professionals and nutrition research in the changing world. Delegates attending the conference will have opportunities to learn about climate change and the agricultural and dietary behaviour changes required, meeting the nutritional needs of an aging population, addressing the growing issues of food poverty and dietary inequalities, and raising awareness of the importance of preconception nutrition for lifelong health.
