SNEB invites you to submit a proposal to host an SNEB Link and Learn session at the 2013 Annual Conference in Portland, Oregon, August 9-12, 2013.

SNEB is excited to offer a new feature at the 2013 SNEB Annual Conference, SNEB Link and Learn.  These are informal, casual gatherings held with the purpose of meeting people with similar interests who are attending the conference.

By organizing a Link and Learn session you can find someone to share a meal or coffee with, join you on a run or talk about areas of research or interest. The options are endless! – The topic and/or activity is entirely up to you. There is no charge to host or attend a session and no registration.

Prior to the conference we’ll list all of the Link and Learn sessions on the SNEB website.  The link will include your contact information for RSVPs so you’ll know, in advance, who is planning to attend. Onsite, these sessions will be included in the conference program and identified with signage.

Submission Process
Please submit your Link and Learn proposal by May 15 to info@sneb.org. Include:

  1. Your name, title, organization, email address and phone number where you can be reached during the conference.
  2. Title and description of the activity you are proposing (about 35 words)

The Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior (SNEB) invites you to submit abstracts for poster presentations at the 2013 Annual Conference in Portland, Oregon, August 9-12, 2013.

With the official name change in 2011 from SNE to SNEB, we are particularly interested in abstracts about research, and/or programs that relate to behavior change and food choice, regardless of whether or not the desired behavior occurred.  However, abstracts are welcome in any area of nutrition education, especially those that incorporate the conference theme:  Moving from Good to Great!

Abstracts must be no more than 250 words and must follow the specific guidelines based on the type of abstract: Research or Program. These guidelines can be accessed at http://www.sneb.org/events/abstracts.html.

Presentation Formats

Poster presentations allow presenters to discuss their research with interested colleagues over a period of 2 hours in an informal setting.

Submission Process

Use the online submission form (http://www.sneb.org/events/abstracts.html) to submit your abstract by Tuesday, January 22, 2013.  A $25 fee will be charged for each abstract submission.

All abstracts will be blinded and then peer reviewed according to specific criteria. More information about the review criteria is online at http://www.sneb.org/events/
abstracts.html
. Authors will receive feedback based on a standardized evaluation form if their submission is rejected.  All accepted abstracts will be published in a supplemental issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior for the Annual Conference.

Submission Deadlines

Regular Abstracts: These must be submitted by 11:59 PM EST on January 22, 2013.

Authors may pay online via credit card or mail a check for $25, payable to SNEB,  with the full name of the lead author and abstract submission number (as noted in your  e-mail submission confirmation) clearly noted on the check.

Late Breaking Abstracts:

The purpose of late breaking abstracts is to accommodate abstracts with results not available before the regular submission deadline. Research or program abstracts that are submitted without results as late breaking abstracts will not be accepted. Abstracts submitted between January 23 at 12:01 AM EST and March 1, 2013 at 11:59 PM EST will be considered late breaking. Late breaking abstracts must follow the same submission guidelines as for regular abstracts.

Authors may pay online via credit card or mail a check for $50, payable to SNEB,  with the full name of the lead author and abstract submission number (as noted in your  e-mail submission confirmation) clearly noted on the check.
