SNEB conference program, JNEB position paper topic deadlines coming up

The Society has two submission deadlines coming up that you should be aware of.

SNEB's call for topics for position papers to run in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior wraps up Tuesday, Oct. 1. Position papers provide a comprehensive discussion of SNEB’s policy on one or more topics. Containing extensive background information and analysis, the position paper provides a more complete understanding of the issues and the reason behind the position(s) set forth by the organization.

To have a topic considered for next year, send a proposal with the following information:

  • Statement of position (in one or two sentences)
  • Background and rationale for proposed position
  • Objectives (e.g., to provide evidence for effectiveness of school cafeteria-based interventions on increasing fruit and vegetables intake among children and youth.) Typically, multiple objectives are submitted targeting major segments of the proposed topic.
  • Key points (to serve as an outline for the position; accompanying peer-reviewed citations for each point should be included)
  • Reference list
  • Suggested authors
  • Collaborating organizations and type of collaborations, if applicable (e.g., joint development with another society)

to JNEB’s Editor-in-Chief, Karen Chapman-Novakofski, PhD, RDN (editor@jneb.org).

SNEB's 2020 conference program deadline is just a few days later on Friday, Oct. 4. All members are invited to submit proposals for the 2020 Annual Conference in San Diego, California July 19 - 21. Proposals related to the 'What Food Future?' theme can include:

• Concurrent Sessions
• General Sessions
• Pre- and Post-Conference Workshops or Tours
• Non-CEU Activity Sessions (Yoga, Zumba, Meditation, etc.)

All conference sessions must be submitted by a SNEB member and complete, including speaker(s) information, at time of submission. If you're ready, submit your program proposal by clicking here.
