ISBNPA 2021 Annual Meeting in Omaha POSTPONED
to May 20 - 23, 2024

Friday, August 28, 2020

Dear colleagues,

We have surveyed the ISBNPA community about the 2021 Annual Meeting. The vast majority mentioned expressed concerns about having a face-to-face meeting. The main reasons are related to travel bans, lack of conference funding, or difficulties in conducting research in the current pandemic.  

As a result, the ISBNPA Executive Committee, together with Omaha 2021 Organizing Committee, has made the difficult decision to delay the 2021 Annual Meeting in Omaha to May 20 – 23, 2024. 

We will undoubtedly have an ISBNPA meeting in 2021. The ISBNPA XChange was an informative experience that showed us what can be done (and what should be avoided). The Executive Committee is currently working hard to find a solution. We are considering a hybrid meeting in 2021, with some face-to-face sessions in one place mixed with online sessions, but this is just a first idea, and we want you to be part of the decision-making process. 

We will make sure you are consulted soon.

As a result of this decision, we will withhold the opening of the call for symposia, which was scheduled for late August. 

We will send you more information soon.

Stay connected through the ISBNPA App (members only), Website, Facebook and Twitter for updates.

Stay healthy, safe and well and please do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Please direct any questions to [email protected].

We promise to bring you a stimulating scientific program, which will include an outstanding line-up of keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations, and pre-conference workshops.

In addition, we will provide excellent opportunities for participating in physical activity, and networking social events that will also help you discover what Omaha has to offer.

ISBNPA welcomes submissions focusing on behavioural aspects of:

  • Physical Activity
  • Nutrition
  • Sedentary Behavioural
  • Sleep
  • Or any combination of the above.
