SNEB Annual Conference
Call for Abstracts

The abstract submission system has now closed. If you have been asked to resubmit an abstract, please follow the instructions you received by email. For information contact



The Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior (SNEB) invites you to submit abstracts for presentation at the 2015 Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, PA July 25 – 28, 2015. SNEB is 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.  Abstracts related to this year’s conference theme: 
Creativity & Innovation in Nutrition Education
are also encouraged.  This year SNEB is also calling for abstracts in a new category: Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).


For SNEB, SoTL is the scholarly inquiry associated with teaching students in a college/university course or curriculum.  Examples of SoTL may include:

•    Best practices associated with teaching undergraduate or graduate nutrition courses
•    Innovative and high impact teaching strategies (service-learning, flipped classrooms, online learning
environments, study abroad, etc.)
•    Individual course or curriculum development
•    Assessment of student learning outcomes

Those wishing to submit SoTL abstracts should follow the same guidelines provided for the Research and Practice abstract categories. However, when submitting your SoTL abstract, please select SoTL for the abstract category in the appropriate drop-down menu. If you have any questions about if your SoTL work fits with SNEB, please contact Suzie Goodell (, the Higher Education Division chair.


Submission Deadlines

The first deadline for abstracts has closed on January 25.


Late Breaking Abstracts:
The purpose of late breaking abstracts is to accommodate abstracts with results not available before the regular submission deadline.  Abstracts that are submitted without results as late breaking abstracts will not be accepted. Abstracts submitted between January 25 at 12:01 AM EST and March 1, 2015 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.


Authors will receive feedback based on a standardized evaluation form if their submission is rejected.  Rejected abstracts submitted prior to the January 25 deadline may revise and resubmit the abstract on or before March 1, 2015, without paying any additional submission fees. All accepted abstracts will be published in a supplemental issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior for the Annual Conference.
