Do you have a question about the virtual conference? Please have a look at the most important information you should know below
N&G 2020 is going virtual
The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our model of face-to-face meetings – many of us still have travel restrictions and the role of social distancing is crucial for overcoming the current crisis.
To adapt to the current situation, the N&G Organizing Committee has come to the decision to transform the 7th Nutrition and Growth Conference into a fully virtual meeting.
The virtual N&G 2020 conference will offer you a top-notch experience, from educational exchanges on the latest advancements and best practices on nutrition and growth, to fantastic online networking opportunities.
The virtual conference will take place on 27-29 August 2020. Virtual sessions will allow live interaction and will be available on-demand in the weeks following the Conference.
It is our goal that this virtual conference will continue to meet the needs of the Nutrition and Growth community, to ensure continuous education and professional support. Registered participants will still be eligible to receive the number of CME credits attributed to the virtual conference, and authors whose abstracts were accepted will be published in the digital abstract book, with e-posters available for virtual consultation.
Further registration and scheduling details for delegates, speakers, and industry partners will be announced in due course.
We believe the N&G 2020 Conference will be a great success and are looking forward to meeting you online.
