QT Canberra, our venue for this year's ASM
1 London Circuit, Canberra ACT 2601
On behalf of the Nutrition Society of Australia, the 2018 Organising Committee would like to invite you to partner with us for the 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM).
The ASM will be held from Tuesday 27th November to Friday 30th November 2018 at QT Canberra, a boutique hotel close to Parliament House and Canberra Airport. This is the first time the conference has been held in the National Capital since 2001 and will bring together more than 270 delegates from diverse nutrition, public health, policy, animal and science backgrounds. The theme, NUTRITION SCIENCE: The nexus between health policy and practice, highlights the diversity of Canberra, the Society and the opportunities and challenges currently being faced in nutrition.
The goal of the Nutrition Society of Australia is to bring to the fore and communicate the scientific value and relevance of nutrition science and related disciplines in Australia. To achieve this, NSA has formal linkages with international and national organisations, and has active groups in every state and the ACT. There are more than 900 members, including the most eminent human and animal nutritionists in the country. About one third of our members hold doctorates and many others are studying for their PhD. Our members are employed in a diverse range of roles, including academia, research, private industry, policy makers, health care and consultancy.
The 2018 meeting will include invited presentations from renowned international and national speakers, a scientific program based on peer reviewed abstracts, a student masterclass and meet the experts sessions. Over the coming months we will share information about speakers, topics and activities.
The Organising Committee welcomes you and looks forward to meeting you at NSA 2018.
