Call for Late Breaking Abstracts

You are invited to submit late-breaking abstracts for virtual poster presentation at the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) Annual Conference. A small number of abstracts may also be selected for a session presentation* (~15 minutes) during a conference session.

Please note that Late-Breaking Abstracts will not be published in APNM, nor will they be eligible for CNS Abstract nor Trainee Awards.

Please read all the information below before submission. 


Authors of accepted abstracts (including late breaking abstracts) will be invited to participate in the CNS Virtual Poster Expo, and will be asked to upload a .pdf of their Poster along with a 50-word summary. Accepted abstract authors will also be asked to sign up for Disqus, a program that enables the opportunity for dialogue between poster authors and visitors. Disqus can be accessed easily and is free. The CNS Virtual Poster Expo was used with great success in 2020 - including 1900+ visitors to the expo during the poster viewing event.

Authors of accepted abstracts (including late breaking abstracts) must register to attend the CNS Virtual Conference in order to participate in the Virtual Poster Expo


* Session Presentations - If you are interested in being considered for a presentation during a conference session, please indicate “yes” to the question: Would you be willing to give an oral presentation at the CNS Annual Conference? YES / NO.  The CNS Annual Conference Program Committee will make the final decisions regarding abstracts to be included as session presentations in the conference program. Presenting authors will be notified regarding presentation format and will have the right to accept or decline at that time.


Please note that abstracts that do not adhere to the required abstract format (as indicated below) may be subject to return to author and require resubmission (an additional fee). NOTE: Late-breaking abstracts will not be published in APNM.
