Abstracts at Nutrition 2022 Live Online

Thank you for submitting your abstracts for presentation at NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE!

NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE, ASN’s flagship meeting, will feature original research in the form of abstracts for a poster or oral presentation. Abstracts are a vital part of the meeting, which showcases the latest and best science that advances our understanding of nutrition and its application.   Over 1,300 abstracts were presented at NUTRITION 2021 LIVE ONLINE!

The sessions were informative and I liked the variety in presentation – oral, poster, on-demand video and small discussion groups…

Abstract Presentations

At NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE, abstract presentations offer attendees the ideal opportunity to present their own research and learn more about their peers’ science.

Abstracts will be presented in two ways:

Oral Presentations:

Virtual oral presentations will feature outstanding research representing the abstract topical areas. Oral sessions will be programmed to include abstracts organized around a common theme. Virtual oral presentations will include the abstract text and the opportunity for presenting authors to discuss their work with attendees through questions and answers. Presenting authors will deliver oral presentations using Power Point slides and audio recorded to accompany each slide.

Poster Presentations:

Virtual poster presentations throughout the meeting. Poster presentations offer attendees the ideal opportunity to present their own research. Virtual poster presentations will include the abstract text and the opportunity for presenting authors to discuss their work with attendees through online questions and answers. ePosters (PDF) can be uploaded and audio recorded to enhance each poster presentation.

Presenting authors can opt to have their abstract considered for oral presentation, however, selection is not guaranteed. Accepted abstracts not selected for oral presentation will be programmed as virtual poster presentations.

Information and data included in abstracts accepted for NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE are embargoed until the beginning of the meeting (Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at 12:00 PM ET). Presenting authors will be notified if the NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE communications staff decides to release an abstract earlier to support additional media promotion.

An embargo means that information and data from any abstract selected for poster or oral presentation may not be announced, publicized or distributed before the embargo date and time. Members of the media, bloggers, investigators and public information officers as well as organizations issuing press releases are required to abide by the embargo policy.

Promotion of general topics, speakers or presentation times is allowed and encouraged as long as specific findings and data to be presented are not included in the announcement. Use the hashtag #NutritionLiveOnline to join the online conversation.

If you have questions about the embargo policy, please contact the communications team at media@nutrition.org.

Abstracts accepted for presentation at NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE will be published online in the ASN journal Current Developments in Nutrition. While accepted abstracts will be published in Current Developments in Nutrition, accepted abstracts will be indexed in PubMed Central but PubMed is not expected to index the abstract.

If the accepted abstract is also submitted as a manuscript for publication, authors are responsible for coordinating a publication date that abides by NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE’s embargo policy. If publication occurs online or in print before the specific embargo date and time, the abstract must be withdrawn. Please notify ASN via e-mail at education@nutrition.org.

June 10 Deadline to submit presentation content on abstract presenter portal website
June 14-16 Abstract presentations and complete abstract text will be available on the NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE meeting platform. Presenting authors can reply to questions submitted by attendees via the abstract presenter portal website.

Guidelines for Oral Presentations

Oral presentations will be available as On Demand presentations on the meeting platform beginning on Tuesday, June 14. Oral presentations will be included in oral sessions organized around a common theme. A maximum of 7 abstracts will be included in each oral session.

Oral presentations will include Power Point slides and accompanying audio. The maximum audio length is 12 minutes.

From June 14-16, meeting attendees will be able to submit questions about your abstract through an online Question and Answer system. Presenting authors can then reply to submitted questions through ASN’s abstract presenter portal website at their convenience. More details about the Question and Answer system will be provided in late May.

Timing:

Please allocate 12 minutes for your presentation. During your presentation, you should review the background/aim of your study, methods, results and conclusions, as well as any other information of interest (e.g., future research direction).

 

Slides:
The slides listed below should be included in your presentation slides.

Template slides for NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE are available for presenting authors’ use. All speakers are encouraged to use the NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE template slides for their presentation.

Click here to download the NUTRITION 2022 LIVE ONLINE template slides.

  1. Title Slide: Please include your abstract presentation number on your title slide.
  2. Disclosure/Non-Disclosure Slide: After your title slide, all speakers must include a disclosure slide to list study funding sources and relevant personal financial relationships with commercial entities. If you have no funding sources or relationships to disclose, your slide should read “no conflicts to disclose.” The intent of this disclosure is not to prevent a presenter from being involved in the activity, but rather to provide participants with information on which they can make their own judgements.
  3. Content Slides: Up to 10 content slides is optimal. You may choose to use more than 10 slides, but please be sure to complete your presentation within the allocated 12 minutes.
  • Make slides as simple as possible.
  • Aim for no more than 7 lines per slide.
  • List main points and expand on them verbally.
  • Presentations are recommended to use a 16:9 aspect ratio for slides; however, screens can accommodate a 4:3 format, as well.
  • Use standard fonts, such as Arial or Helvetica.

A font size of 32 is ideal; a font size of 28 is easy to see; a font size below 20 is difficult to see on smaller screen sizes.

Guidelines for Poster Presentations

Poster presentations will be available as On Demand presentations on the meeting platform beginning on Tuesday, June 14.

Poster presentations will include an ePoster (PDF) and accompanying audio. The maximum audio length is 8 minutes.

From June 14-16, meeting attendees will be able to submit questions about your abstract through an online Question and Answer system. Presenting authors can then reply to submitted questions through ASN’s abstract presenter portal website at their convenience. More details about the Question and Answer system will be provided in late May.

ePoster (PDF) Requirements

  • The ePoster must be a PDF file at highest resolution possible.
  • The aspect ratio (ratio of width to height) should ideally be set to 16:9.
  • The ePoster is limited to one page only. That means one single page for your PDF file.
  • Fonts should be sans-serif (e.g., Arial, Calibri, etc.)
  • Minimum font size should not be smaller than 6pt.

 ePoster (PDF) Guidelines

The following guidelines will help improve the effectiveness of your ePoster:

  • The message should be clear and understandable without oral explanation.
  • Headline Strip: ePosters should include a headline strip that runs the full width of the poster. Include the title, presenting author, co-authors, and affiliations. The email address of the presenting author should also be included. Please include your abstract presentation number as part of your headline strip.
  • Initial Sketch: Plan your ePoster early. Focus your attention on a few key points that follows the main headings in your abstract typically Objectives, Methods, Results, and Conclusions.
  • Rough Layout: Enlarge your best initial sketch, keeping the dimensions in proportion to the final poster. Ideally, the rough layout should be full size. A blackboard is a convenient place to work. Print the title and headlines. Draw rough graphs and tables.
  • Final Layout: The artwork is now complete. The text and tables are typed. Now ask, is the message clear? Do the important points stand out? Is there a balance between words and illustrations? Is there spatial balance? Is the flow from Objectives, Methods, Results and Conclusions easy to follow?
  • Balance: The figures and tables should cover slightly more than 50% of the poster area. If you have only a few illustrations, make them large. Do not omit the text, but keep it brief. The poster should be understandable without oral explanation.
  • Topography: Avoid abbreviations, acronyms, and jargon. Use a consistent font throughout.
  • Eye Movement: The movement of the eye over the poster should be natural, down the columns or along the rows. Size attracts attention. Arrows, pointing hands, numbers, and letters can help clarify the sequence.
  • Simplicity: Resist the temptation to overload the poster.

The following guidelines will help improve the effectiveness of your audio presentation:

  • Give a brief summary of the work discussed in the abstract.
  • Highlight major findings and other noteworthy or interesting details.
  • Rehearse ahead of time. Think about delivery – what you will say and how you will say it.
  • Talk slow and steady. Limit your talk to the essentials only. Make sure you don’t speak fast, trying to fit everything in.
