Upcoming MDPI Conferences (1)
15–31 March 2022 The 2nd International Electronic Conference on Nutrients
We are pleased to announce the Second Electronic Conference in Nutrients. The conference edition will focus on Nutrition Support for Immunity and Countermeasure Effects on Infection, Inflammation, and Oxidative Stress. The immune system is complex, distributed throughout the body, and highly active. Appropriate nutrients are necessary for the varied cells of the immune system to function optimally and respond to injury, inflammation, oxidative stress, and invading viruses and bacteria. This conference will provide current trends and insights into nutritional immunology, and immunonutrition strategies to counter infection, inflammation, and oxidative stress.
Participants will have the opportunity to examine, explore and critically engage with issues and advances in these areas. We hope to facilitate discussions and exchanges within the community.
This event will solely be an online proceeding that allows participation from all over the world with no concerns about travel and related expenditures. This type of conference is particularly appropriate and useful because research is concerned with human nutrition and health. An electronic conference provides a platform for rapid and direct exchanges about the latest research findings and novel ideas. The participation, as well as the “attendance” of this online conference, is free of charge.
We hope the community will share this enthusiasm and help to make this first edition a success—for many to come in the future.

2–3 December 2021 2021 Nutrition Society of New Zealand Annual Scientific Conference—Tūhono - Reconnecting
Wellington, New Zealand
The Nutrition Society of New Zealand conference is the only scientific nutrition-specific conference held in New Zealand annually. The aim of the conference is to provide a national forum where local and international nutrition and health scientists, practitioners, and postgraduate students can present their research to inform and upskill those working in the field, and network to develop new collaborations.
The theme for this year’s conference: “Tūhono - Reconnecting” means “to meet or come into contact again after a long absence” and is appropriate as we had to cancel last year’s conference due to Covid-19. We look forward to finally bring people together.
The 2021 conference will cover a range of contemporary topics specifically relevant to the health of New Zealanders including Te Tiriti o Waitangi, women’s health, the gut-brain axis, functional foods, sustainability and food sovereignty, food systems and access, and healthy food environments for children.
The conference programme will consist of 6 plenary sessions, each led by keynote or plenary speakers and supported by submitted abstracts. There will also be a number of parallel sessions featuring oral presentations of submitted abstracts, and professional development workshops aimed at postgraduate students, early career researchers and NZ Registered Nutritionists working in Private Practice. We are expecting well around 150 attendees.
9–11 December 2021 Hybrid Conference
Bio City, Leipzig, Germany
21–24 June 2022 3rd International Conference on Food Bioactives & Health
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Food Bioactives & Health, that will be held on June 21-24, 2022 in the amazing city of Parma, Italy. This third conference in the series comes after the great success of the previous meetings, held in Norwich in 2016 and in Lisbon in 2018. Both events were very well organized and were a great success. We are, therefore, committed to match these standards and are preparing what we are sure will be a unique event. The topics addressed by FBHC2020 have been broadened to cover a wide range of topics on food bioactives and health, including (poly)phenols, carotenoids, glucosinolates & other organosulfur compounds, fatty acids & sterols, polysaccharides, and peptides & protein. In addition, a session will be devoted to toxic compounds, an often overlooked topic that is important from a holistic perspective in the role of food bioactives and their impact on human health. Particular attention will be paid on transversal topics such as personalised nutrition, gut microbiota, dietary intake, and nutritional policy. The Conference aims to offer plenty of networking opportunities, providing the chance to interact with renowned scientists and to stimulate creative exchange among researchers. Young scientists will have a lot of opportunities to showcase their work and obtain feedback from experienced international scientist. June is a perfect time to visit Parma, a lively and cultural city, located in Northern Italy, that is surrounded by parks, vineyards, lakes and medieval castles. Most importantly, Parma is a “food city”. It has been recognised as UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy and hosts the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) headquarters. The congress year, 2020, will be a great time to visit Parma as it will be the Italian Capital of Culture and full of numerous special attractions. In addition, we are planning a “family friendly conference”, with organized activities for the children of delegates during the sessions, including "learning through playing” games focusing on healthy nutrition and lifestyle. We hope you will participate in what will be a memorable conference in the beautiful city of Parma!
With best wishes,
The Organizing Committee.
