Call For Papers 2022 

The theme of the Dietitians Association of Australia 38th National Conference is Be Bold. Submissions are encouraged to explore the 2022 theme “Be Bold” and incorporates the key academic themes of transform, reinvent, and diversify.

In 2020 we introduced our new format for the three day program. There will be 2 main conference days offering symposium, seminar, oral and poster presentations. There will also be a ‘Sunday Skills Session’ (pre-conference day) with 2 streams – one for emerging dietitians as ‘Grow Your Career’ and one an advanced education option as ‘Evolve Your Practice’. You can propose a workshop or pitch your project presentation on this day.

In keeping with our sustainability theme, poster presentations will be 100% electronic this year, with the top few also delivered as rapid fire presentations.

Overview of submission categories:
Submissions are invited for the main conference concurrent sessions (Monday, Tuesday) and the pre-conference program (Sunday Skills Session).  Full details are available by clicking  Call for Submissions.
