2007 ISBNPA Annual Meeting

19 - 22 Jun Oslo, Norway

The seventh ISBNPA annual meeting was held in Oslo, Norway, with over 600 participants.
From Johannes Brug blog:
International Society of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (ISBNPA, http://www.isbnpa.org/) was held in Oslo, Norway. ISBNPA is a research society, so evidently we did some evaluation research to evaluate what the participants thought about the conference program, venue, social events, et cetera. The Executive Committee (EC) of ISBNPA (see the picture of the EC) and the organising committee of the next annual meeting (which will be in Banff, Canada, also see a picture of three members of the local organising committee, chaired by professor Wendy Rogers, the lady in the middle). Information on the Banff ISBNPA 2008 conference can be found at http://www.silvanesti-enterprises.com/isbnpa/. Banff is a fantastic town: in the middle of the Canadian Rockies and easily accessible from Calgary International Airport. The conference will be at a very nice venue (see http://www.rimrockresort.com).

As I reported here before, the conference in Oslo was well-attended, we had a record high number of over 500 participants. The evaluation indicates that the conference was also generally well-appreciated. 75% of participants found the conference very good to excellent, and only 2.4% found ISBNPA 2007 'poor'. Especially the keynote presentations and symposiums were well appreciated. Most negative remarks were about the food offered during the conference: too few vegetarian options! Good food taking diet-preferences into account is of course of utmost importance at a conference on behavioral nutrition and physical activity, and we will certainly take this into account next year in Banff.
