ICDAM 2025 Conference Theme: 25 years on: Diet and activity methods for all

The theme for ICDAM 2025 embraces the evolution in diet and physical activity methods since the 2000 conference, while thinking about the work that lies ahead to ensure that high-quality methods are available and accessible for all.

The 2000 conference theme was Promoting the appropriate use of dietary assessment tools for all. Since then, ICDAM expanded to focus on methods for assessing both diet and physical activity, and subsequent conferences addressed the need for methods that are appropriate to various populations and contexts.

With the theme for ICDAM 2025, 25 years on: Diet and activity methods for all, we invite participants to consider how advances in methods can contribute toward the vision of the International Society for Diet and Activity Methods, the wide availability and use of robust methods for the assessment of diet and physical activity across contexts, settings, and populations. Accordingly, we welcome submissions that explicitly address equity and inclusiveness, including with respect to building capacity and inclusiveness in the field.
