Submission Guidelines

Pre-conference workshops will be hosted at the Hilton Toronto on Sunday, April 27th, and will be programmed from 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Workshops can be programmed for a half day or full day.

Workshops provide an opportunity for participants to learn about new techniques or technologies or gain in-depth knowledge on a particular topic. Pre-conference workshops are designed for a relatively small number of participants, and should involve interactive features, such as demonstrations, discussions, or hands-on activities such as data analysis.

Workshops that integrate facilitators and/or speakers from multiple countries and that integrate aspects related to assessing both diet and activity are encouraged.
