Outlined, in the following paragraphs, is a brief summary of the 4 main steps all authors and participants should follow in order to complete the NUTRICON Congress Submission & Participation Process. Detailed information on each step can be found by clicking on the quick links below, or by accessing each step via the ‘Call for Papers’ tab in the Main Menu, where all submissions can be made (Abstract, Full Paper & Cover Letter, Oral & Poster Presentation).


1. CONGRESS REGISTRATION – Participants who attend NUTRICON must register for the congress (which can be done by accessing the ‘REGISTER NOW’ button located in the Main Menu). After successful registration, participants will be instructed to proceed with the submission process.

  • Participants who participate as ‘Listeners Only’ should only register for the congress, and will receive an Invoice for participation in the following period.
  • Before starting the Abstract Submission process, authors should view the Congress Topics and select a topic for their paper.
  • It is important to submit a valid e-mail address in order for the Publisher to establish personal contact with the corresponding author/participant. This will ensure further communication and guidance through completing the NUTRICON submission & participation process.


2. ABSTRACT SUBMISSION – After successfully registering for the congress, the author will receive instructions on writing and delivering their abstract to the publisher within a deadline of around 5 days. Upon delivering their abstract, the corresponding author will receive an Abstract Summary Review from the Editorial Team in the following period. The review will detail initial abstract acceptance, potential corrections to be made, and the Full Paper and Cover Letter Submission Process that is to follow. After receiving that information, the author will then usually need to conduct the requested corrections and send the corrected abstract back to the publisher. After receiving a positive Abstract Summary Review of a completed Abstract Submission, the author will then be instructed to continue with their Full Paper & Cover Letter Submission Process.

  • Upon receiving a positive Abstract Summary Review, authors will also receive a separate e-mail containing an Invoice for payment of their accepted Abstract and pending Full Paper & Cover Letter. Upon successful payment, authors will have to send a confirmation of payment to the publisher at the following e-mail address:
  • Please note that the Full Paper & Cover Letter Submission Review Process cannot be started without a confirmed payment.


3. FULL PAPER & COVER LETTER SUBMISSION – After receiving the first e-mail detailing the initial abstract acceptance, the corresponding author can already start preparing their Full Paper and Cover Letter in parallel with their abstract. Upon completion, the author must submit both the Full Paper and Cover Letter together to the Publisher. All authors have a timeframe of 1 month (30 days) to submit their Full Paper and Cover Letter, starting from the day they receive e-mail confirmation that their abstract submission has been accepted. Following a successful submission, the author will receive a Full Paper Review. The review will usually detail corrections to be made by the author. Upon completing the requested corrections, the author should then re-send the Full Paper to the publisher and, should all corrections be completed, will receive an e-mail confirmation of a fully completed NUTRICON paper submission process.

  • Every Full Paper submission must also be accompanied by a Cover Letter by the corresponding author, indicating they have not submitted a similar manuscript for publication elsewhere. 
  • Full Papers submitted without a cover letter will NOT be accepted.


4. ORAL & POSTER PRESENTATION SUBMISSION – Upon final approval of an accepted Abstract and Full Paper & Cover Letter Submission, authors should proceed to create and submit their presentation for their Congress participation.

  • The presentation should be submitted to the Publisher at the latest by the 15th of May, and not later.
