Welcome to ISBNPA XChange 2021

Dear colleagues,

We have surveyed the ISBNPA community about the 2021 Annual Meeting. The vast majority mentioned expressed concerns about having a face-to-face meeting. The main reasons are related to travel bans, lack of conference funding, or difficulties in conducting research in the current pandemic. 

However, following the success of ISBNPA XChange in June 2020, we will virtually meet again in June 2021. Symposia and abstract submission opened in early November 2020 and we encourage you to submit your research to be presented at ISBNPA XChange 2021.

This year’s ISBNPA XChange theme is “Thinking independently together – Let’s dance around the world!” 

Verna Myers once said, “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance”.

Let’s think independently while dancing together around the world, linking our ideas together with the ideas of others and incorporating diversity and its inclusion in our everyday lives. Each and every idea makes our collective dance more beautiful and diverse!

The live sessions will be held on:

June 8, 2021 – in time zone convenient for attendees from Australia, Asia and New Zealand

June 9, 2021  – in time zone convenient for attendees from Europe and Africa

June 10, 2021 – in time zone convenient for attendees from North and South Americas

The Organizing Committee will work on inviting great keynote speakers and preparing another stimulating program with a mixture of live webinars, Q&A sessions and access to the recordings.

Stay connected through the ISBNPA App (members only), Website, Facebook and Twitter for updates and please direct any questions to [email protected].


We promise to bring you a stimulating scientific program, which will include an outstanding line-up of keynote speakers and  oral  presentations.

  • Physical Activity
  • Nutrition

  • Sleep
