Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce our first international conference Nutrients 2019 - Nutritional Advances in the Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease. The conference is organized by the MDPI open-access journal Nutrients (Impact Factor 4.196) and will be held as a three-day event in Barcelona, Spain, from September 25‒27, 2019.

Chronic diseases are increasing throughout the developed and developing world. A significant contributor to the burgeoning rates of chronic disease is diet, with some dietary components contributing to disease development, and others being protective. We invite researchers, food industry representatives, policy makers, and others with an interest in the impacts of diet on chronic disease to join us for what will be an exciting event.

The conference will host a number of internationally renowned speakers, and invites submissions for oral presentations and posters. All presenters at the conference will be encouraged to submit a full manuscript of their presentation for consideration for publication in a Special Issue of Nutrients.

We hope to see you in the vibrant and exciting city of Barcelona in September 2019.

Joint Chairs of the Conference Organising Committee

Professor Jon Buckley (Editor-in-Chief, Nutrients)
Professor Peter Howe (Founding and Emeritus Editor, Nutrients)
Professor Lluis Serra-Majem (Nutrients Editorial Board Member and President of the Spanish Academy of Nutrition and Food Sciences)
