Welcome from the Chairs

Dear researchers,

We are pleased to announce the Third Electronic Conference sponsored by Nutrients. The focus of this conference will be on Precision Nutrition and Nutrigenomics. Precision Nutrition, a novel individualized approach, considers the genetic and epigenetic information as well as age, gender, lifestyle, gut microbiota, and health status conditions to design the best dietary approaches for an individual in order to achieve optimal health and ageing, disease prevention and improved exercise performance. This conference will provide updated information and novel findings on the role of epigenetics, genetic polymorphisms and the microbiota in Precision Nutrition as well as the use of “omics” as necessary tools to discover unsuspected interactions and interpret the information.

Participants will have the opportunity to examine, explore and actively participate in current issues and advances in these areas. We hope to facilitate discussions and exchanges within the community. This event will solely be an online proceeding that allows participation from all over the world with no concerns about travel and related expenditures. This type of conference is particularly appropriate and useful because of the discussion on new findings on Precision Nutrition and Nutrigenomics . An electronic conference provides a platform for rapid and direct exchanges about the latest research findings and novel ideas. The participation in, as well as the “attendance” of, this online conference is free of charge.

Bio
Alex Mira is the head of the Oral Microbiome Lab at the FISABIO Institute in Valencia, Spain. After a PhD at Oxford University and postdoctoral stays in the USA and Sweden, returned to Spain to focus on the study of the human microbiome, especially in the oral cavity. His team performed the first metagenome and metatranscriptome of the human dental plaque, through which he discovered the new species Streptococcus dentisani, currently being developed as an oral probiotic. After working on the microbial etiology of oral diseases, he is currently focused on studying the systemic effect of the oral microbiome, ranging from colorectal cancer to cardiovascular or antidiabetic effects.

Digestive System Research Unit, University Hospital Vall d’Hebron, 08035 Barcelona, Spain

DETAILS
Talk
Diet is central to the mutualistic relationship between microbiome and host. The host provides habitat and food, and the microbiome participates in the digestion and metabolism of food, recovering energy and nutrients. Food and gut microbes are the main determinants of the human metabolome. Same foods can give rise to different circulating metabolites if the microbiome is different. Diet influences the composition and functions of the microbiome. Plant-based foods improve the diversity and functional quality of the microbiome. The tolerance of plant foods depends on the ability of the microbiome to process them. Plant food exclusion diets can worsen the functional capacity of the microbiome.

Please do not insert any graphics (schemes, figures, etc.) into a movable frame, as this can superimpose the text and make the layout very difficult.
  • LaTeX: Manuscripts prepared in LaTeX must be collated into one ZIP folder (include all source files and images so that the Conference Secretariat can recompile the submitted PDF). When preparing manuscripts in LaTeX, please use the provided LaTeX template file.

The IECN 2023 Microsoft Word template file and LaTeX template file:

Manuscript Preparation

Paper Format: Papers should be in A4 paper format, with a printing area of 17.5 cm × 26.2 cm. The margins should be 1.75 cm on each side of the paper (top, bottom, left, and right sides).

  • Formatting/Style: Papers should be prepared following the style of Nutrients. The full titles and the cited papers must be given. Reference numbers should be placed in square brackets and placed before the punctuation; for example, [1,2], [3] or [1–3]. All the references should be listed separately in full detail as the last section at the end of the manuscript.
  • Author List and Affiliation Format: Authors' full first and last names must be given. Abbreviated middle names can be added. For papers written by various contributors, a corresponding author must be designated. The PubMed/MEDLINE format is used for affiliations: complete street address information, including city, zip code, state/province and country, and email address should be added. All authors who contributed significantly to the manuscript (including writing a section) should be listed on the first page of the manuscript, below the title of the article. Other parties who provided only minor contributions should be listed under Acknowledgments only. A minor contribution might be a discussion with the author, reading through the draft of the manuscript, or performing English corrections.
  • Figures, Schemes and Tables: Authors are encouraged to prepare figures and schemes in color. Full-color graphics will be published free of charge. Figures and schemes must be numbered (Figure 1, Scheme I, Figure 2, Scheme II, etc.) and an explanatory title must be added. Tables should be numbered, titled and inserted into the main text. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Please supply legends for all figures, schemes and tables. The legends should be prepared as a separate paragraph of the main text and placed in the main text before a table, a figure or a scheme.
Potential Conflicts of Interest

It is the authors' responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research. If there is no conflict, please state here "The authors declare no conflict of interest." This should be conveyed in a separate "Conflict of Interest" statement preceding the "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections at the end of the manuscript. Financial support for the study must be fully disclosed under the "Acknowledgments" section.

Copyright

MDPI, the publisher of the Sciforum.net platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting a paper to this conference, you retain the copyright of your paper, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this paper online on the Sciforum.net platform. This means you can easily submit your paper to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher (if required by that publisher).

Video Presentations

Besides their active participation in the forum, authors are also encouraged to submit video presentations. If you are interested in submitting a video presentation, authors are also encouraged to submit video presentations. This is a unique way of presenting your paper and discussing it with peers worldwide. The video should be no longer than 3-5 minutes and prepared with one of the following formats: .mp4 / .webm / .ogg (max size: 250Mb). It should be submitted with the full manuscript before 15th September 2023. This is a unique way of presenting your paper and discussing it with peers worldwide. Make a difference and join us for this project!


Tips: Video should be no longer than 3-5 minutes and prepared with one of the following formats: .mp4 / .webm / .ogg (max size: 250Mb).
