Active Living Research Seeks Conference Abstracts

Active Living Research (ALR), a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has announced a call for presentation and workshop abstracts for its 11th Annual Conference on March 9-12, 2014, in San Diego, CA. The theme of the 2014 conference, "Niche to Norm,” recognizes the importance of advancing active living from an emerging research field with limited results and impact to well-accepted findings that regularly guide decision-making across sectors to create more active communities.

Call for Abstracts – Research & Practice Tracks

The aim of the ALR conference is to be the premier venue for both cutting-edge research and for making findings accessible to and useable by non-scientists. Thus, the 2014 conference agenda will include both research and practice/policy presentations.

Abstracts related to all populations and active living environments and policies in all settings are welcome. Submissions related to the conference theme and research and practice/policies that inform strategies for increasing physical activity among racially and ethnically diverse populations of youth and those living in lower-income communities who are at greatest risk for obesity are particularly encouraged.

Call for Workshops

ALR seeks high quality workshops for researchers (e.g. methods, statistics) and practitioners (e.g., use of measures or tools, dissemination, translation or scalability of findings to inform policy and practice). These sessions must be interactive and have clear learning objectives. Workshops can be proposed for either 1.5 or 3-hour formats.

The submission deadline for presentation abstracts and workshops is September 4, 2013, 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Notifications will be sent out in late October.
