17 November 2023 – Exposome-NL Conference

The environment we live in has a dominant impact on our health. It explains an estimated seventy percent of the chronic disease burden. Where we live, what we eat, how much we exercise, the air we breathe and whom we associate with; all of these environmental factors play a role. The combination of these factors over the life course is called the exposome.

The Exposome-NL conference is an annual gathering of international researchers on studying environmental exposure, organised in the context of the Exposome-NL project. This year’s conference topic is: Exposome and Preventive Health: Analysing and simulating the exposome in space and time.

Exposome-NL has teamed up with the Netherlands Metabolomics Centre for this year’s conference: together we will organise several break-out sessions and a poster session.

Abstract submission is now open. The selection process will take place and the results announced within three weeks after the abstract submission deadline (25 September 2023).

Submission deadline

We welcome submissions of abstracts describing ongoing or finished work on exposome research. Abstracts should be half to one page of text submitted as a pdf. Abstracts will be peer reviewed and selected for presentation in one of two forms:

  • Break-out session presentations
  • Poster presentations

Break-out sessions

The break-out sessions will cover several topics:

  • Built environment
  • Data science
  • Digital exposome
  • Drivability
  • Early life
  • Ethics
  • Geospatial modelling
  • Microbiome
  • Metabolomics
  • Obesogenic environment
  • Policy
  • Sensoring
  • Social environment
  • 3D exposome

Please find more information about the conference and how to register and submit an abstract on the conference website.
