The International Society of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (ISBNPA) will host its 15th meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, bringing ISBNPA to the African continent for the first time. The conference will be hosted by the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at the University of Cape Town, in partnership with the Sports Science Institute of South Africa.

We can’t wait to welcome you in South Africa’s Mother City! 

We promise to bring you a stimulating scientific programme, which will include the usual line-up of keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations, and pre-conference workshops. In addition to this, we will provide excellent opportunities for physical activity, and have arranged social events that will give you a taste of Africa and the cultural diversity of our country.
