28th annual European Congress on Obesity

EASO is pleased to announce that the 28th annual European Congress on Obesity, #ECO2021, will be held online from 10-13 May 2021. We are very grateful to our Spanish colleagues who have been instrumental in developing the interactive 2021 programme, originally due to take place in the bespoke convention centre in Malaga. Planning for the virtual congress, which will offer excellent scientific and clinical learning opportunities is well underway.

ECO2021 is more than a scientific congress. It is a learning platform for disseminating the best obesity research and practice in Europe, and a platform for discussion, collaboration and sharing. We have developed a programme structure that will enable delegates to interact as much as possible with presenters, so we will have plenary discussion sessions, teaching workshops, case study discussions and moderated e-poster sessions. Programme topics will be organised into four main areas;

Day 1: Basic Science
Day 2: Childhood and Adolescent Obesity
Day 3: Behavioural and Public Health
Day 4: Management and Intervention
We will also host a meet and greet terrace, where you can learn from and discuss topics with members of the patient community in a discussion lounge with the European Coalition for People Living with Obesity. In the New Investigators lounge, you will be able to meet early career researchers from around the world, and chat with senior leaders in your field of interest.

#ECO2021 will be online, but we will make it as interactive and rewarding as ever!

More information will be available soon on the ECO2021 website https://eco2021.com
