Given the continuing impact of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and resulting restrictions, ASOI, EASO and WOF have decided to transition the live ECO-ICO scheduled to take place in Dublin from 1-4 September 2020 to an interactive and engaging online event. Full details outlining the format will be announced as soon as possible. EASO intends to host the 2023 European Congress on Obesity in Dublin.
Our online programme will have unprecedented global relevance, reach and convenience. Wherever you are in the world, all presentations, discussions and digital content will be available to you throughout the event, and beyond. We will offer live and on-demand scientific sessions, discussion, and interactive e-poster presentations. We will host cutting-edge industry sessions and virtual exhibitions.
All events will be hosted on a new digital platform on the ECO-ICO website, and the congress will be integrated with the ECOICO 2020 app. Abstracts accepted for the live event will be accepted for the online edition, and published in the official abstract supplement in Obesity Reviews. The presentation format of accepted abstracts may be altered to accommodate the new congress format, and we anticipate increased interaction with delegates and dissemination opportunities.
We are working hard to develop the new online programme and interactive delegate elements and we aim to make the virtual ECO-ICO experience as informative and engaging as possible.
More information will become available on the congress website and registration will open soon. We look forward to welcoming you to ECOICO Online 2020
