31st European Congress on Obesity
European Association for the Study of Obesity


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am delighted to announce that the next ECO2024, 31st European Congress on Obesity, will be held in Venice, Italy, between the 12th and 15th of May 2024 .

As always, we are working hard to put together an innovative and interactive program, which covers many facets of Obesity. The program is designed to be engaging, and to promote interaction and discussion around the hottest topics in our field. Innovative digital solutions will be put in place in order to facilitate fruition of the scientific contents and networking.

We will develop a congress structure that will allow delegates to interact as much as possible with presenters, so we will have plenary and topic sessions, teaching workshops, and moderated research communication sessions. Programme topics will be organised into four main areas of ‘Basic Science’; ‘Behavioural and Public Health’; ‘Childhood and Adolescent Obesity’; and ‘Management and Intervention’.

We have invited scientific leaders from around the world to bring together their collective expertise, and we also encourage you to submit your own work for presentation during the meeting.

For those of you who have experienced an ECO before, you know that you will have an exceptional few days with us, and will enjoy the collegiality associated with ECO events. For those of you who have not attended one of our meetings before, please consider joining us in Italy for what promises to be a most enjoyable and highly educational experience!

On behalf of my co-chairs of the congress, Maurizio de Luca and Roberto Vettor, and the Executive and Organising Committees, we look forward to meeting you in Venice in May 2024!

Luca Busetto
