9th Annual International Weight Stigma Conference

The Annual International Weight Stigma Conference is an inter-disciplinary event that brings together scholars and practitioners from a range of backgrounds (e.g., public health, government and public policy, psychology, medicine, sociology, anthropology, allied health professions, education, sports and exercise science, social sciences, media studies, business, law, activism, and the lay public) to consider research, policy, rhetoric, and practice around the issue of weight stigma.

We are now accepting abstracts for oral presentations and posters, as well as session proposals including brief symposia, round tables, debates, and workshops. We are also interested in non-traditional submissions (e.g., media, performance, art). The two-day interdisciplinary programme will cover the entire weight stigma research spectrum – from basic, to applied, to clinical, to policy – and feature an outstanding roster of international speakers and local experts.

Details of this year’s theme and abstract submission will follow shortly.

Contributions outside of the theme are also welcome.


Weight Stigma Conference Bursary Fund

The Weight Stigma Conference is a not-for-profit event. The conference is funded by registration fees and a small number of sponsors whose support has made this event possible. In order to make the conference more accessible, we try to offer a small number of full and partial bursaries to people who might otherwise not be able to attend, but there is never enough funding to give a bursary to everyone who needs one. Since 2016, we have been crowdsourcing the conference Bursary Fund, and your generosity allowed us to provide 43 bursaries so far.

There are several ways that you can donate to the Bursary Fund. The simplest is to use the button below to pay via PayPal. This is our preferred option as there are fewer fees and charges involved at our end, and more of your donations can go toward the bursaries.

We have also set up a GoFundMe page for the 2023 Bursary Fund.
Alternatively, you can contact us to discuss other arrangements or to explore other sponsorship options. All funds raised via these methods are ring-fenced for bursaries and will not be used for anything else. Thank you again for your generosity in helping us make this possible.
