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.
This year’s theme is Unintended Harms, Insidious Impact: The Need for Multi-Level Change. We encourage submissions on this theme that offer novel and fresh insights and/or address existing gaps and open questions, in the widest sense. Contributions outside of the theme are also welcome.
We invite contributions across a wide range of disciplines and methodological and theoretical approaches. International voices discussing the situation in countries other than the US are particularly welcome. Equally so are intersectional approaches and perspectives from other marginalized groups. Students are especially encouraged to submit proposals.

Submission deadlines: Session proposals and oral presentations 10th March, 2023.
Posters will be reviewed on a rolling basis with no submission deadline.
