Late-breaking abstract submission is now open!

Obesity Update 2024 offers a call for late-breaking abstract submissions for abstracts that highlight novel data. 

Submit your late-breaking abstract.

Late-breaking abstract deadline: Sunday 3 December 2023 (23:59 BST)

Please note, that if your abstract does not include novel data, it will not be considered in this category.

Abstracts are accepted on the understanding that the work has not been published or presented elsewhere.

Accepted abstracts will be presented at the event as a physical poster or as an oral presentation, and will be published online in Obesity Abstracts and presented at Obesity Update 2024.

Authors will be informed of the outcome of their late breaking abstract submission on 22 December 2023.

Abstract Guidelines

  • Abstracts must be no longer than 350 words.
  • Do not include your title or author list in the body of the abstract as these will be added separately.
  • Abstracts and titles must be submitted in English.
  • Tables can be included in the abstract text but will be included in the word count.
