Event Overview
Welcome message:

World Cancer Research Fund International and World Obesity Federation are delighted to be hosting this two-day conference in 2016. This conference is a ‘part-2’ in a series to follow the first OPAC conference in 2013. It will bring together scientific, health and policy professionals working in the area of obesity, physical activity and cancer. 


The latest evidence and future research needs will be shared and discussed on hot topics including:-


• The epidemiology and metabolic mechanisms linking obesity, weight change, and physical activity to cancer risk and survival


• Early life events linked to obesity and cancer susceptibility in later life, including discussion on findings on height and cancer risk 


• Issues and new approaches to assess body composition and metabolic markers of cancer risk and progression


• A novel method for systematically reviewing mechanistic studies, and results from feasibility studies testing this method exploring mechanisms underpinning the links between postmenopausal body fatness and breast cancer


• Best practice for implementing scientific evidence into policy actions for prevention of obesity, cancer and other non-communicable diseases.


This event is targeted at professionals working in clinical practice, including: nurses, nutritionists, physiotherapists and anybody who works directly with obese patients as well as students training in the area of obesity.

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info

The Scientific Committee invite submissions of abstracts for poster presentations relating to the themes around which the conference will be developed. 


We will try to accommodate the majority of abstracts; however, the final decision about acceptance will be made by the Scientific Committee. 


/ Abstracts for Poster and Oral Presentations

We encourage presentation of work in oral or poster format. Poster presentations are an exhibition which will enable discussion with presenters. Poster authors will be asked to stand by their poster during scheduled poster presentation times (usually during lunch breaks). Abstracts should take the form of traditional meeting abstracts with a clear aim, brief description of methods, results and conclusions.  Posters must be in English.


In addition, the Scientific Committee will review and select eight of the highest-ranking abstracts from any candidates who wish to present their work orally within the main scientific programme. 


/ Submission Process                                           





Abstracts must be written in English. The length of the abstracts is a maximum of 250 words in the body of the abstract, plus title and author(s) names and affiliations. No references or acknowledgment sections are required. Please state clearly on the abstract submission if authors wish to be considered for oral presentation of the abstract. 


Abstract submissions will need to be emailed to – hottopics@worldobesity.org by Friday 22nd April 2016.


/ Confirmation

Authors will be notified of the abstract review outcome on or before Friday 3rd June 2016. Further presentation instructions will be given to authors. 


It is our intention to accept as many high-quality abstracts as can be accommodated by the venue and schedule.  





/ Presenter Responsibilities


All abstracts must contain original data not previously presented or published. The responsibility for the abstract contents is solely of the author(s). The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the contents of the abstract before submission. Abstracts will be considered only if consistent with the above instructions and received by the deadline.
