IFSO-EC – European Obesity Summit 2016 (EOS 2016)

IFSO EC Congress 2016

Our 2016 Congress was held as part of the European Obesity Summit 2016 (EOS 2016 ). The Summit (www.obesity-summit.eu) was organized in partnership between IFSO-EC and the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) and was held in Gothenburg, Sweden, June 1st – 4th 2016, incorporating both the 2016 IFSO-EC Biennial Congress and EASO´s ECO 2016. 550 participants from 52 countries took part in this outstanding event on the IFSO-EC side. The total attendance of the EOS 2016 exceeded 1500 participants.

IFSO-EC Abstract Prize

An IFSO-EC Abstract Prize Session was held as part of our congress for the first time. The Scientific Committee selected the best abstracts and the authors were asked to present their work to an Expert Panel which scored each presentation.  This jury was composed of members of the IFSO-EC Scientific Committee and of the IFSO-EC Executive Council. The jury voted Dr Meritxell Garay Solà from Spain Best Author. We congratulate her on her paper, entitled “Antrum preservation seems to accelerate gastric emptying after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy without having effects on weight loss.”



Thank you for your attendance.


We very much hope to see you at the next IFSO-EC event, the IFSO-European Chapter Symposium in Naples, Italy, during the first week of May 2017 (final dates will be announced soon).


Sincerely yours,


Michel Suter

President, IFSO European Chapter
