Dear Nordic colleagues,
we have a new date for you. The next Nordic ED conference will be arranged on September 7-9, 2022 in Oslo. We are so much looking forward to meeting you all again. We will open up the abstract submission system and the registration in the autumn, but please check www.nedsconference.com for any updates.
Before the conference, already in September 2021, we will arrange a webinar around the theme COVID-19 and eating disorders. The webinar will be arranged on September 15 in the afternoon. The program and registration link will be posted here as soon as the program and arrangements are ready.
At our last board meeting, we decided to postpone the conference due to the COVID-19 situation. After making some arrangements and investigations, we are now ready to present the new dates for NEDS 2020. The conference will be arranged on February 3-5, 2021.
As the conference now is approximately nine months away, you will have plenty of time to prepare abstracts and presentations. We did receive 35 abstracts within the deadline for submission. We want more! We will of course re-open the abstract submission system and set a new deadline. Authors of the already submitted abstract will have the possibility to revise or withdraw their abstracts.
We have also decided to postpone the society´s general assembly. It will be arranged during the conference and the current board will continue its work until then.
Please follow our website https://nedsconference.com/ for updates, new deadlines and other useful information.
Stay safe and take care of each other! We all look forward to seeing you all once the crisis is over.
Rasmus Isomaa, chairman of the Nordic Eating Disorder Society
Calling all European Eating Disorder Professionals!
March 8-10, 2018
As you know, our colleagues in Europe are working to form the AED European Chapter, and the first meeting will take place on March 10, 2018, in Rome, Italy. Dr. Stephanie Bauer, AED President, will open the day and welcome
The first half of the day will feature outstanding presentations on the theme of Best Practices to Prevent and Treat Eating Disorders, by internationally renowned Eating Disorder professionals
The Afternoon will feature a business meeting for the adoption of bylaws, election of officers and board, and discussion on meetings and activities.
All European Eating Disorder clinicians, researchers, dieticians, nutritionists, and activists are welcome. There is no registration charge for attending the March 10 meeting.
The meeting will be on the last day of the XI meeting of SISCDA – the Italian Eating Disorder Society. Details on the full SISCDA meeting are here: http://www.sisdca.it/public//xi-congresso-sisdca-2018.pdf
The Second Annual #WorldEatingDisordersDay will take place on June 2, 2017. World Eating Disorders Action Day (#WeDoAct) is a grassroots movement designed for and by people affected by an eating disorder, their families, and the medical and health professionals who support them. Uniting activists across the globe, the aim is to expand global awareness of eating disorders as genetically linked, treatable illnesses that can affect anyone.
The 2017 #WeDoActTogether theme and focus is on partnerships that move us forward as affected people, carers, clinicians, and researchers. Meaningful relationships and connections are vital to recovery.

WELCOME TO VILNIUS!
On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing committees I would like to invite you to participate in the Vilnius meeting of the European Council for Eating Disorders.
For the first time an international conference on eating disorders takes place in the former Soviet region. The meeting will bring together specialists from all over Europe and beyond to share their knowledge, to discuss and debate new approaches, and to meet professionals from a part of the world where services are either under-developed or completely absent, where the desire to learn from European colleagues is particularly strong and where societies are still in the process of transformation from a totalitarian past to an open society based on the rule of law.
The main theme of the conference is Eating Disorders in Multicultural Settings, a very important issue in a multi-ethnic and globalized world where communities are increasingly diverse and as a result professionals are challenged to take a wide variety of socio-cultural aspects into account when providing state of the art treatment.
The abstract submission for the upcoming NEDS conference in Helsinki 21-23 September 2016 is open. We welcome four types of abstracts:
- Scientific paper presentations (15-20 minutes oral presentations)
- Workshops arranged by Nordic Interest Groups (60-90 minutes)
- Clinical workshops on treatment methods or therapeutic interventions (60-90 minutes)
- Poster presentations (Electronic poster format)
Deadline for all abstracts 31.12.2015. Submit your abstract at: www.nedsconference.com/abstracts/
In addition to the plenary sessions at the conference, we are looking forward to a lively exchange of ideas from all Nordic countries. The abstract submission system will open in the autumn of 2015, so start the discussions in your clinics and research groups.
We will ask for four types of abstracts:
1. Scientific paper presentations (15-20 minutes oral presentations)
2. Workshops arranged by Nordic Interest Groups (60-90 minutes)
3. Clinical workshops on treatment methods or therapeutic interventions (60-90 minutes)
4. Poster presentations (Electronic poster format)
More information will be published on the conference website www.nedsconference.com early fall 2015.
The programme for Neds Conference 2016 is taking form. We have many exciting speakers and topics already confirmed for the upcoming event.
Plenary sessions will cover topics such as what evidence based treatment really means; misconceptions about eating disorders; the personality of the patient; treatment expectations; compulsive exercise; history of restraint in psychiatry. Our speakers include Cynthia Bulik, Carrie Arnold, Jörgen Herlofson, David Clinton, Pia Charpentier, and Jorun Sundgot-Borgen.
Thank you Stockholm! Welcome to Helsinki!
