Register now for NEDS 2018

Dear friends and colleagues !

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Reykjavík, to the first ever held Nordic Eating Disorder Conference in Iceland, next September 12th to the 14th 2018 . It is an exciting time for our tiny Icelandic Eating Disorders Association as we are learning from and collaborating with the experienced Nordic Eating Disorder Society. The theme of the conference is Eating Disorders versus Healthy Lifestyle and we have many excellent speakers in the program. We hope you will all participate and take note that abstract submission opens on the December 15th.

Throughout the conference, we ask you to stay engaged and to network with other eating disorders professionals. While you are here, please take as well time to enjoy what our country and our wonderful nature has to offer. Whether you like city life or wild life, you can definitely find it in Iceland the days before or after the conference.

Registration is now open and we want to encourage you to plan your visit in good time to get better prices on flights and accommodation. For accommodation there are other options than hotels or guesthouses, like Airbnb.com and Reykjavik apartments that are worth checking out.

With our best wishes for an enjoyable and successful conference. We look forward to seeing you in Reykjavik next year. For further information please check our website  http://nedsconference.com/

Report from the board

Dear members,
here is a short report on what has been happening in NEDS during the spring. The board has held two telephone meetings, one in March and one in May. We are working on rules of procedure for the society to ensure continuity of our work. We have also been involved in the Academy for Eating Disorders (AED) via the Partner and Affiliate Organizations Network (PCAC). Within AED we constitute a Nordic Chapter. We will be participating in ICED 2017 in Prague and try to inspire creating new organisations within the ED field, There will also be a meeting on creating a European ED organisation.

NEDS 2018 in Reykjavik is just over a year away and the NEDS board will meet in Reykjavik in the fall to assist the Icelandic society in creating a great conference. Please follow www.nedsconference.com for updates.

Have a nice and relaxing summer!
Rasmus Isomaa and the rest of the NEDS board
