Welcome to the 2013 symposium suggestion site for The Obesity Society
It's time to start planning for Obesity Week 2013! The Annual Program Committee is currently accepting suggestions for topic areas, symposia, and potential speakers as part of the planning procedure for the TOS program content for Obesity Week 2013. Your suggestions will be considered as the Committee puts together the overall meeting program.
**Please note that TOS is asking for suggestions for possible symposium topics and speakers. TOS is not requesting formal symposium submissions, but rather suggestions for topic areas and possible speakers. This differs from other societies that either accept or reject symposium submissions in their entirety. Even if accepted, submissions may be modified by the Program Committee to fit the overall Program**
Guidelines for Symposia Suggestions
The deadline for submissions is Friday, November 30, 2012, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time.
Please identify a track or tracks that are appropriate for the symposia suggestion. Joint/cross-track symposia are desirable.
Symposia submissions should NOT duplicate topics covered in the last TOS meeting.
Suggested speakers (2-4) may include mix of TOS member and non-member
speakers. TOS members are preferred. Slots for international speakers are limited.
DO NOT contact suggested speakers in advance as we cannot guarantee their inclusion in
the program. Invitations will ONLY be made by members of the Program Committee.
