Poster/Abstract Submission

2021 Poster/Abstract Submissions

Submission open June 7 – July, 19, 2021

Submit your poster/abstract for consideration at the Overcoming Obesity 2021 Conference in Chicago. Poster/abstract submission is open to anyone who has conducted research in areas related to the treatment of obesity or obesity-related diseases. We are particularly interested in abstracts that fit with the conference theme of Treat Obesity Across the Lifespan, but this is not required. If selected, this is a great opportunity to showcase your obesity treatment research and gain exposure among industry leaders and colleagues in the field of obesity medicine!

The poster/abstract must be submitted through the online portal by 11:59 PM EST on July 19, 2021. All submissions will be peer-reviewed to ensure the information presented is relevant, valid, and complements the material presented at the Overcoming Obesity 2021 Conference. Accepted poster/abstract presenters will be notified by early August and are required to register to attend the Fall Obesity Summit. Up to three poster/abstracts may also be selected to give an oral presentation.


  • Deadline for poster/abstract submission: July 19, 2021 at 11:59 PM EST
  • Presenters will be notified by August 13, 2021, if their poster/abstract is selected. (Poster/abstract submission does not guarantee proposal selection.)
  • You will have the option to choose if you would like to present in person (September 23-26, 2021 in Chicago, IL), Virtually (October 14-16, 2021), or both.
  • After you submit your poster/abstract proposal, you will receive a confirmation email with directions on how to pay the abstract submission fee ($50 for members and $65 for non-members). You must pay the abstract submission fee for your poster/abstract to be considered.
  • The top three submissions will be selected and invited to give a 15-minute oral presentation in the exhibit hall during the conference
