Welcome Message

Dear esteemed colleagues,

On behalf of the Korean Society for the Study of Obesity (KSSO), we welcome you to attend the 2017 International Congress on Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome (ICOMES) in conjunction with the 47th Annual Scientific Meeting of KSSO from Thursday 31 August to Sunday 3 September 2017 at Conrad Hotel in Seoul, Korea.

We cordially invite all the participants who are interested in sharing their knowledge and research in the arena of Obesity. The ICOMES expects more than 1,000 participants around the globe. Since 2015 the ICOMES has grown into the leading-scientific meeting in the field and we are grateful for friends to have taken part in meetings.

This year’s meeting is the excellent opportunity for the delegates from Universities and Institutes to interact with the world class Scientists. The scientific committee invited distinguished speakers for lectures and symposia.

The Grand Slogan of KSSO “Standing as the Administrative Society on Obesity” will be alive until the era’s coming – Non-obese world’s coming, and we have been now pouring a lot of efforts to accurately look into the current status of the field and the environment of the relevant professionals across the world. Once again, we declare the meeting will be as the historical beginning to achieve the ultimate goal of yours as well. The congress’s theme is “The Gravity of Obesity : How to Escape from It” and the programs will be fit for your needs on academic merits.

We all look forward to meeting many of you in ICOMES.

Best regards,

Kee-Hyoung Lee
Korean Society for the Study of Obesity
