London International Eating Disorders Conference 2021

QEII Centre, 23, 24 & 25 March 2021

We are delighted to invite you to the 15th International London Eating Disorders Conference (LEDC), taking place at QEII Centre in London on 23-25 March 2021.

LEDC has been held every 2 years since 1993 and is widely regarded as one of the leading eating disorders conferences in the world. The conference will be important to attend for all healthcare professionals working in the field including psychiatrists, psychologists, paediatricians, GPs, dietitians, occupational therapists and specialist nurses.

The programme will contain a combination of keynote and plenary lectures, practical workshop sessions and the latest research in the form of short paper and poster presentations.

There will also be plenty of time to network with your colleagues and peers through multiple discussion periods, networking sessions and social functions.


Our call for papers will open in early 2020, so look out for announcements! The Professor Bryan Lask Rising Star in Research Award will recognise the talent, innovation and expertise of promising new researchers in the field.

We look forward to welcoming you to London in 2021.

Kind Regards,

Rachel Bryant-Waugh & Ian Frampton
