Due to the continuing uncertainty about the coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the  15th International London Eating Disorders Conference (LEDC), to 8, 9 & 10 December 2021, still at the QEII Centre in London.

The 'Call for papers' is now open, so submit your abstract to be in with a chance of presenting a short paper or poster of your research or clinical study, or an interactive clinical workshop session.
