The conference programme relies on delegates having an academic understanding in the field of eating disorders and whilst elements of the conference may be of interest to those outside of the academic field, due to the programme content, design and the nature of the research and debates being presented, the conference content may not be suitable for someone currently suffering and could be significantly triggering for some.

However, the organisers and the Scientific Programme Committee are not liable for any loss or inconvenience caused as a result of such cancellation and the liability of the organisers shall be limited to the conference fee. Delegates are advised to take out their own travel insurance and to extend their policy to cover personal possessions as the conference does not cover individuals against cancellation of bookings or theft or damage to belongings.
