Welcome

On behalf of the International Bariatric Club (IBC) and the University of Oxford we are delighted to invite you to the 2nd IBC Oxford World Congress to be held from April 2nd to 3rd, 2019 at the University of Oxford with dinner on both days in the famous Christ Church Hall, University of Oxford. The University of Oxford is the perfect setting for the congress with its rich history of academic excellence, innovation, leadership and close proximity to London. The venue of the congress, the University of Oxford Examinations School is the largest conference venue in Oxford and is a Grade II listed historic building of unimaginable architectural beauty only 10 minutes walk from Christ Church.

The congress will provide a forum for the detailed analysis and interrogation of key issues in the management of obesity and diabetes from a surgical, medical, endoscopic and public health perspective.

Dinner on both days will be at Christ Church, University of Oxford. Christ Church is one of the largest colleges of the University of Oxford with notable alumni including Albert Einstein, Sir Tim Berners-Lee (Inventor of the World Wide Web), King Edward VII, 13

British Prime Ministers, the founder of the state of Pennsylvania, William Penn, the theologian John Wesley, the poet W.H. Auden and the author and mathematician Professor Charles Dodgson (pen name Lewis Carroll) who wrote ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Christ Church is also one of a select few colleges chosen to be a filming location for the ‘Harry Potter’ films.

This conference is more than an academic conference, it is an experience of the fusion of academia and intense scrutiny of key aspects of obesity and diabetes in a historical and prestigious world class university setting
