   An obesity epidemic is sweeping across the Westernized world. More
   than ever, there is an acknowledgement that the regulation of body
   weight regulation is more complicated than ever imagined. The last
   decade has seen rapid progress in our understanding of how body weight
   is regulated; multiple organs are involved adding to the complexity.
   These exciting discoveries are leading us in new directions in
   therapeutics and helping us to better understand of mechanisms
   underlying the successes of obesity surgery.
   The goal of this meeting is to bring to light recent advances in the
   molecular and cellular aspects of these inter-related systems
   controlling body weight. It is becoming increasingly clear that there
   are multiple interlocking and redundant systems controlling energy
   intake, energy expenditure, substrate selection and ultimately body
   weight. This meeting will assemble international leaders from each of
   these thematic areas.
   The program highlights recent advances in the molecular etiology of in
   the major peripheral organs that orchestrate energy balance: adipose
   tissue, the brain and the gut. Emphasis will be placed on the role of
   the gut in the regulation of energy metabolism, how the peripheral
   tissues signal to the brain, and adipose tissue as an orchestrator of
   metabolism.
   A major goal of the meeting is to provide a forum that encourages
   interactions between basic and translational scientists at all career
   levels to critically evaluate new developments and current
   controversies. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will
   be further enhanced by the concurrent meeting on
