The ECE Forums, introduced at the 10th ECE in London (2012), have proven a successful, popular addition to the programme of sessions at the ECE, enabling a wider participation amongst delegates.
ECE Forums are intended to be less formal than traditional sessions, and to have a workshop flavour and be more interactive. The format of the ECE Forum is flexible – discussion, debate, workshop, data blitz, etc.
ECE Forums will cover the following topics:
- Biomarkers to predict the ketogenic diet and how to get started
