During this two-day small-scale conference, the attendants will have the opportunity to hear international senior experts in the field of maternal obesity and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. The program is framed to allow for intensive questioning and interaction with the speakers. Also, young and established researchers are invited to present their research related to the themes in posters and oral communication sessions. The best abstracts will be awarded a special prize! The organisers aim for a low impact and healthy meeting focussing on accessibility for public transport, a healthy meeting environment and time for social activities and interaction.
