The RACMEM local organizing committee is pleased to welcome you to participate to RACMEM 2020. This exceptional event will bring to Québec City a group of internationally recognized and established scientists to discuss significant, trend-setting issues related to energy homeostasis and metabolism. Because of the remarkable originality of its themes and the outstanding quality of its speakers, RACMEM 2020 will meet the exacting demands of the RACMEM organization, which has previously held highly successful conferences in Denver (2008), Maastricht (2011), Tokyo (2014), and Fribourg (2017).


RACMEM conferences provide a forum for scientists from both academia and industry (nutritional, pharmaceutical, biothechnology, bio-imaging) to meet and discuss the latest conceptual advances, controversies, and methodological issues related to energy homeostasis/metabolism and the assessment of energy intake, energy expenditure and substrate oxidation in humans and animals. The conference will provide a platform for world experts and young scientists to interact through plenary presentations and discussions as well as short oral communications and poster presentations (through abstract submission).


We, members of the local organizing committee, look forward to hosting you at RACMEM 2020, a unique triennial scientific gathering, which will this time take place in Québec City (Canada) on Oct 22-25, 2020.
