The Body Mass Index(BMI), or Quetelet index, is a measure of relative mass based on an individual's weight and height .Devised in 1845 by the Belgian polymath Adolphe Quetelet during the course of developing "social physics", it is derived as the individual's body mass divided by the square of their height – with the value universally being given in units of kg/m2.BMI Prime, a simple modification of the BMI system, is the ratio of actual BMI to upper limit BMI (currently defined at BMI 25). As defined, BMI Prime is also the ratio of body weight to upper body weight limit, calculated at BMI 25. Since it is the ratio of two separate BMI values, BMI Prime is a dimensionless number, without associated units.

Scope and Importance:
Body Mass Index Conference provides the scope for opportunities to learn progressed by international scientists and academicians. Body Mass Index is also sometimes also called as BMI. Body Mass Index Conference offers excessive quality content to suit the diverse professional development to treat people all over the globe. It is a perfect platform to discuss the current discoveries and developments in the field of Body Mass Index.
Individuals with BMI Prime less than 0.74 are underweight; those between 0.74 and 1.00 have optimal weight; and those at 1.00 or greater are overweight. BMI Prime is useful clinically because individuals can tell, at a glance, by what percentage they deviate from their upper weight limits. BMI Prime allows easy comparison between populations whose upper limit BMI values differ. While the formula previously called the Quetelet Index for BMI dates to the beginning of the 19th century, the new term "body mass index" for the ratio, the interest in measuring body fat being due to obesity becoming a discernible issue in prosperous Western societies..
BMI was explicitly cited by Keys as being appropriate for population studies, and inappropriate for individual diagnosis. Nevertheless, due to its simplicity, it came to be widely used for individual diagnosis. Body Mass Index provides a simple numeric measure of a person's thickness or thinness, allowing health specialized to talk about overweight and underweight problems more independently with their patients. Though, BMI has become controversial because many people, including physicians, have come to rely on its perceptible numerical ability for medical diagnosis, but that was never the BMI's function; it is meant to be used as a simple means of classifying sedentary (physically inactive) individuals, or rather, populations, with an middling body composition. For these individuals, the current value settings are as follows: a BMI of 18.5 to 25 may indicate optimal weight, a BMI lower than 18.5 suggest the person is underweight, a number above 25 may specify the person is overweight, a number above 30 suggest the person is obese.
For a known height, BMI is proportional to mass. However, for a given mass, BMI is inversely proportional to the square of the height. So, if all body dimensions double and mass scales naturally with the cube of the height, then BMI doubles instead of remaining the same. This result in taller people having a reported BMI that is uncharacteristically high compared to their actual body fat levels. The Ponderal index is based on this natural scaling of mass with the third power of the height. However, many taller people are not just "scaled up" short people, but tend to have narrower frames in ratio to their height. Each year then BMI conference attracts about 3000 submitted scientific papers. A technical program committee of more than 1,500 experts provides more than 10,000 reviews, and from this a small fraction of the submitted papers are accepted for publication and presentation at the conference.
