SSSD 2023:

The registration for the 57th Annual Meeting of the Scandinavian Society for the Study of Diabetes (SSSD2023) in Aarhus, Denmark is now open The Annual Meeting will be held 24-26 May 2023 at the new Steno Diabetes Center Aarhus.

We encourage all researchers/clinicians working within any field of diabetes to participate. Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts, and participation is guaranteed for all who have submitted an abstract. All accepted abstracts will be presented orally with two Outstanding Presentation Awards each of 5000 NOK awarded to the two best presentations.


The program will alternate between invited talks within different areas of diabetes research (complications, epidemiology, appetite regulation, adipose tissue, glucagon, lifestyle interventions), and short oral presentations from participants.


Priority will be given to networking and social events, which will be incorporated throughout the meeting, to facilitate and strengthen collaborative relationships. During the meeting, the annual SSSD research prizes are awarded with presentations from the prize recipients (Knud Lundbæk Award, SSSD Young Investigator Award, Novo Nordisk Foundation Lecture Prize and The Swedish Child Diabetes Foundation Nordic Prize).


Kind regards

About SSSD

The Scandinavian Society for the Study of Diabetes (SSSD) was established in the 1960s. The aim of the SSSD is to bring together people with an interest in diabetes research, both from Nordic countries and elsewhere. We hold annual meetings aiming to strengthen collaborative relationships that will lead to advancement in diabetes research. The international board of the SSSD presently consists of Bjørn Olav Åsvold (chair) and Kåre Birkeland for Norway, Riitta Veijola for Finland, Nils Wierup and Gustaf Christoffersson for Sweden, Esben Søndergaard and Kristian Karstoft for Denmark and Helga Sigurjonsdottir and Ragnar Grímur Bjarnason from Iceland. We strongly encourage everyone residing in - and also outside - the Nordic countries who is interested in diabetes research to participate in the yearly meetings.
