Welcome to SSSD2020!
Trondheim April 16-18 2020
Update, March 29th:
We have been looking forward to hosting the 2020 annual meeting of the SSSD here in Trondheim. We have aimed to put together a program that would be of interest to a broad range of diabetes researchers, and we have been excited about the positive responses from both invited lecturers and invited sponsors. By early March, there were 25 submitted and approved abstracts, and in total 70 participants.
Then the coronavirus situation suddenly escalated. It seems very likely that the current advice and bans against travel and meetings will still be in place at the time of the SSSD meeting. We have therefore, in agreement with the conference venue Scandic Nidelven, decided to postpone the SSSD meeting in Trondheim to the spring of 2021.
We have investigated the possibility to hold a one-day digital meeting in April 2020, and some of you have expressed interest in such a meeting. However, we realize that for most of you a digital meeting will not be a good substitute for the planned meeting, and we have decided not to hold a digital meeting. Instead, we invite all abstract presenters to submit either the same, updated, or new abstracts to next year’s meeting.
We will inform you as soon as the dates for next year’s meeting have been decided, and we hope to see you all in Trondheim next year!
We will refund the registration fee for this year's conference, and will send you an email with details on that matter.
We hope you are all doing well despite the challenging circumstances!
On behalf of the organizers,
Bjørn Olav Åsvold
