This meeting is intended for all researchers/clinicians working within any field of diabetes, including both clinical, basic and translational research and interdisciplinary research within fields related to diabetes.

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.  If the event is overbooked, the DDEA reserves the right to select participants based on predefined criteria.


The Scandinavian Society for the Study of Diabetes (SSSD) was established in the 1960s.

The SSSD2023 meeting will start at 2 pm on May 24 and end at noon on May 26.

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).
