Letter of Invitation

Diabetes Technology Society (DTS) invites scientists, clinicians, and health care professionals from around the world to attend the 18th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting on November 8-10, 2018 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

This will be an excellent opportunity to meet leading scientists in the field of diabetes technology research and learn about the latest technological advances for people with diabetes. Last year's meeting in Bethesda, Maryland brought together 500 clinicians and scientists from 20 countries to focus on applying science and technology to fight diabetes.

This year's Diabetes Technology Meeting will include sessions on: (1) Healthcare Information Technology (2) CGM-Based Outcome Metrics (3) FDA Regulation of Decision Support Software (4) Artificial Pancreas (5) Novel Insulins (6) Digital Diabetes Data Science (7) Hot Topics in Diabetes Technology (8) Infusion Sets (9) Technology to Improve Accuracy of CGMs (10) A Live Demonstration. 

The format will include state-of-the-art lectures, oral presentations of abstracts, panel discussions with Q&A sessions, and two poster sessions. The submitted abstracts will be available to all attendees. Last year we received over 100 abstracts.

On Thursday, November 8, Diabetes Technology Society will present 4 optional pre-meeting workshops.
Concurrent morning workshops are:

  • Workshop A: Adherence to Diabetes Therapy
  • Workshop B: Diabetes Technology in the Hospital

Concurrent afternoon sessions are:

  • Workshop C: The Future of Self-Monitoring of Blood Glucose
  • Workshop D: Implanted Sensors

On the afternoons of November 8 and 9, we will have a poster session. During the meeting, on November 9 and 10, breakfast and lunch will be provided, as well as morning and afternoon snacks.

We look forward to seeing you in Bethesda and sharing information about projects of mutual interest.
