COVID-19 Update

With the continued uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Diabetes Canada, the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (CSEM) and the National Planning Committee have collectively decided to cancel the 2020 Professional Conference, originally scheduled October 28-31 in Calgary.

Our main priority is the health and well-being of staff, volunteers, and delegates.

The necessary upfront planning several months in advance of our usual on-site Conference is just not feasible in our present environment.

We are planning ways to transform the 2020 Professional Conference from an in-person event to a virtual education experience. Stay tuned for more details as soon as they are available!

We will continue to accept abstracts, with extended deadlines, during this transition. Registrants are being offered a full refund of their conference fees or the option to apply them to the virtual conference.

Call for abstracts

Abstracts are now being accepted for the 2020 Diabetes Canada/Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (CSEM) Professional Conference. New this year, CSEM residents may submit their clinical vignettes/research projects via the Diabetes Canada/CSEM Professional Conference abstract submission site.

General abstract submission has been extended until early Summer 2020.

CSEM resident clinical vignette/research project submissions close on Monday, September 7, 2020, 11:59 pm EDT.
