Since the first meeting in 2011, ICDM has become a leading international meeting on diabetes and metabolism in Asia. Every year, over 1,500 clinicians and scientists from dozens of countries attend ICDM to learn the latest knowledge on diabetes care, and to share the ideas on science and technology to fight against diabetes.
The scientific program of ICDM 2018 includes plenary lectures from Prof. Barbara B. Kahn (Harvard University, USA), and Prof. Philipp E. Scherer (UT Southwestern, USA). There will be more than 20 symposium sessions covering various aspect of diabetes care and research from cutting-edge basic research to up-to-date, evidence-based treatment strategies as well as clinical practice guidelines, particularly for Asian populations. Besides, there will be excellent pre- and post- Congress meetings.

"Comprehensive education course for Asian diabetes educators" will be held right after ICDM2018 on 14th October 2018.
