Welcome Invitation

Live Impressions
from EASD 2012

Watch live impressions from the 48th Annual Meeting of the European Association for Diabetes from Berlin, Germany

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, it is my great pleasure and honour to invite you to join the EASD Annual Meeting 2012 in Berlin, Germany. Set against a background of a 300-year tradition in academic research at the historic Charité Hospital which has now evolved into the Charité University Medicine Berlin, the EASD Annual Meeting promises to offer exciting insights into the most recent research findings in all aspects of diabetology.

Berlin mirrors the most important recent political developments in the western world which have transformed it into a truly international city with extraordinary architecture, uniting historical buildings with contemporary design. Berlin’s vivid, young and experimental spirit has attracted an active art scene which can be witnessed in numerous exhibitions and which contrasts beautifully with the great art and cultural treasures which are exhibited on the famous Museumsinsel (Museum Island), as well as in almost one hundred museums and cultural sites all over Berlin.  

The meeting will take place at the Messe Berlin Exhibition Halls in Berlin-Charlottenburg which have excellent road and suburban rail links.  The meeting will commence with a Welcome Reception on the evening of Monday, 1 October, followed by the Opening Ceremony on the morning of Tuesday, 2 October.  The meeting will end at lunchtime on Friday, 5 October with the Closing Ceremony followed by a Farewell Reception. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin where you will have the opportunity to enjoy an exciting scientific conference in a rich cultural and historical setting.
