Welcome to London!
The organising committee for the 16th Immunology of Diabetes Society Congress would like to invite participants to this exciting meeting. We have arranged talks on a wide range of current topics of interest to the community, which include ground-breaking technologies, cell-based and advanced therapeutics, immmunopathology of type 1 diabetes, pathways to beta cell failure, updates from the Networks – nPod, TEDDY, Trialnet and the Immune Tolerance Network, as well as an adversarial debate and a “balloon debate”. There will be ample opportunities for networking and discussion, to move towards our common goal of understanding the immunology of type 1 diabetes and how we may intervene to change the course of disease.
We hope you will join us at the QEII in the heart of London, where you will enjoy views of Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament and more importantly benefit from interesting and thought-provoking sessions. In addition to presentations from leading speakers in the field, submission is open for short oral and poster presentations. There is sure to be something at the meeting for everyone and we look forward to welcoming you to London!

From purpose-built convention hotels and smart budget chains to sleek, city apartments, university accommodation and impressive brands, London offers a great variety of accommodation options. The majority of hotel rooms are in the 4-star sector, including brands such as Hilton, Holiday Inn, Radisson Blu Edwardian, Marriott and Accor to name just a few. However, London also offers a growing number of private apartments that can be rented for a short stay, as well as a wide choice of guest houses and bed & breakfasts. Across the city, budget-conscious delegates can make the most of value brands like Travelodge and Premier Inn, which now have the largest presence by the number of rooms in a single brand.
