Jonge NVDO bijeenkomst

Annual meeting of the young investigators of the Dutch Association for Diabetes Research (‘Jonge NVDO-bijeenkomst’)

Once yearly, this meeting is held in the Netherlands. Young investigators from the Netherlands and Belgium who participate in clinical, basic or epidemiological research related to diabetes are invited to submit an abstract. 12-16 participants usually attend the meeting and present their data. Two senior discussants and the other presenters provide feedback. An abstract may consist of (preliminary) data, a case report or a research proposal.

This meeting is known for its relaxed, friendly and low-threshold atmosphere where basic concepts may be discussed that are often assumed to be known at larger conferences.
It is a small meeting by and for young investigators, where you can practice presenting and discussing research in a conference-like setting, as well as share experiences and socialize.
With other young investigators in the field during the included social programme. A big advantage of this meeting is that not only results may be discussed, but also plans for future research.
The audience is usually very versatile, with researchers discussing basic, epidemiological, translational or clinical research. This may be from any relevant perspective: for example medical, biomedical, nursing or dietary. The Young NVDO Meeting usually comprises two days and includes lunch, dinner, an overnight stay, and breakfast.

The next meeting will likely be held
in January of 2023

It is currently not possible to send in your abstract.

Northern European Young Diabetologists (NEYD)

The annual meeting of North European Young Diabetologists (NEYD, formerly Anglo-Danish-Dutch Diabetes Group) will take place from Wednesday May 18th until May 20th 2022 in The Netherlands.

NEYD is just as relaxed, friendly and low-threshold as the Young NVDO Meeting, but with a real international element to it. More experienced researchers are on hand to guide and critique. At the end of the meeting one senior investigator will hold a state-of-the-art lecture, and two other senior investigators will have a debate on a controversial or challenging diabetes-related topic. In addition to the scientific program, each year a social activity (usually outdoors) is organized which additionally provides the opportunity to meet diabetes researchers from other countries in a relaxed environment.

In 2022 the meeting will be held in The Netherlands, under the flag of the Dutch Association for Diabetes Research. The costs to participate are approximately € 200,00 (including registration, hotel and meals).

The next meeting will be held in the Netherlands, May 18th-20th 2022

Abstracts may be sent in before March 1st 2022
NEYD meeting 2018 in Bergen aan Zee, The Netherlands
NEYD meeting 2019 in Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark
Hybrid jNVDO/NEYD meeting 2021,
The Netherlands

Both meetings are part of the parent organization Dutch Association for Diabetes Research (NVDO) and financially supported by an unrestricted grant from Sanofi.

Guidelines for abstract submission

These guidelines apply to both Young NVDO Meetings (Jonge NVDO Bijeenkomst & Northern European Young Diabetologists (NEYD)). You can submit your abstract for any of the two meetings by email through clicking the button “Send in Your Abstract or Questions by Mail”.

  • All abstracts have to be submitted in English.
  • Submit your abstract as a Word file, using Calibri font, size 11, with single line spacing.
  • Start your abstract with the title, authors and affiliations. Indicate how many words you used after the affiliations, before the Background (e.g. Words: 297/300).
  • The word limit has been set at 300 words, not including title, authors, affiliations and word indication.
  • The use of one figure or one table is permitted, but will be counted as 50 words. Please send your figure or table in a separate file.
  • The abstract must be structured, use subheadings: e.g. Background, Methods, Results, Discussion/Conclusion.
  • For abstracts with research plans only, subheadings can be adjusted to exclude Results. Elaborate on the relevance and clinical consequences of your research plan in the subheading Discussion.
  • Begin each subsection as a new paragraph. Leave one blank line between each paragraph.
