The Federation of International Danube Symposia on Diabetes mellitus, FID, represents as a Central-European Diabetes Association, a non-profit organisation, whose aim is to promote scientific interests and cooperation between all central european groups acting in the area of diabetes mellitus.
This purpose is served by the FID organized symposia, the “International Danube Symposia”, which should take place alternatively in western and eastern central-European locations, acompanied by satellite symposia and other smaller events, each held in different locations. The Symposia were held so far by tradition mainly in German, but in future English should be increasingly used.

Speaker Presentation Submission Deadline
Dear colleagues and friends,
It is our pleasure to announce the Congress of the Central European Diabetes Association (CEDA)/ International Danube Symposium (FID) 2019, which will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria from 31st of October to 2nd of November at the Hilton Hotel and the National Palace of Culture. During this Congress we will also celebrate the 50-years anniversary of CEDA/FID.
Having in mind the enormous social impact of diabetes, it is also the fastest developing endocrinological area. Many new large clinical trials with new treatment options have been reported during the last years, and even more are progressing currently, changing the landscape of diabetes care according to the requirements of the evidence based medicine. The large dimensions of the health problem “Diabetes” stimulate the interdisciplinary integration with cardiologists, nephrologists and many other specialists in the interest of our patients. Diabetes – related guidelines are changing faster than ever before trying to adopt the newly generated data in this pan-medical field.
Our congress aims to present the newest information about diabetes, focusing on practical aspects of the new era in diabetes care. Attending the Congress, you will be able to meet renowned diabetologists from Central and Eastern Europe, but also from other countries outside this region.Worldwide Initiative for Diabetes Education (Worldwide Diabetes) will join the Congress with a symposium. Moreover, the official CEDA/FID anniversary dinner with historical lectures will be devoted to the half-century history of our organization.
We will be glad to have you as active participants at this important Congress.
