The 83rd Scientific Sessions will be held in San Diego, CA and virtually!

We encourage you to join us June 23–26, 2023 at the San Diego Convention Center.

The Scientific Sessions Planning Committee of the American Diabetes Association® (ADA) is developing a challenging and exciting program that reaches across diverse disciplines to present topics of relevance to diabetes care and treatment. For those unable to join us in person, we are planning a hybrid program to ensure as many people as possible can participate. Visit to see the latest updates as they become available.

Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission for the 83rd Scientific Sessions is open!

The committee encourages submissions that are innovative, challenge current treatment paradigms, and represent the latest advances in basic, clinical, and translational science. This is your opportunity to shape the scientific program and ensure that the most relevant topics are presented at next year’s meeting.

View the Abstract Submission Guidelines. Submissions will be accepted until Monday, January 9, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
Submit your research
Abstract Travel Grants: Young Investigator Travel Grants, in the amount of $1,000 USD each, will be awarded to a limited number of authors of abstracts that have been accepted for oral or poster presentation at the 83rd Scientific Sessions. Travel Grant applications will be sent to presenting authors at the time of abstract acceptance notification in mid-March.

ADA Professional Membership Groups offer Abstract Awards for Accepted Abstracts Attention ADA members, a number of Professional Membership Groups are offering abstract awards for abstracts accepted for presentation at the 83rdScientific Sessions. Submit your abstracts today for consideration. If your abstract is accepted for presentation at the meeting, you will be notified about applicable award opportunities.

Scientific Sessions Portal for Abstracts

This time-saving system eliminates the process of re-entering contact information and disclosures for authors listed on more than one abstract. All abstract authors are responsible for entering their information into the Portal once per meeting.

Don’t wait until the last minute! Those who plan to be a co-author on an abstract submission should complete the disclosure process now. Disclosures cannot be added after the abstract submission deadline.

View step-by-step Portal instructions.

Abstract submitters must first finalize their disclosure record to gain access to the abstract submission site.

Registration and Housing

Registration and housing will open in January 2023! Hotel reservations will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reserve your room early to get your first-choice hotel. Also, register early to take advantage of the discounted early bird rate.

Become a member or renew your membership now to be eligible for discounted member registration rates. In order to qualify for the member rate, your Medicine & Science or Health Care & Education membership must be active through June 30, 2023 at the time of meeting registration.
Be Aware!
There are companies claiming to offer registration and housing services for the ADA's Scientific Sessions, which are not affiliated with the ADA and do not offer any services on our behalf. You may receive emails or phone calls from these companies urging you to book hotel rooms or register. Registration and housing should only be accessed from, and reserved through the ADA's official registration and housing provider, Convention Management Resources (CMR) and ADA Internationals Group Department (ADA-IGD). If you do not see this logo on the website, they are not our official provider!

If you are contacted by any agency other than CMR or ADA-IGD, please immediately notify CMR.
