1st International Virtual Minisymposium on Open-Source Diabetes Simulation

Wednesday, 14th December 2022, 16:00 UTC

Why join?

In recent years, several open source projects have been published as part of research projects or driven by private initiatives.
It is part of our mission to help ensure that available technology reaches and serves people with diabetes.
By connecting the different stakeholders and creating a community, we want to leverage synergies and help to ensure that the numerous existing ideas are implemented as quickly and effectively as possible and contribute to medical care or scientific progress.


16:00 Welcoming
16:10 Short presentations of existing open-source initiatives

18:00 Plenary discussion

Suggested topics:

  • Future collaboration: follow-up event, foundation of a network (formal organization, communication medium / platform, …)
  • Open source – a new code of conduct for research including numerical simulation?
  • Best practice (disclaimers and other legal affairs, funding, …)

19:00 Virtual get-together on Gather Town


Registration is free and open until December 4th 2022.
