The 7th emed Scientific Millennium Meeting successfully took place in Munich, Germany. It was a special occasion not just because of the date – the first meeting of the millennium - but also because this was the first occasion for organising a meeting in novel’s home town. The meeting was hosted by Prof Biemer of the Technical University Munich, Klinikum Rechts der Isar.

July 2-6, 2014

The 14th biennial ESM was held in the historic Cambridge, MA July 2-6, 2014. The scientific presentation at this year’s conference and the keynotes by Dava Newman, Marian Hannan, Georg Duda and Paolo Bonato encompassed science from the cellular level to population science and from Earth to space! The art in science award presentations came from many different fields including diabetes, anthropology, geriatric, musical and clinical science.

This year’s conference was held over the American 4th of July Holiday.  The history of Cambridge was tied into each of our events and included the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Harvard Yard, the Longfellow House and much more!  While hurricane Arthur did its best to derail our plans on July 4th we made the best of the day which included World Cup soccer (fútbol) and an enjoyable (but wet) harbor cruise.

The conference concluded with a magnificent concert performance by pianist Henriette Gärtner, who in turn was also the art in science award winner for 2014. The scientific banquet was held at the Sheraton Commander conference site and attendees enjoyed contra music and dancing!

ESM 2014 was again a huge success and we look forward to the meeting in two years and the time we get to spend with our ESM friends and colleagues!

December 7, 2013

The meeting was held at the conclusion of the International Diabetes Federation World Congress (IDF) held in Melbourne, so we were extremely lucky to have Peter Seitz (CEO, novel) and Holger Neumann (product management, novel) in town. The day was well attended with approximately 30 Australian users present. Holger did a great job in the introduction (or reminding the crowd) of the principles of pressure measurement, and in collaboration with Peter went on to talk about what is new at novel and what the crew in Munich are working on. There were also some presentations from current users of the systems from around Australia, and on behalf of the rest of the audience would like to thank those people for volunteering their time to prepare a presentation. We spent the last part of the day asking questions of the experts from Munich, and getting up close and personal with the latest pressure measurement technology.

The view, the catering, the relaxed Aussie audience and the experts all combined to make a great day, and I received lots of positive feedback from those who attended. We plan to have another users meeting in 2014 as part of the Australasian Biomechanics Congress at the University of Wollongong.
