The Society for Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes of South Africa (SEMDSA) is proud and excited to have been selected to host ICE 2018 together with our 53rd annual SEMDSA Congress.   Cape Town, with its natural beauty, diversity, world-class facilities and long tradition of housing and promoting academic excellence is the perfect venue to welcome endocrinologists and physicians from around the world.  The close proximity of the many tourist attractions in Cape Town provide a unique and exciting opportunity for researchers and clinicians to be exposed to state-of-the-art academic endocrinology whilst enjoying the numerous high quality tourist attractions, restaurants and sporting opportunities.  The Cape Town Convention Centre is a world-class conference facility located in the centre of the tourist district of Cape Town, offers majestic views of Table Mountain and is surrounded by numerous luxurious hotels.  ICE 2018 is a conference not to be missed and SEMDSA is therefore looking forward to welcoming our many colleagues from around the world.
