Abstracts for #ADIBudapest2016 due in 9 days

Screen Shot 2015-11-05 at 8.24.43 pmThere is just 9 days left to submit your abstracts for Alzheimer’s Disease International‘s leading global dementia conference. Have you got a bright idea you’d like to share, or some research you are involved in that would be interesting? Join the world’s leading dementia speakers and advocates and be a part of ADI’s next conference in Budapest in April by submitting an abstract now.

Abstracts should be submitted online. If you are living with dementia and prefer to submit your abstract by paper please download and submit the abstract form to adi2016@tensi.hu. To facilitate the review process we encourage all to submit their submission online where possible.

Dementia Alliance International also has a blog about writing Abstracts that may be useful. If you have a diagnosis of any type of dementia, you can join DAI here. I intend to submit at least one, which will be on the human rights of people with dementia.

It is imperative to fully respect people with dementia and this means that it is recommended presenters use dementia friendly language.

The members of Dementia Alliance International ask all those submitting an abstract to look at the language guidelines created by Alzheimer’s Australia in collaboration with people living with dementia.

  1. hi Kate, I want to submit an abstract and I’ve tried to register but it’s not completing the process by sending me an email. I’ve tried twice already… I will try to resolve on Monday.

The only thing missing in this global conversation is YOUR voice... Thank you.
