Developing Topic Abstract Submissions
Submission dates: April 20-May 4, 2015
Developing Topic submissions are designed to bring the latest research findings in the field to AAIC attendees. Specifically, they are abstracts in which the research findings are not available during the general abstract submission deadline in February.
Note: AAIC 2015 Developing Topic abstracts will be considered for poster presentations only unless the research is considered to be late-breaking.
- Late-breaking research/newness of information.
- Potential impact on the research community.
- Quality of scientific research.
- Relevance to Alzheimer's disease and related disorders.
- Topics of interest include basic and translational science, diagnosis and prognosis, therapeutics, and public health and psychosocial issues.
- Previously submitted/reviewed abstracts will not be considered.
- A limited number of abstracts are selected, with selection based on timeliness and scientific merit.
