The Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC) is the world's premier forum for the reporting and discussion of groundbreaking research and information on the cause, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. As a part of the Association's research program, AAIC serves as a catalyst for generating new knowledge about Alzheimer's and fostering a vital, collegial research community.
All materials presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference 2013 (AAIC 2013) are embargoed for publication and broadcast until the date and time of presentation at the conference, or an embargo date and time specified by the Alzheimer’s Association in advance. If there are questions, please contact Niles Frantz in the Alzheimer’s Association Public Relations Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All news media representatives, scientists and their funders, and exhibitors/sponsors agree to be bound by the embargoes and release times stated on news releases and other news materials issued by the Alzheimer’s Association and AAIC 2013. If a reporter or news media outlet breaks an AAIC 2013 news embargo, the Alzheimer’s Association reserves the right to revoke their press access and credentials for the current event and future Alzheimer’s Association conferences and events.
