Preconference Events and Continuing Education

Alzheimer’s Imaging Consortium (AIC) Preconference

This preconference, held on Saturday, July 18 from 8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., focuses on the clinical applications and methodological development of neuroimaging (MRI, PET, SPECT, CT etc.) to Alzheimer's disease, other dementias and normal brain aging. Admission to the Alzheimer's Imaging Consortium Preconference is not included with the AAIC Full Conference fee and must be purchased separately.

Technology and Dementia

This preconference, held on Saturday, July 18 from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., convenes researchers in the technological field working to improve the standard of living for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Technology and Dementia is not included with the AAIC Full Conference fee and must be purchased separately.

Educational Workshop: Basic Neuropathology Of Age-Associated Neurogenerative Diseases

This workshop is held on Friday, July 17 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and will cover fundamental neuropathological features of age-associated neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Lewy body disease. Admission to this workshop is not included with the AAIC Full Conference fee and must be purchased separately during the registration process.

Educational Workshop: Basic Neuroimaging in Dementia

This workshop is held on Friday, July 17 from 1 – 5 p.m. The in vivo imaging biomarkers field for Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders is rapidly expanding. The purpose of this multimodal neuroimaging workshop is to provide research investigators, clinicians, residents, fellows, graduate and postgraduate students with an in-depth understanding of the fundamental principles, inherent limitations and clinical and research applications of the most prominent neuroimaging modalities in the dementia field – structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), metabolic fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron imaging tomography (PET), amyloid and tau PET imaging. Together these four techniques comprehensively probe the molecular, cellular and system level neurodegenerative changes in the brain.

Lectures will be followed by interactive sessions to ensure that participants gain in depth understanding of some of the commonly used interpretive clinical and/or research applications for each methodology. Admission to this workshop is not included with the AAIC Full Conference fee and must be purchased separately during the registration process. Participants in this workshop may also wish to consider registering for the morning workshop Animal Models in Dementia and Neurodegeneration.

Educational Workshop: Animal Models in Dementia and Neurodegeneration

This workshop is held on Friday, July 17 from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. and will provide an overview of the various animal models of dementia (including Alzheimer's) and neurodegeneration, along with practical advice for their experimental use. Participants in this workshop may also wish to consider registering for the afternoon workshop Basic Neuroimaging in Dementia.

Registries Workshop

This interactive session held on Saturday, July 18 from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. will bring together experts from academia, government, the non-profit sector, and industry to discuss challenges and opportunities related to registries as research and recruitment tools for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. The goals are to provide a forum for the active exchange of information about current programs and to promote innovations and collaborative efforts. Programmed presentations will focus on large web-based registries, local registries, and industry involvement.

If you have information you would like to share during the session, please fill out this form to indicate your interest. (Note: Filling out the linked form does NOT register your attendance.
