Submitting an Abstract

A Scientific Program Committee (SPC) is organized for each AAIC and includes international experts in a variety of topic areas who are committed to developing the most relevant and innovative content for the conference. The SPC determines the invited program (plenary and symposia sessions) and creates the oral, poster and featured research sessions based on the review scores for the submitted portion of the program.

Why you should share your work: Submitting an abstract for AAIC, the world’s largest and most influential dementia research conference, could help you advance your research and elevate your career.
