The Alzheimer's Imaging Consortium (AIC), a preconference to the Alzheimer's Association International Conference® (AAIC®), will focus on the clinical application and methodological development of neuroimaging (MRI, PET, SPECT, CT and others) to Alzheimer's disease, other dementias and normal brain aging. The program consists of invited speakers, as well as oral and poster presentations from submitted abstracts.
This preconference was organized by the ISTAART Neuroimaging PIA.
An agenda will be posted closer to the start of AAIC.
All clinicians involved in the care or research of individuals with memory or other cognitive complaints, including but not limited to neurologists, psychiatrists, radiologists, geriatricians, neuropsychologists, physicians and nurses; researchers, industry and regulatory agency stakeholders; and others involved in the use of imaging techniques in the study of Alzheimer’s disease, other dementias and normal aging.
The abstract submission process has closed.
AIC is a preconference to AAIC 2019. Preconferences come with separate registration fees in addition to AAIC full conference registration. Preconferences can also be purchased as stand-alone events. Registration for this preconference opened in February.
A limited number of fellowships, in the form of complimentary AIC registration, are available for early career scientists who are the presenting authors on an accepted abstract. Applications are accepted during the main abstract submission process for AIC, which has closed.
