AAIC offers unparalleled exposure for your research across the field. Submit your abstract or session proposal for the opportunity to feature your work among thousands of abstracts submitted on the latest dementia research. Highlight your work in front of dementia researchers from around the globe and bring key opinion leaders together to impact the future of the field. Opportunities to present in person and online will be available.
Individual abstract submissions provide an opportunity for presenting authors to share and discuss designs, data and analyses with AAIC attendees. The following abstract types are eligible for submission to AAIC:
“Published” refers to publication in a journal as a full article or conference abstract, or publication on a preprint server, while “Presented” refers to presentation at a regional, national or international conference. If your abstract is currently under review, please select the category your abstract meets at the time of submission then email email@example.com to change category upon publication.
Individual abstracts can be submitted for consideration for an oral and/or a poster presentation, with original, update, and encore abstracts all eligible for oral or poster presentations. Abstracts first undergo peer review that considers the quality of and interest in the abstract. Then, informed by the peer review scores, the Scientific Program Committee (SPC) selects certain abstracts for oral presentations.
The presenting author of an abstract may attend either in-person or virtually for either oral or poster presentations.
It is also possible to organize and submit a session proposal and help shape the program at AAIC 2024.
Featured Research Sessions (FRS) debut and discuss innovative and impactful research findings, drawing together multiple studies that share a common focus.
Perspectives Sessions provide both an expert review of recent advances and propose a road-map for the future, incorporating multiple viewpoints to stimulate original discussion and debate. Perspectives Sessions should interest and engage the core audience of the field being discussed, and also offer an entryway for attendees from other fields. Perspectives Sessions can be invited by the Scientific Program Committee or submitted as an entire session.
For both Featured Research and Perspectives Sessions, each chair and presenter may attend either in-person or virtually, with any combination of in-person and virtual attendance permitted. Unless the topic demands otherwise, the session should be diverse in terms of the demographics of presenters.
Abstracts submitted to AAIC can also be submitted to the Alzheimer’s Imaging Consortium (AIC) or the Technology and Dementia preconferences as part of the submission process. Please note, the AIC and the Technology and Dementia preconferences take place in-person only and require an additional registration fee to AAIC.
Please submit the abstract to AAIC, and select the appropriate answer to the question "Should this abstract also be submitted to a pre-conference?" during the submission process. The abstract will be considered for both AAIC and the selected preconference.
Selection of a theme, topic and subtopic for the abstract allows submitters to "self-identify" the area in which the abstract best fits. This identification is the first step in sorting abstracts for the Scientific Program Committee, who will take this identification into consideration and group related abstracts with similar topics into the same session. Selection of a primary theme, topic and subtopic is required.
New for AAIC 2024: Submit a case study to share your findings with the dementia research and care community. Case studies present findings on a single individual and provide scientific considerations based on the case for the audience. They may describe a rare or unique clinical presentation, novel empirically-based course of treatment or treatment response, or instance when the outcome of a case did or did not fit with the current research literature.
