Call for ePosters for the 2018 International Dementia Conference


The deadline for oral presentations has now closed, but the good news is there’s still the chance to make your voice heard in June with an ePoster presentation.

‘Mission Impossible? Truth and Lies in the Age of Choice’ brings together like-minded individuals from all corners of the world who have a shared goal—to improve the lives and hopes of people living with dementia and those who care for them.

This year’s conference is driven by the thought-provoking theme of decision making and choice in dementia. We live in an age of option, we have choices presented to us in myriad forms every day—but are they really choices? The decisions we make, and more importantly those that others make for us, can constrict us in ways that may not be immediately visible.

We are excited to open up this discussion in the context of community, residential and hospital specialist care. ‘Mission Impossible’ challenges us to take a step back and examine the realities of choice under the microscope, to discuss and debate what it truly means for older people and those living dementia.

Is it you we're looking for?

We’re inviting ePoster submissions from a broad spectrum of disciplines. From those working in scientific, clinical and psychosocial research, to studies surrounding practice and innovation in dementia-specific services, the bigger range of perspectives the better.

We also warmly welcome proposals from people living with dementia and carers who will have unique insights to share.  If you would like any support with a submission please don’t hesitate to contact our helpful team who will be happy to assist.

Up to five submissions will be selected on their merit, and will then be requested in PDF form or as an interactive PowerPoint slide—these will be displayed in a designated exhibition space at the conference. If you are selected you will also have the opportunity to present your thoughts during a five-minute Q & A session in one of the lunch breaks.

We’re looking forward to receiving your contributions. Proposed topics and themes can be found here.
