The symposium at a glance
Talks: Internationally renowned experts will present 17 talks over the course of three days. All speakers present their respective topics in an easily comprehensible way before presenting their complex research results in detail. This format intends to stimulate interdisciplinary discussions and especially enable early career researchers to obtain detailed information on the current state of Alzheimer's research and related areas.
Key Topics: Biophysics of aggregation, structural biology, protein homeostasis, biomarkers, as well as common mechanisms of neurodegeneration.
Poster Session: A poster session takes place on day 2. We welcome abstract submissions on Alzheimer`s topics as well as other neurodegenerative diseases.
Poster prizes: Supported by the ‘Alzheimer Forschung Initiative e.V.’ (AFI), 3 poster prizes will be awarded. 1. Prize: 500 Euro, 2. Prize: 350 Euro, 3. Prize: 250 Euro. A jury will choose winners on site. To increase networking across all career levels and disciplines, nominated speakers will conduct guided poster tours to selected posters for small participants’ groups of the symposium. The poster authors have the opportunity to explain and discuss their results with these groups.
Talks by early career scientists: From the poster abstracts submitted, five will be selected and their authors invited to give a 20-minute lecture in the main programme in addition to their poster presentation.
Public Science Lecture: At 18:15 on 12th of November 2019, Prof. Dr. Hans-Ulrich Demuth, Head of the Department of Drug Design and Target Validation (IZI-MWT) Halle, Biocenter, Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology (IZI) Leipzig, will give a lecture on Alzheimer's disease in German.
Registration: Registration is free of charge. However, the number of participants is limited to 150. Please register before 01 September 2019. Poster abstracts must be submitted not later than 01 August 2019. Further information is available at Registration and Poster Abstract Submission.
