We’re giving six people the opportunity to speak at our Conference, and up to 300 delegates the opportunity to exhibit their work at our poster presentation sessions.

Oral presentation abstracts

This year we are giving you the chance to speak at our conference. Submit an abstract by 5 December 2018 for the opportunity to have a 15-minute speaking slot in one of the following Conference sessions:

  • neuroinflammation
  • dementia with Lewy bodies
  • prevention and risk reduction
  • genetics and epigenetics
  • vascular dementia
  • modelling of disease

Oral presentation abstracts follow the same guidelines as the poster abstracts and can be uploaded after registration using the link in your confirmation email. All oral presentation abstracts will be reviewed by the Conference Programme Committee, and applicants informed of the outcome by 18 January 2019. If you are successful your registration fees will be refunded, accommodation will be provided and your travel expenses covered.

Poster abstracts

Abstracts can only be uploaded after you have registered for the Conference and will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.

When uploading abstracts, please adhere to the following guidelines:

Word count: 300 words maximum


  • Abstract title
  • List of authors and affiliations
  • Introduction
  • Materials and methods
  • Results
  • Conclusions

Please do not upload figures.

Posters must be portrait and no bigger than A0.

During the registration you will be asked to indicate whether you wish to present an abstract, however this doesn’t guarantee you a place, which is only confirmed after the abstract has been submitted. The closing date for abstract submission is 9 January 2019, but we anticipate spaces filling up before this date, so please upload your abstract as soon as possible after you have registered to avoid disappointment.

After you have registered you will receive a link to upload your abstract. If you lose your link to upload your abstract, please get in touch with conference@alzheimersresearchuk.org.

Posters also available for viewing during refreshments, lunch breaks and the evening poster session. All posters presented at the Conference will be judged for the £100 David Dawbarn Poster Prize, set up in memory of distinguished neuroscientist Dr David Dawbarn.
