The theme for next year’s ADRF2022 is: Early Diagnosis – Effective Treatment.

The 2022 conference will take place in a fully virtual environment, offering virtual attendance and presentation options. Submitting speakers are asked to keep in mind that, should your submission be accepted into the program, you may be asked to present virtually and/or attend a live Q & A if required.

Submit an abstract for the chance to share your theories and discoveries with Australia’s top dementia scientists and researchers. Abstracts may be submitted for an oral, rapid or poster presentation. Oral and rapid presentations will also be considered for poster presentations.

Receive your copy of the ADRF2022 Abstracts Submission Guide that features a step-by-step guide to successful abstract submissions; an overview of logistics; and expert tips from the ADRF Scientific Program Committee.
