Call for Abstracts: 13th International Congress on Neuromuscular Diseases
July 5-10, 2014 Nice, France
Deadline: 01 February 2014
The International Congress on Neuromuscular Diseases is the regular meeting of the Research Group on Neuromuscular Diseases-World Federation of Neurology (RGNMD-WFN). The first one was organized more than 40 years ago, in 1969, in Milan – Italy and the second one, in 1971, in Perth - Australia. It was then firmly established as the most important forum by the global neuromuscular community, hosted on a 4-year event basis by several medical and research expert groups all around the world: North America, Australia, Japan, Turkey and Europe. The Organizing Committee of the ICNMD XIII is proud to have been selected by the Executive Committee of the RGNMD-WFN to manage the 2014 version and wishes to express its thanks for this commitment.
The ICNMD congress is a unique opportunity to share scientific advances in peripheral neurology by those involved in the fields of improving care, understanding disease pathogenesis, and developing innovative treatments in muscle, neuromuscular junction, peripheral neuropathies and motor neuron diseases. This is an optimal meeting place for upgrading knowledge for young as well as established physicians and researchers, and for stimulating discussions and exchanges of views and ideas with colleagues in the focused areas. The goal of the plenary session program is to attract speakers of the highest international calibre who will give engaging and thought-provoking presentations on a range of up to date topics and moves in advanced concepts. We are grateful to those who have accepted invitations to organize and peak in the thematic workshop sessions which will be focused on the most up to date works in progress. A large place will be dedicated to the selected submitted abstracts on regular poster sessions but also with specific highlighting through poster flash sessions in which selected authors will have the chance of a 3-slides oral presentation or through highlight poster sessions summarizing the most important late breaking news brought by attendees. Moreover, attendees will have the opportunity to register for teaching courses with lessons from experts and for breakfast seminars conducted by brilliant young scientists or MDs on recent concepts.
