The 2020 International Dementia Conference Call for Papers is now open

Are we able to care in an age of outrage? Will fear or collaboration drive the culture and future of aged care? These are central considerations of our International Dementia Conference taking place on 11-12th June 2020.

For 25 years The Dementia Centre has considered what it takes to navigate the many ways we approach support and care for people with dementia, their families and carers.

Drawing on local and international expertise, with the voices of those living with dementia, join us to discuss and debate how we can shape the future ahead.

We invite submissions for paper and poster presentations for our 2020 International Dementia Conference - Care in the Age of Outrage

We welcome abstracts from people living with dementia, carers and family members who have unique perspectives to share. We also encourage abstracts from people working in practice and innovation in the delivery of dementia-specific services as well as scientific, clinical and psychosocial research.

Abstract presentation formats

Oral Presentations: A 2-minute video clip is requested to be uploaded as part of your submission, containing a brief introduction to the presenter and the abstract. This submission platform will be in addition to a written text.

ePosters: This is an opportunity to present your work in a presentation format. All selected submissions will then be requested in electronic pdf, or an interactive PowerPoint slide. Further information will be provided to those selected.
