On behalf of the International Association of Parkinsonism and Related Disorders, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the XX World Congress on Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders taking place during the second week of December 2013 in Geneva, Switzerland.
As the motto for this World Congress is “Integration by Translation”, this Congress will deal in a most translational way with most recent research and updates on the etiology, pathogenesis, potential diagnostic markers and treatment modalities of Parkinson’s disease and Related Disorders, bringing together a large faculty of world-wide renowned, distinguished scientists, clinicians and allied health experts with a wide range of expertise in this field. One day of its program will be dedicated to Parkinson’ s disease, others to cerebellar disorders, dystonia, and hyperkinetic conditions.
The Scientific Program will be composed of Plenary Lectures, Parallel Sessions, Forum Discussions, Video Supported Sessions, Satellite Symposia, and both oral and poster Platform Presentations. There will also be an extensive educational program, dealing with the various aspects of the whole variety of neurological movement disorders.
The Congress will be held this time in Geneva, indeed, in the heart of Switzerland where translation is essential for integration on a daily base…
We hope that you will take enough time to enjoy the attractions of this metropolis as part of your Congress experience, and maybe also the rest of Switzerland.
Erik Ch. Wolters, Chairman
