About the event

The key to defeating MND lies in fostering strong collaboration between leading researchers around the world, and sharing new understanding of the disease as rapidly as possible. This was the MND Association’s rationale behind the creation of the International Symposium on ALS/MND.

Each year, the Symposium attracts over 1,000 delegates, representing the energy and dynamism of the global MND research community. It is the largest medical and scientific conference specific to MND/ALS and is the premier event in the MND research calendar for discussion on the latest advances in research and clinical management.

Despite the many challenges that have arisen from coronavirus, we have worked hard to continue the International Symposium on ALS/MND and we are excited to announce that this year, we will be bringing the 31st International Symposium to you in the virtual world, with preparations well underway.

The Virtual Symposium will be held on the same dates (as originally planned) of Wednesday 9 to Friday 11 December 2020.
