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 the impact of coronavirus, we worked hard to continue the International Symposium on ALS/MND in 2020 due to its importance. The 31st International Symposium was brought into the virtual world on Wednesday 9 to Friday 11 December 2020. We are currently exploring options around organising the 32nd International Symposium that is due to take place in Basel, Switzerland in December 2021, more information will be available soon.
