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.

34th International Symposium on ALS/MND

We are excited to be returning to an in-person event for the 34th International Symposium on ALS/MND in Basel, Switzerland. One of the advantages of holding the Symposium online is the ability for those unable to attend in person (particularly people living with ALS/MND) to participate in the event. We are keen to continue this aspect of inclusivity and aim to make this year's event accessible to a wider audience by live-streaming a select number of sessions. We'll be providing more information about this in due course.
