The scientific presentations will take place on 23rd and 24th, 2014, in the Ernest Lluch Auditorium located at the Institute of Health Carlos III (Madrid). The closure will be on October 25th at the Fundación Jiménez Díaz Hospital, with sessions for the families affected by the disease.

Besides the lectures from international experts, young scientists can present their work as short Lectures and Posters. This format is aimed to facilitate extensive discussion of current issues and stimulate new ideas.
