Now in its 9th year, the National Dementia Conference has grown to become the premier national gathering of those researching, implementing policy, advocating and caring for people with dementia.

It comes as no surprise that dementia is now a major talking point amongst Australians as it is expected that there will be nearly 400,000 people living with dementia nationally by 2020.

We have now begun preparing for the conference and are currently calling for expressions of interest to present papers within the congress program. For speaking opportunities and topic suggestions please contact
