International Congress on Frontotemporal Dementias 2022
After Sydney, Munich and Vancouver, this biennial congress of the international Society of FTD will be held in France, a country very much involved in this group of diseases, in November 2022.
Frontotemporal dementia is the second most common cause of early onset dementia and a challenging differential diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease whatever the age.
Behavioural changes, language and motor disorders are the main symptoms, which may have a devastating impact on families, but an underestimated number manifest as memory disorders long indistinguishable from Alzheimer's disease.
Several pathological subtypes underlie the disease, and genetics plays an important role, which contributes to the devastating impact of the disease on the families, but opens up therapeutic perspectives. Considerable progress has been made over the last 20 years in understanding the molecular basis of FTD and in developing therapeutic approaches.
This congress is organised by the Centre d'excellences des maladies neurodégénératives (CoEN) of Lille and Paris.
Call for abstract:
Abstracts need to be submitted by the deadline of June 1st 2022 (23:59, WET).

Abstracts will be evaluated by the Local Organising Committee and the Scientific Program Committee.
Abstracts must be allocated to a specific category. Please select the category from the list below that best matches the focus of your study. This will be used to organise the abstracts for the purpose of review and presentation. However, the reviewers may assign the abstract to a different category that they feel is more appropriate:
- Language and cognition
- Clinical trials and management
- Basic science, cellular and molecular biology
The Pré-conference symposium will be held in Paris (at the Institut du cerveau et de la moelle épinière) on Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022.
The ISFTD Congress in Lille from November 3 to 5, 2022.
