Dementias 2018 
Lessons that have been learned from the last 20 years and future prospects in diagnosis and treatment of dementia

8th & 9th February 2018
Cavendish Conference Centre, London


Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to Dementias 2018 – our 20th Anniversary conference. For this special occasion, most of our speakers will be taking a look at likely future developments in our field, or a backward look at what from the recent past now seems to be mainstream practice or current thinking. 

We have several rather special keynote speakers, including Professor Ken Shulman of Toronto, who was our keynote speaker at our 10th conference and who is a popular old friend of this series of conferences. 

Whether you have been before, perhaps several times, or whether you will be a new attendee, we are confident that this 20th conference will be informative, interactive and enjoyable. This has certainly been our aim in choosing the speakers and topics.

We look forward to seeing you in London in 2018!

Professor Tom Arie, CBE & Professor Alistair Burns, CBE
