The VI edition of the International Congress on Innovation and Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIIIEN) will held on September 19-21, 2018 in Santiago de Compostela, Spain at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Santiago. This key meeting on Neurodegenerative Diseases is annually organized by the Center of Research in Neurological Diseases (CIEN) Foundation and the Center for Networked Biomedical Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIBERNED) with the support of the Queen Sofia Foundation.

This meeting is celebrated every year since 2013, coinciding with the World Alzheimer´s Day (September, 21st) and focuses on main research advances in neurodegenerative disorders, particularly Alzheimer´s, Parkinson´s and Huntington´s diseases.
The main objective of CIIIEN is providing a forum to discuss a range of areas of interest related to basic, clinical and translational aspects of the research on the neurodegenerative diseases among the scientific community. More than 400 researchers from several countries will attend this International Congress.

We look forward to welcoming you in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
