Session Types
All sessions are open to all delegates.


PRE-CONGRESS COURSES
:  
To take place on Tuesday, June 4, we offer distinct day long courses that allow delegates to start the congress with an overview in their area of interest.  

 

HOT TOPICS:  Each morning four authors selected from the most highly scored abstracts will be invited to present to the broader audience. Presentations will be given orally in the categories of: basic science, clinical science, clinical therapeutics, and complementary care. Presenters are generally up and coming researchers and clinicians who are introducing exciting cutting edge work that adds great value to the community. 

 

PLENARY SESSIONS:  Designed to bring together all Congress attendees each morning, plenary sessions will offer presentations on specific topics to highlight the daily themes. These will be held in a large auditorium each morning, starting just after the Hot Topics presentations. Plenaries will offer very limited questions and answer periods, but experts will be available in workshops or round tables later each day to continue discussing the topics in more detail.

 

PARALLEL SESSIONS:  Designed to offer in-depth sessions focused on specific cutting-edge research in the field of Parkinson's. These sessions will appeal to those who want to understand the basic and clinical science underlying the research conducted to better understand the many facets of Parkinson's disease. These will be set in larger lecture halls of up to 500 delegates and will offer question and answer periods but they will be less interactive than the workshops.

 

WORKSHOPS:  Designed for smaller groups of attendees ranging from 100-200 people. Speakers will give an overview of the assigned topic then work together presenting case studies or research that can highlight the topic in ways that are educational, unique and easy to digest. These sessions are designed to allow for more discourse and longer question and answer periods for the participants.

 

ROUNDTABLE SESSIONS:  These specially designed sessions allow for delegates to sit down with an expert on a wide range of fields in a very small, intimate group, to get to the nitty-gritty with questions about the topics. Experts will give a shot oral overview of the predetermined topic and will then take take questions from the participants.

Seats are filled on a first-come, first served basis. Each Roundtable session can take up to 11 participants.  We strongly encourage those who are interested to arrive early.


SPECIAL LECTURESAs the title says, these special sessions are designed to highlight one topic each day, including the WPC James Parkinson Lecture, the Living with Parkinson's sessions, and our special guest talk one day by an internationally recognized leader in the Parkinson's space.


DAILY WRAP-UP
A dynamic and robust panel of experts who will highlight key learnings each day. This is a great way to catch some key topics you missed while attending other sessions and to hear what these leaders are taking away from the sessions they participated in.
