6th World Parkinson Congress

Conference details: 4 – 7 July 2023 – Barcelona, Spain

World Parkinson Congress 2023

Registration is now open for the Sixth World Parkinson Congress, also known as the WPC 2023. This event will unite the global Parkinson’s community 4 – 7 July 2023 in Barcelona, Spain. The four-day long programme will offer a unique experience for researchers, clinicians, rehabilitation professionals, people with Parkinson’s, care partners, and others. Unlike any other Parkinson’s disease (PD) meeting it brings the whole PD community together under one roof for four days. Under the leadership of WPC President, Dr. Marie-Françoise Chesselet and WPC Vice President, Dr. Roger Barker more than 100 committee members and 22 Ambassadors from 25 countries have the WPC 2023 take shape as the most comprehensive meeting on PD in 2023. 

The World Parkinson Congress programme embraces a range of presentations from large hall plenary talks to small intimate roundtable discussions and everything in between. The aim has been to profile and highlight the latest and most germane issues in Parkinson’s today.  Talks on disease progression, PD subtypes, gene and cellular therapy will run alongside sessions on neuroprotection, clinical trials, rehab therapies, and best care delivery models. The provisional programme can be viewed at www.WPC2023.org/scientificprogram.  

Researchers are invited to submit late breaking abstracts for the lively and engaging Poster space in the exhibit hall. Poster presenters are considered for Hot Topics presentations, Poster tours and are offered many opportunities to share their work and get feedback from a diverse community.

Submissions for late breaking abstracts will be accepted from 20 March to 02 April 2023. https://wpc2023.org/callabstract
