On behalf of the Scientific Committee of ICAD-ME 2017 Abu Dhabi, thank you for submitting your work for presentation at the Seventh International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders in the Middle East in Abu Dhabi. We have a submission and evaluation process administered by Kenes; please take a moment to read the following simple guidelines.

All abstracts must be submitted by e-mail to aenes@kenes.com. Abstracts that are sent via other e-mail address or fax will not be included in the abstract assessment process by the Scientific Committee.


Abstract submission deadline is 7 February, 2017.


Abstract Submission Guideline


-       All submissions must be made via e-mail by 7 February, 2017. 

-       If an abstract is accepted for presentation, the first author must accept responsibility to present it. 

-       Each participant may only submit one abstract as a presenting author. Further abstracts having the same participant as the “presenting author” will not be taken into consideration by the Scientific Committee. In the case of having more than one abstract submitted by the same presenting author, the Scientific Committee will select one of the abstracts randomly and evaluate only this selected abstract. 

-       The presenting author assumes full responsibility of the content of the abstract and must ensure that all other authors are aware of this content and approve of it before the abstract is submitted. 

-       Presenting author is required to register for the congress in order to have the abstract accepted.
