Format of the meeting

As in previous years, each session will comprise at theme.  Each theme will have 2 discussants – one from industry and one from academia.  Discussants will briefly outline the main points from their perspective, and the topic will then be open for a moderated  audience discussion.

Based on our previous meeting, we anticipate a series of  lively, active and interesting discussions,  focussing on all of the major “hot topics” in ALS clinical research.


As attendance is limited to 150 people it is important to book early.   Please note that unless otherwise agreed, we can only guarantee places for  2 attendees from each organisation.


Cancellation is possible up to six weeks before the meeting. Please note that fees will not be reimbursed if cancellation is after Jan 10 2024. Change of name is possible at all time and free of charge.
