One of the most interesting aspects of the XXV World Congress on Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders is the diversity of approaches presented. This encourages the discussion of original solutions to a wide range of problems, both in research and clinical management. Needless to say, networking between neurologists working in different countries is vital for such an exchange to take place. Presentations are geared to various skill levels so that participants from a variety of backgrounds will have the chance to enrich their knowledge and enjoy the networking opportunities.

Delegates will find that there is an exciting range of subjects in plenary sessions, parallel tracks, skills workshops and poster sessions. The emphasis is on discussion and on a positive critical attitude. Language difficulties and hierarchical divisions may have hindered scientific discussion in other meetings, but IAPRD Congresses have managed to rise above both barriers.

We now look forward to the involvement of all participants, be it in open forums during the sessions, joining Meet the Professor session or on a more personal “one to one” level.
