It is with great pleasure we, Dementia 2018 would like to express by personal gratitude to invite you to the “12th World Congress on Dementia and Alzheimer Rehabilitation” scheduled during November 27-29, 2018 at Athens, Greece.
Dementia Meetings 2018 anticipates more than 500 participants around the globe to experience thought provoking Keynote lectures, oral, video & poster presentations. This year Dementia conference will offer ample opportunities for all stakeholders working on Dementia and Alzheimer and its rehabilitation to expose their research work.
Within this splendid setting, we plan to deliver a conference that will exceed your expectations. Our Dementia conference aims to make people with dementia feel safe and to create a familiar environment for them.
This year in Dementia 2018 conference, we hope that you will seize the opportunity to rekindle on-going connections and spark new ones with your colleagues from around the globe.
The Conference will be organized around the theme “Innovative Approaches to Support: Dementia & Alzheimer Rehabilitation”.
Track 1: Dementia
Dementia is not a specific disease. It's an overall term that describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person's ability to perform everyday activities. Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, which occurs after a stroke, is the second most common dementia type.

Track 2: Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80% of dementia cases. Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80% of dementia cases. Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging.

Track 7: Amyloid Protein in Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Alzheimer's disease (AD), the leading cause of dementia worldwide, is characterized by the accumulation of the β-amyloid peptide (Aβ) within the brain along with hyper phosphorylated and cleaved forms of the microtubule-associated protein tau.
Track 7-1Amyloid Imaging
Track 7-3Amyloid Immunotherapy
Track 8: Amyloid Imaging in Dementia
The AIT(Amyloid Imaging Task Force) concluded that amyloid imaging could potentially be helpful in the diagnosis of people with cognitive impairment when considered along with other clinical information, and when performed according to standardized protocols by trained staff.
Track 9: Neurodegenerative Diseases
Degenerative nerve diseases affect many of your body's activities, such as balance, movement, talking, breathing, and heart function. Sometimes the cause is a medical condition such as alcoholism, a tumour, or a stroke. Other causes may include toxins, chemicals, and viruses. Sometimes the cause is not known.

Track 10: Parkinson’s disease with Dementia
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a type of movement disorder. It happens when nerve cells in the brain don't produce enough of a brain chemical called dopamine. Sometimes it is genetic, but most cases do not seem to run in families. Exposure to chemicals in the environment might play a role. Parkinson’s disease usually begins around age 60, but it can start earlier. It is more common in men than in women.

Early discovery and exact analysis are critical, as vascular dementia is at any rate halfway preventable .Ischemic changes in the cerebrum are irreversible, however the patient with vascular dementia can exhibit times of solidness or even gentle change. Since stroke is a basic piece of vascular dementia, the objective is to forestall new strokes. This is endeavoured through decrease of stroke chance components, for example, hypertension, high blood lipid levels, atrial fibrillation, or diabetes mellitus.

Novel therapeutics is a standout amongst the most energizing uses of data preparing frameworks is in diagnostics and treatment. This is not astonishing, given that illness analysis is in its center a data handling undertaking that finishes with a choice. In numerous infections, the conclusion can be performed in singular cells.
We are used to thinking of rehabilitation in terms of physical rehabilitation following injury, but it is equally relevant for people with cognitive, rather than physical, impairments. This includes people whose impairments result from long-term, progressive neurodegenerative conditions. In cognitive rehabilitation, these principles are applied to enable people with dementia to maintain or optimize functioning.

Athens is the capital of Greece. It was also known as the heart of Ancient Greece, It has a powerful civilization and empire. The city is still dominated by 5th-century BC landmarks, including the Acropolis, a hilltop citadel topped with ancient buildings like the colonnaded Parthenon temple. The Acropolis Museum, along with the National Archaeological Museum, preserves sculptures, vases, jewellery and more from Ancient Greece.
Athens has been a destination for travellers since antiquity. Over the past decade, the city's infrastructure and social amenities have improved, in part because of its successful bid to stage the 2004 Olympic Games. The Greek Government, aided by the EU, has funded major infrastructure projects such as the state-of-the-art Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, the expansion of the Athens Metro system, and the new Attica Odes Motorway.
Athens was voted as the third best European city to visit in 2015 by European Best Destination. More than 240,000 people voted.
