Following the success of our previous conferences in Xiamen in 2009, Shanghai in 2011 and Cannes in 2013, our most recent conference held in Seoul, 2016 gathered 445 attendants from total of 21 countries. The fifth conference ICMN2018 will bring together world-renowned experts to discuss the current state of research to uncover the molecular mechanisms underlying devastating neurodegenerative diseases and promote discussion about new treatment strategies. The conference theme Overlapping Pathologies and Common Mechanisms should promote discussions across disease entities and further our understanding of pathological processes common or specific to neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia.

We have recruited top scientists from around the world as our invited speakers (see tentative list of confirmed speakers (March 14, 2017) and program at the end of this letter) and developed a comprehensive program containing eight scientific sessions complemented with two sessions of short talks to be selected from submitted abstracts, two poster sessions and two panel discussion sessions. The participation of senior and young investigators will ensure that the meeting will provide a platform for networking to identify collaborative opportunities. Morning and afternoon coffees, lunch, and refreshments during the two poster sessions will be included in the conference registration fees for the participants.

The significance of ICMN2018 has recently been acknowledged by the City of Stockholm and the Stockholm County Council who will host up to 350 ICMN2018 guests at an official reception in Stockholm City Hall during one of evenings of the conference. We estimate participation of approximately 350-400 delegates from all over the world and believe that ICMN2018 will draw significant national and international media coverage.    

We are currently offering sponsorship opportunities that are categorized into four levels of sponsorship; platinum, gold, silver and regular sponsorships.

We invite your organization to become a sponsor of the ICMN2018 conference. If interested, please contact me to discuss about further steps and include relevant information in particular the level of sponsorship. Thank you for your time and consideration.
