New in 2017
We implemented significant changes to the 2016 Annual Meeting, and we're doing it again in 2017 with a host of robust new offerings.
Neuroscience in the Clinic Sessions
These new sessions will feature a mix of scientists and clinicians actively engaged in lively case discussions to integrate scientific research with clinical application. A moderator will introduce and provide background on a case and invited speaker will frame the case in scientific and clinical context. Thematic abstract presentations will provide additional framework. Session will conclude with panel discussion.
Expanded Experiential Learning Areas
Get ready to experience interactive, and totally flexible, new ways of exploring, engaging, and learning throughout each day of the Annual Meeting. Experiential learning areas will offer a variety of real-world experiences designed to engage you intellectually, emotionally, and socially while serving up fresh ideas to help you personally and professionally.
Exhibit Hall Opening Lunch
A special opening lunch on Sunday, April 23, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., will give you a chance to socialize with fellow attendees and preview the latest products and services available in the neurologic industry.
Added Leadership University Offerings
Explore how to become an emerging female leader in your organization or learn how to lead by example in promoting personal well-being and resiliency with new course offerings from the AAN's suite of Leadership University courses.
"Best of" Science Sessions
Platform sessions that will bring together the top four rated abstracts by our reviewers and lead into the daily Plenary Sessions.
New Scientific Platform Session Format
Shorter platform presentations allow for the distillation of essential data. The session will conclude with a discussant bringing one or more of the abstracts into context focusing on concepts, ideas, issues, and controversies.
Poster Session Neighborhoods
We've made the posters easier to navigate by clustering topic-related posters into “neighborhoods” designed to enhance your discussions with colleagues.
Office of the Future
Located inside the Exhibit Hall, this exciting new area will let you experience how an office of the future will look and operate. Reimagine your exam room with the latest ergonomic equipment and cutting-edge technology that engages your patient and encourages shared decision-making, from touch-screen learning to lighting, and everything in-between!
Bring your unique and most challenging cases in specific topic areas to any one of this year's Curbside Consults offered in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. These sessions offer a casual, walk-up opportunity to discuss your most demanding clinical and academic cases with experts in those areas. Even if you don't have a case to discuss, Annual Meeting attendees are encouraged to stop by to listen and learn from other areas.
