Dear Members and Guests,

On behalf of the Executive Committee of the European Huntington´s Disease Network (EHDN), the European Huntington´s Disease Association (EHA), the local organizers and the members of the Program and Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the 8th EHDN Plenary Meeting. This year, the meeting will take place in Barcelona, Spain from 19-21 September 2014 at the Hesperia Tower Hotel.

Once again, the EHDN Plenary Meeting is held in conjunction with the 15th EHA Meeting.
All EHDN plenary sessions will be open to clinicians, scientists, EHA delegates and members of families affected by HD.

There will be a conference fee (200€ maximum) per participant to foster attendance at and appreciation of the high quality sessions of the Plenary Meeting. The fee will be charged during the registration process.

Topics presented during the EHDN Plenary Meeting will contain reports on recent advances in HD research (in both basic and clinical sciences). Aside from participating in the plenary and other parallel sessions, attendees will also have the opportunity to meet experts in the field of HD studies in more informal settings.

Abstracts of the scientific presentation at the EHDN 2014 will be published in a citable format as a special supplement of the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery & Psychiatry (JNNP).

The EHDN 2014 programme has several main sections:
  • Scientific presentations (invited lecturers as well as presentations drawn from submitted abstracts)
  • Lay presentations (scientific topics presented in an easier understandable format)
  • Reports on EHDN Working Group activities
  • Poster presentations
  • Updates on ongoing and upcoming clinical trials in HD
  • EHDN Business Meeting
  • Teaching courses - organised as breakfast seminars

In addition, the programme also includes evening activities, ranging from informal meetings with industry experts to podium talks and a celebration of "10 Years EHDN" on Saturday evening.
On Sunday afternoon, social activities will be offered to get a chance to experience the life and culture of Barcelona. Please visit the page social activities for further information.

We very much look forward to your participation in the EHDN Plenary Meeting 2014 in Barcelona!
