Help to Identify Topics and Speakers for
the 5th World Parkinson Congress
Kyoto, Japan ~ June 4-7, 2019


As we prepare for the 5th World Parkinson Congress, we want to know what type of sessions you would like to see.

The WPC program is always designed BY the community FOR the community. So, in this survey you will have the opportunity to suggest a session title, speaker(s), and learning objectives. Please note that while your suggestions will be reviewed and weighed seriously during the program design process, there is no guarantee that it will be used as you have outlined it. For example, the Program Committee may like your topic, but feel other speakers are more suitable, or they may like your speaker suggestion, but want to change the topic. As you can imagine, the process is complex, but your input is paramount to the success of designing a great program. Thank you for taking the time to help us.

Ideas may be typed directly into our system  OR  uploaded in a word document

How to suggest a session:

  1. Choose a session title: This can be anything related to Parkinson's disease
  2. Identify the category: Basic Science, Clinical Science, or Comprehensive Care
  3. Choose a session level: Crosstalk (Minimal or no scientific background required), Moderate-level scientific session, High-level scientific session.
  4. Draft three learning objectives. (i.e.Explain how clinical decision to recommend DBS are made.)
  5. Suggest speakers:  You can identify specific individuals or even just the types of specialists you would like to hear. For example, if your topic was L-dopa delivery, you may want a nutritionist, and a neurologist on your panel. Please note that we look for diversity in faculty make-up, including but not limited to: gender, geographic, and seniority status.

We look forward to seeing what you come up with!
