  • Author(s): person or persons who wrote the abstract


It is important to ADI that presenters use appropriate language and we would encourage all those submitting an abstract to look at the language guidelines created by Dementia Australia in collaboration with people living with dementia. They are to be used when writing your abstract and presenting at ADI conferences, as well as other conferences.  It is important that you as presenters follow these guidelines in your abstract submissions, and if successful, in your oral or poster presentations.

The following points highlight preferred terms next to the terms we advise submitters not to use:

  • Dementia/a form or type of dementia/symptoms of dementia – not Dementing illness, Senile dementia
  • Person living with dementia, diagnosed with dementia – not Sufferer, Victim, Demented person, Patient (unless in a specific medical context)
  • Younger onset dementia – not Early onset dementia

All abstracts must be written in English using the Roman alphabet.

Publication policy

All abstracts accepted for presentation (oral or poster) will be published in the official abstract book of the conference.
