Event description

Description

The University of Sheffield's Dementia Futures 2020 is a one day conference for members of the public who are affected by dementia and for organisations who represent or offer support to persons affected by dementia.

There is a tremendous range of dementia-related research being undertaken at the University of Sheffield. These studies are taking place in disciplines ranging from neurosciences to computer science.

Dementia Futures 2020 is important because it showcases the emerging research of PhD students at the University of Sheffield. This is cutting-edge research which is still in progress.

Our PhD students would like to share with you what they are doing, to communicate this research in an accessible way and to hear what you think about their studies and what difference their findings might make in future. We have sought guidance from the South Yorkshire Dementia Research Advisory Group (SYDEMRAG) about how to make the conference as accessible as possible, and post graduate researchers have been provided with guidance from DEEP - The UK Network of Dementia Voices - on presenting to persons affected by dementia.

**There willl be a Prize awarded for best oral presentation and a Prize awarded for best poster. Members of SYDEMRAG will be responsible for selecting these prizes.

At Dementia Futures 2020, postgraduate research students will present their research in short 12 minute presentations, offering plenty of opportunities for questions and interactive discussion. The focus will be on improving our mutual understanding, sharing academic and lay dementia expertise, facing the challenges of dementia together.
