Dear Colleague,

Greetings from the World Federation of Neurology Speciality Group on Aphasia, Dementia and Cognitive Disorders. It is indeed a privilege to be writing to all researchers in the field of cognitive disorders to invite you to a meeting has been pivotal in pioneering new and interesting discussions in cognitive and behavioural neurology in the last few decades.

We are happy to write to you to let you know that the 2024 Biennial meeting of the WFN Speciality Group on aphasia and cognitive disorders group will be held in Nara, Japan, April 4th to 7th 2024. We invite members as well as non-members to attend. Researchers, both senior and early career in the field related to cognitive disorders, dementia and aphasia are heartily welcomed to join us.

We look forward to meeting in-person and re-connecting with old and new friends and colleagues, especially after the isolation and loss faced globally due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As you are aware, one of the foremost concerns for us is to make WFN SG ADCD a truly international world-wide group of cognitive neurologists, psychologists, speech pathologists, brain imaging experts and researchers from allied disciplines. This meeting has travelled from Europe to Istanbul, Hyderabad, Hong Kong and back to its origins in Lake Como in Italy. Therefore, having the next meeting in the Far East is exciting.
