Welcome message

The Italian Multiple Sclerosis Society (AISM) and Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) are delighted to invite you to Rome, Italy, for the MSIF World Conference, taking place on 24 -28 October 2018.

As you are all aware, the MSIF World Conference is a key event in the global MS calendar as it will bring together the top researchers, leaders from the international MS movement and people with and affected by MS from all corners of the world.

It will be an opportunity to exchange skills, experiences and best practice, to network with people from across the MS community, and to present and discuss the latest innovations in MS research and issues affecting quality of life for people with MS.

The first day of the conference, 24 October, will be dedicated to young people with MS. The workshop will include presentations and interactive discussions led by young people from MS organisations around the world. The aim of the workshop is to provide a culturally and geographically diverse range of perspectives on the role of young people in MS organisations, among other topics.

The following two days of the World Conference, 25-26 October, will offer a dynamic mix of presentations, insightful panel discussions and educational workshops. Inspiring speakers will provide updates on the latest research findings that directly impact the lives of people with MS and MS organisations’ representatives will share innovative project and programme initiatives being carried out around the world.

MSIF’s Global Networking Meetings will then take place from 27-28 October.

This conference, with your valuable participation, represents another milestone towards our common goal of improving the quality of life of people affected by MS.

The 2018 MSIF World Conference will be hosted by the Italian MS Society (AISM) with the support of MSIF. Together we look forward to welcoming you to Rome for what promises to be a stimulating few days where you will have the opportunity to connect to other MS organisations and grow your network of friends and colleagues across the global MS movement.

We hope that you will find the conference and your stay in Rome both valuable and enjoyable.

Welcome to Rome!
