PRELIMINARY PROGRAM

The 1st Workshop on Research Definitions for Reserve and Resilience in Cognitive Aging and Dementia has a unique format designed to  facilitate discussion and reach consensus on operational definitions and research guidelines for the many terms used to capture aspects of reserve and resilience.

The Workshop will not feature research talks or poster presentations. Rather, each session will be composed of a multi-disciplinary panel. Each panel member will briefly present the operational definitions that they use for their chosen concepts and provide an example from their research. This will be followed by intensive discussion. Ample time will be given for all attendees to participate in this process.

All attendees will participate in a breakout group on the second day of the workshop. The breakout groups will identify areas of consensus and issues to be resolved. These discussions will lead to formation of workgroups, which will engage in long-term discussions of key issues and guide the agenda for the 2nd annual Workshop.
