We have the pleasure to inform you that the 7th International Symposium on Genetic Paediatric Movement Disorders will be held in Barcelona, Spain on February 9-10-11, 2022. Please, save the date!

Our aim is to pursue the collaborative activities among professionals interested in paediatric movement disorders successfully started in the Symposium 2004. As in the previous meetings we intend for the best qualified experts involved in paediatric movement disorders to take part in this Symposium.

We look forward to welcoming you in Barcelona, and hope that this meeting will be a memorable experience for all of you, where you will be able to share ideas, establish interesting contacts and strengthen scientific collaboration, in the enjoyable Mediterranean atmosphere for which Barcelona is famous!

To register and expand the event information you must access its official website (from September 1):
