27th Annual Meeting of the Huntington Study Group


October 29-31, 2020

The Huntington Study Group is taking the early and proactive step of moving this year’s annual meeting, HSG 2020: HD IN FOCUS, to a virtual experience during October 29-31, 2020. While we will not gather together this year in-person, we have developed an interesting, novel, and innovative program that will be brought to you anywhere you are located.

We will hold a highly engaging and interactive virtual online meeting. HSG 2020 will still provide many of the same experiences you are used to — but from the safety and comfort of your home or office which includes opportunities to network and interactive poster sessions, and much more, such as:

INTERACTIVE SESSIONS – plenary presentations, panel discussions, with live Q&A sessions sharing the latest in research and treatments.

● An exciting VIRTUAL FAMILY DAY symposium for HD families to hear from HD experts and community advocates.


● Virtual NETWORKING LOUNGES to meet up with, engage and collaborate with colleagues, friends, and experts.

● A simulated EXHIBIT HALL to engage with representatives from industry and advocacy.

● An interactive POSTER PAVILION to browse accepted research abstract posters, and engage with poster presenters at scheduled times.

Venue & Registration

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for information regarding the online platform, registration information, and call for abstracts.

Abstracts and Virtual Poster Sessions

Attendees will “experience” a virtual event that mimics a similar live event. Abstract posters will be presented in a dedicated virtual exhibition hall. Once in the Poster exhibition hall, attendees will see the titles and a thumbnail image for each selected abstract. When an attendee navigates to a specific poster, they will be presented with an interface that can include a short introductory video, a headshot image of the presenter, a PDF to view the detailed poster, and a Q&A chat box to interact with the poster presenter.

Key Abstract Dates:

– Regular Abstract Submission Opens: May 28, 2020
– Regular Abstract Submission Closes: June 30, 2020
– Regular Abstract Selection Notification: August 31, 2020
– Late-breaking Abstract Submission: September 9-16, 2020*

*Late-Breaking Abstract Submission period will take place after key print deadlines, and therefore cannot be included in the publication of HSG 2020 Abstracts in Neurotherapeutics®. Poster presenters will still be welcome.
