Conference

The Annual SMA Conference is an invaluable resource for the entire SMA community.

2018 Annual SMA Conference

Our annual conference is the largest SMA conference in the world. Through the conference, we bring together researchers, healthcare professionals, and families to network, learn, and collaborate. The family conference includes a variety of workshops, keynote sessions with leading researchers, a family-friendly research poster session, and more—plus fun events like our dance party, meet-and-greet, pajama party and movie night, and teen and adult social activities.

The 2018 Annual SMA Conference will be held June 14 - 17 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas. 

Registration is now closed for the 2018 Annual SMA Conference. On-site registration will be available for a higher rate.

SMA Researcher Meeting

The Annual SMA Conference is really two separate events—one for families and one for researchers—that run in parallel, so that families, researchers, and clinicians can interact with and learn from one another. If you are an academic or clinical researcher, use the links to learn more and to register.
