8th International CAA Conference

Welcome to the 8th International Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy Conference. We have crafted a program that features cutting-edge research, translational ideas for clinical trials, and new knowledge on prevention and treatment of manifestations of CAA such as hemorrhagic stroke.

Message from the Chair

Message from the Chair,

On behalf of the Organising and Scientific Committees, we are honoured to welcome you to the 8th International Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy (CAA) Conference, Perth, Western Australia. The past 2 years have brought many challenges to high level research due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with physical distancing and other difficulties including travel restrictions, limited access to research facilities and participants, and an overall struggle to conduct research in these challenging times. We are proud to report that, even with the constraints imposed by the pandemic, this year’s program will present the highest quality research and knowledge on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of CAA and continues to maintain the momentum that started the International CAA Conference about 12 years ago. 

Ongoing high-quality CAA research across the globe has expanded our understanding of the clinical, aetiological, and pathological trajectory of this condition. Current advances involving biofluid markers as well as clinical and radiological features are transforming the perspectives for future research directions in CAA and increasing therapeutic options for clinical trials. Attend the conference to share your own findings, learn more about the latest research and techniques, and gather information to help your clinical practice in treatment and diagnosis. The conference will connect internationally renowned scientists and clinicians from all CAA research pathways – bench to bedside.

The 2022 Conference is the first to be held outside North America and Europe. Perth, Western Australia, was selected as a city known for its close involvement in CAA research and its endless sunshine and pristine beaches. Perth is accessed via Perth International Airport, with direct connections to London, Tokyo, Johannesburg, and Dubai, among many others.


We look forward to seeing you in Perth, Western Australia, on November 3-5, 2022.

call for symposium proposals

The 8th International CAA Conference Organising Committee would like to invite to submit a symposium proposal for its biannual meeting.This meeting, which will be held in a hybrid online/in-person format, comes at a time of great progress towards improved diagnosis and potential disease-modifying treatment of CAA.

The closing date is April 01, 2022 and no submission will be accepted after this date. 


Please think about which areas related to the science or clinical manifestations of cerebrovascular amyloid would be most compelling to discuss. To submit a proposal, please complete the form in the link below by listing the proposed symposium title, a brief introduction, and list of proposed talk titles and speakers. Each symposium should have between 2-4 speakers.  


The CAA Conference scientific organizing committee will review all submissions. Please note that the organizing committee may make changes to the proposed symposia or combine parts of various proposals into a single symposium. 

Thanks very much for making ICAA Perth 2022 the best CAA conference ever.

What to do in Perth

Perth’s superb position on the banks of the Swan River (Derbarl Yerrigan) and nearby hectares of natural bushland in Kings Park make for a city centred on the great outdoors and perfect for sightseeing.

However, there’s more to the west coast capital than great sunshine and a sparkling river. A new cosmopolitan perspective and economic growth has given Perth a cultural confidence which is making its mark on the city skyline and on other aspects of urban life.

Places to Visit in Perth

  • Visit Barrack Square where you can see The Bell Tower.
