Held biennially, the IBIA World Congress is the largest gathering of international professionals working in the field of brain injury. Delegates are comprised of physicians, psychologists and neuropsychologists, therapists, social workers, nurses, case managers, legal professionals, advocates and all others working in the field of brain injury. Over 1400 multidisciplinary professionals attended the last Congress in Edinburgh in 2012.
The Tenth World Congress on Brain Injury program will feature internationally recognised invited speakers, platform lectures, workshops, short oral presentations and poster sessions. The theme of the congress will be Neurotrauma, Technology, and Neurorehabilitation.
The aim of the Tenth World Congress is to provide an opportunity for establishing collegial relationships with international professionals focused on the care and/or service of persons with acquired brain injury and/or the science of brain injury research. State of the art research will be presented dealing with information spanning from basic science to clinical (coma to community) aspects of brain injury.
Finally, the Congress seeks to provide didactic opportunities for clinicians interested in advancing their knowledge in brain injury science, medicine and care. The official language of the Congress is English, and sessions are open to all delegates registering to attend the event.
