Join us in Toronto for the world’s largest conference on brain injury!

IBIA World Congress is the largest international gathering of 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. The most recent World Congress was held in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Over 1200 brain injury professionals attended the 2017 World Congress held in New Orleans, Louisiana, and we expect the 2019 Congress to be larger still.

The abstract submission portal is now open!
The deadline to submit and abstract is November 19, 2018.

The aim of the 13th World Congress on Brain Injury 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.

The Congress seeks to provide didactic opportunities for clinicians interested in advancing their knowledge in brain injury science, medicine and care.  The Congress program will feature internationally recognized invited speakers, platform lectures, panels, and workshops, as well as oral presentations and poster sessions selected from the submitted abstracts.

All abstracts will be reviewed and graded by the International Planning Committee.  Abstracts selected for presentation will be published in IBIA’s official journal, Brain Injury, published by Taylor & Francis.

Toronto is a world class city that is culturally diverse with outstanding attractions, superb restaurants and friendly locals. The city is easy to navigate, with a network of beautiful pedestrian pathways and an excellent public transportation system. Against this backdrop, the Congress will be an outstanding forum for networking and building lasting relationships with like-minded colleagues from around the world.

We look forward to seeing you in Toronto in March 2019!
