CONGRESS OVERVIEW

Held biennially, the International Brain Injury Association’s World Congress on Brain Injury is the largest gathering of international professionals working in the field of brain injury (traumatic and acquired, including stroke).

IBIA is pleased to partner with Acquired Brain Injury Ireland to hold the 14th World Congress on Brain Injury March 3-6, 2021, in the wonderful city of Dublin.

WHO ATTENDS THE WORLD CONGRESS?

Delegates to the World Congress on Brain Injury are comprised of rehabilitation physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, psychologists, basic/translational scientists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, nurses, case managers, advocates and all other professionals involved in the research or treatment of brain injury and/or stroke.

OUTSTANDING SCIENCE AND EDUCATION

As the seminal event in brain injury, the Congress features an outstanding faculty of internationally recognized speakers delivering platform lectures, panels and workshops. State of the art research is presented dealing with every aspect of brain injury from coma to community. The Congress provides didactic opportunities for researchers and clinicians interested in advancing their knowledge in brain injury science, medicine and care.

In addition to the invited lectures and panels, IBIA welcomes the submission of papers for consideration as oral or poster presentations.  Abstracts will be reviewed by the International Planning Committee and papers accepted for presentation will be published in a supplemental issue of IBIA’s official journal, Brain Injury.

UNPARALLELED NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

The World Congress on Brain Injury provides a unique opportunity for establishing collegial relationships with other international professionals focused on the care of persons with brain injury and/or the science of brain injury research.

The Congress provides an unparalleled platform to share scientific results, explore new treatment paradigms, develop new friendships and form new collaborations.

CONGRESS LOCATION

The Congress will be superbly located at the Convention Centre Dublin in the heart of the vibrant capital city of Dublin.  Dublin has a rich cultural heritage that begs to be explored. All year round, the city is alive with music, art and theatre of all kinds and, of course, art galleries and museums abound. Dublin consists of wonderful culture and its history is complemented by an impressive range of restaurants, cafés and shops.
