International Brain Injury Association

From the Chairperson

The International Brain Injury Association is announcing that the
Seventh World Congress which was planned to take place in Jerusalem in 2007 will be moved to another venue. While IBIA and the IBIA Board of Governors sincerely regret this decision, it has been determined that moving the Congress is in the best interest of the Association, its membership and Congress attendees. IBIA would like to thank the Jerusalem organizing committee chairs Prof. Zeev Groswasser and Dr. Ofer Keren for their considerable efforts in planning the Congress. IBIA is currently in the process of evaluating alternative locations for the 2007 Congress and will announce the new meeting location in the first week of August, 2006.
