About the World Congress on Brain Injury

The 14th World Congress on Brain Injury will be held March 29-April 1, 2023, at the Convention Centre Dublin, in Dublin, Ireland. Organized by the International Brain Injury Association (IBIA), the World Congress on Brain Injury is the largest gathering of international professionals working in the field of brain injury. The World Congress is being held in partnership with ABI Ireland.

Over 100 internationally recognized invited speakers will present the latest findings on the assessment, treatment, and future priorities in the field of brain injury research and rehabilitation. In addition, multidisciplinary brain injury professionals have the opportunity to have their research considered for presentation through the peer-reviewed abstract process.

In mid May 2022, the abstract portal will be open. Once the portal is open, IBIA recommends that you submit research being done at your organization to the planning committee for consideration as either an oral presentation or poster display.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted abstracts will be presented oral presentations or posters. All accepted abstracts will be published in a special edition of IBIA’s official journal, Brain Injury.

The abstract submission site is now closed. Deadline was 30 September, 2022.
