2021 In-Person Conference

The International Paediatric Brain Injury Society (IPBIS) has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone the Fourth International Conference on Paediatric Acquired Brain Injury originally scheduled for October 6-9, 2021 in New York City. Plans are underway to reschedule the in-person conference in New York in 2022. More details on the New York conference and information on additional IPBIS in-person events will be posted on this website as they become available.

Outstanding Education

The 2021 Virtual World Congress on Brain Injury will include focused sessions on the development of innovative treatments, rehabilitation programs, support mechanisms and ways to improve the lives and potential of young people affected by brain injury. The educational program will be inclusive of all issues relating to paediatric brain injury, both traumatic (e.g., external physical force injuries, penetrating injuries) and atraumatic (e.g., infectious diseases, tumors, stroke, neurotoxic poisonings).

Gender Balance

IPBIS strives to achieve gender balance in all aspects of its programming, and to promote well-being in children and young people with ABI and their families. IPBIS endeavors to achieve this balance through equal female and male representation on the organizing committees and as session chairs as well as through invitations to high-quality speakers of both sexes in line with the gender balance in our research community.
