British Aphasiology Society International Conference

From: Wed 13 Sep 2023

To: Fri 15 Sep 2023


The British Aphasiology Society (BAS) is pleased to announce that the International Conference 2023 will be hosted at the National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery, London.

The conference will be run as a hybrid event, with both in-person and online attendance available. The theme of our conference will be ‘Living well with aphasia’.

The conference will be held on 13th, 14th, and 15th September. The first day will be dedicated to Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) and the latter two days will be dedicated to Aphasia. This is first time that PPA will be allocated an entire day on the conference programme.

The conference will offer the opportunity to learn about clinically relevant research and contemporary clinical practice in a variety of formats. This will include posters, lightning talks and presentations from clinicians, researchers, tertiary organisations, and, most importantly, people with lived experience.

Call for abstracts:

The call for abstract is open. We invite you to submit an abstract for a 15-minute oral presentation, a 5-minute lightning talk, a poster presentation (for clinician, academics, and tertiary organisations) or a 15-minute service user platform (for people with aphasia, family, carers, or aphasia groups). The submission deadline is the 30th April 2023.
