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). The next World Congress will take place March 29 – April 1, 2017, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Over 1400 international delegates attended the World Congress when it was last held in the United States in 2014 in San Francisco.
WHO ATTENDS THE WORLD CONGRESS?
Delegates to the World Congress on Brain Injury are comprised of rehabilitation physicians, 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. The deadline for submitting an abstract is November 7, 2016.
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.
The Congress will be held in the culturally vibrant and exciting city of New Orleans. New Orleans is known for its jazz music, cultural attractions, diverse communities, and of course its world-famous Cajun cuisine. The meeting venue is right in the middle of the action, only steps away from the famous French Quarter.
The Scientific Leadership and the International Planning Committee look forward to welcoming you in New Orleans for this unique event!
Submit your original brain injury research by November 7, 2016
IBIA welcomes the submission of abstracts on pediatric and adult brain injury on the topics listed below. To facilitate the review process, five abstract categories have been developed for the 12th World Congress on Brain Injury.
Neurotrauma – basic research
Neurotrauma – case reports, case series, observational studies, treatment studies
Neurotrauma – epidemiology, health services, and outcomes research
Neurotrauma – prevention, public health, and public policy
Vascular Brain Injury – prevention, public health, and public policy
Vascular Brain Injury – epidemiology, health services, and outcomes research
Vascular Brain Injury – case reports, case series, observational studies, treatment studies
Vascular Brain Injury – basic research
Acquired Brain Injury* – basic research
Acquired Brain Injury – case reports, case series, observational studies, treatment studies
Acquired Brain Injury – epidemiology, health services, and outcomes research
Acquired Brain Injury – prevention, public health, and public policy
Neurotechnology – basic research
Neurotechnology – clinical research/applications
Neurorehabilitation – basic research
Neurorehabilitation – case reports, case series, observational studies, treatment studies
Neurorehabilitation – activities and participation (including family and caregiver considerations)
Neurorehabilitation – epidemiology, health services, and outcomes research
Neurorehabilitation – prevention, public health, and public policy
*Acquired Brain Injury: for the purposes of these submission categories, ‘acquired brain injury’ encompasses all brain injuries not better classified as traumatic or vascular
The abstract portal is now open. Deadline for abstract submissions is November 7, 2016.
Submissions must be data-driven or assessment/treatment model descriptions.
The abstract word limit is 450 words with English characters; if you use accents, umlauts, etc., the abstract will count them as additional words (please use the Special Characters keyboard).
The Scientific Planning Committee will review and determine the most appropriate presentation format (oral or poster) for each accepted abstract.
Awards will be given to top scoring posters and oral presentations.
Accepted abstracts will be published in a supplemental issue of IBIA’s official journal, Brain Injury.
We plan to cover a wide range of topics, including medical devices and digital health as well as biological and medical sciences, to promote cross fertilisation across multiple disciplines.
Neuroinflammation comprises the interaction of two formidably complex organ systems. Two considerations motivate this meeting: first that the communities of neuroscientists and immunologists urgently need to formulate and deploy a joint set of concepts to promote mechanistic progress (hence a meeting of the two), and second that neuroinflammation, broadly conceived, operates throughout life from embryogenesis through old age with consequences bearing on the most serious health concerns ranging from autism and schizophrenia to dementia. What’s needed in this field (for example) is for immunologists to acquire a working knowledge of neuroscience (e.g., electrophysiology, neurotransmitters, behavior) and for neuroscientists to become comfortable with the cells, proteins and animating concepts of contemporary immunology. The optimal venue for such exchange lies in the presentation of compelling multidisciplinary research to a joint audience in the Keystone Symposia format. As such, this meeting aims to: 1) Integrate the intrinsic “immune” elements of the CNS (microglia, complement, certain chemokines) into a broader scheme of neurodevelopment and to indicate where aberrant function of these elements might conduce to neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism; 2) Characterize the neuroinflammatory processes which typify aging and integrate this temporal dynamic into the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disease; and 3) Share model systems (particularly invertebrate) and technical innovations which can be particularly powerful for generating mechanistic insights into neuroinflammatory processes.
Scholarship Application & Discounted Abstract Deadline: February 21, 2017
Abstract Deadline: March 21, 2017

For the forthcoming conference, we will be continuing with debates as well as adhering to the format of the previous conferences which are designed to provide an in-depth progress report on new antiepileptic drugs in various stages of development, as well as to present new findings on second-generation treatments.
