Letter From the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the International Paediatric Brain Injury Society (IPBIS) it is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the Fourth International Conference on Paediatric Acquired Brain Injury, which will be held October 6-9, 2021, in New York City.

Held for the first time in United States, this biennial event is the world’s preeminent conference on the subject of paediatric brain injury, and will bring together a focused multidisciplinary group of brain injury professionals who are committed to improving the outcome of children with traumatic and non-traumatic brain injury. The four-day program will feature world-renowned plenary speakers, platform lectures, workshops, over 100 oral presentations and 200 poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts.

Attendees will be comprised of physicians, neuropsychologists, therapists, researchers, allied health professionals, and brain injury advocates.  Of course, this list is not exhaustive, and indeed all multidisciplinary professionals involved in paediatric brain injury will benefit from this valuable opportunity to engage with professional colleagues, gain insights, and establish new collaborations.

Through the abstract submission process, the conference presents an unparalleled opportunity to share your research and effective approaches in clinical practice with this highly specialized group of professionals from around the world.  As a conference participant, you will join the decision-makers and key opinion leaders who are shaping the future of paediatric brain injury research, treatment, and rehabilitation.

We hope that you will join us at this unique event in the wonderful city of New York, as we together seek to affect positive change for the children living with brain injury around the world.

Sincerely yours,

Ronald Savage, EdD
