Registration and Abstract Submissions
The Australasian Brain Stimulation Society is proud to invite you to ABSS2021. We regrettably had to postpone ABSS2020 that was planned to take place in Brisbane, July 2020. Given the continuing uncertainty regarding state borders and quarantine requirements, we have decided to hold ABSS2021 online from the 12-15 July 2021, to provide a conference environment that will be accessible for all registrants.
We are working on a virtual platform that will enable you to watch keynote from internationally renowned scientists and clinicians, take part in live Q&A sessions and panel discussions, watch videos from our sponsors, and network with other attendees.
The event will be held over four half days, with two am sessions and two pm sessions. It will feature international and national keynote speakers, symposia and talks by brain stimulation researchers and clinicians, and most importantly, the opportunity to develop and extend collaborative links. There will also be awards provided to the best presentations, and a student and early career researcher networking event.
While we are disappointed that we cannot hold the conference in-person in 2021, we are very much looking forward to welcoming you virtually to ABSS2021 in July.
Event Code of Conduct
ABSS is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable event experience for all participants, and a welcoming environment for free discussion of ideas. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any related concerns, please immediately contact anyone on the ABSS Committee
Conference program will be available here to download once finalised.
