Australasian Winter Conference on Brain Research is New Zealand's premier neuroscience gathering

2018 dates

25-29 August 2018

About the conference

In 2018 it will be held from 25-29 August at the Crowne Plaza, Queenstown, New Zealand. AWCBR encourages a multidisciplinary approach to neuroscience and is structured around early morning, late afternoon and evening sessions. This leaves your day free for interaction with other participants while enjoying the pleasures of New Zealand's most popular winter resort (skiing, jet-boating, bungy jumping, paragliding, hiking, rafting or just relaxing).
