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

Join us for the 35th conference in Queenstown - 2-6 September 2017

About the conference

In 2016 it will be held from 27-31 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).
