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

2019 dates

31 August to 4 September 2019

About the conference

In 2019 it will be held from 31 August to 4 September 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).
