ABPS

The Australasian Brain and Psychological Sciences Meeting will be hosted by The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, from December 13 to 16, 2021.

This is a combined meeting of the Australasian Society for Experimental Psychology (EPC), the Australasian Cognitive Neuroscience Society (ACNS) and the Australian Chapter of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM).

The joining of the meetings of these thriving societies aims to facilitate collaborations across disciplines and approaches, and to create opportunities to exchange new knowledge on sensory, cognitive and motor processes and their neural bases in both health and disease. Research on the mind and brain is now arguably the largest scientific endeavour worldwide, given this, and the region’s strength in these broad research areas, it is a considerable value-add to have these great societies meet, which have so much in common and can contribute so much together.

Location

Brisbane is Australia’s third largest city and one of its fastest growing and sits on the traditional lands of the Turrbal and Jagera peoples. It is a unique blend of a thriving inner city, urban villages, bush and parklands, exciting wining and dining districts and remarkable cultural precincts. It allows easy access to some of Australia’s best beaches and rain forests, and the unparalleled Great Barrier Reef.

Venue

The conference will take place in the heart of Brisbane City at the Pullman Hotel. Boasting Brisbane’s Largest Hotel Conference Facilities, the Pullman is only a few minutes walk from the city’s most popular attractions, outstanding dining venues and is walking distance from the Queens Street Mall shopping and entertainment district and the Southbank Parklands and Cultural Centre (home of Gallery of Modern Art, one of Australia’s major contemporary art museums).
