CPISRA Conference Postponed


In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, CPISRA, Disability Sports Australia, the Cerebral Palsy Foundation and our conference partners at the University of Sydney have made the difficult decision to postpone the inaugural CPISRA International Conference.

The global containment of COVID-19 and the health and well-being of our communities is paramount, and this decision has had to be made due to tightening measures in Australia and internationally.

The new dates for the inaugural CPISRA International Conference are Friday 10th December 2021 to Sunday 12th December 2021, with a welcome event on Thursday 9th December. We have temporarily paused abstract submissions and early bird registrations and they will reopen in December 2020. We are thrilled that our keynote speaker, Dr Ed Hurvitz, will still join us in 2021.

This was a tough decision to make, but we understand that COVID-19 is affecting every aspect of people’s lives and creating disruptions far greater than sport and recreation. We know that the current situation makes it difficult to plan travel for later in 2020 and, as above, the health and well-being of the community must come first in such unprecedented circumstances.
