This unique and exciting conference will take place at the University of Sydney from the 4th to the 6th December 2020.

Combining expert talks with practical workshops, academics, healthcare professionals, sport experts and families and individuals will come together to share and exchange knowledge and understanding in this growing and ever-changing field.

CPISRA President Peter Drysdale said: “CPISRA is delighted that our new inter-disciplinary research conference will be launched in Australia and hosted by Disability Sport Australia and University of Sydney.
