British Aphasiology Society Conference 2020

Come and join us at Newcastle University for the British Aphasiology Society Biennial International Conference 2020.

Due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus, BAS and our conference organising team at Newcastle University have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone this year's BAS International Conference (originally planned for September 2020) by one year. This will now take place in September 2021, when we hope to enjoy this fantastic event in much safer and more usual circumstances. If you have submitted an abstract for the conference, the organising committee should already have been in touch about next steps, but if for some reason, you happen not to have received such an email, please contact For further updates about this event, please keep an eye on the BAS website, mailing list and Twitter announcements, or if you have any questions, please email:

We hope to welcome you to Newcastle in September 2021


The event, hosted across three days, will cover a wide range of current topics relevant to researchers and clinicians interested in aphasia and related communication disorders.

Our prestigious keynote speakers join us from across the globe, with interests reflecting the ever increasing diversity and complexity of aphasia.
