IARC 2022 Call for Submissions


The International Aphasia Rehabilitation Conference (IARC) will be held June 22nd – June 24th, 2022, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This conference brings together a global community of clinicians, researchers, academicians, and students dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with aphasia and their families. International leaders in aphasia research and service delivery will be providing keynote events throughout the conference. The single-track format of IARC 2022 allows for a wide range of presentations and content, but still maintains the intimacy of a smaller scale conference event. IARC 2022 is calling for submissions on topics related to aphasia rehabilitation and we hope you will consider submitting. 

Note: Presenters do not need to be in-person; you will be asked to specify your preference of delivery format (virtual, in-person, or no preference) when submitting your proposal.

You are invited to submit abstracts for the following presentation formats: Oral Presentation (30 minutes) or Poster. These sharing formats will offer inspiration, peer learning, in-depth exploration, and networking. When you submit, you will be asked to identify your preferred presentation format, although the final decision about the accepted format will be made by the Scientific Committee.

Poster: A graphic representation of your work in poster format, presented during a dedicated poster session.
Oral Presentation: An oral presentation of 20 minutes with 10 minutes of questions and discussions with the audience.

All proposal submissions should be submitted in English and contain the following:
