AAPB's 51st Annual Scientific Meeting


51st Annual Scientific Meeting
A Unique Virtual Experience
RESCHEDULED: November 4-6, 2020


SAVE THE DATES! September 13-18, 2021: AAPB 52nd Annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando, Florida


Dear AAPB Members and Stakeholders,

Thank you for your continued patience as AAPB modified our programming in response to the global pandemic of 2020.  Your calmness in the storm has been appreciated.

As many of you are aware – it is not safe to gather the AAPB community in La Jolla for AAPB’s 51st Annual Meeting. In evaluating the “current state” of affairs across the globe, the AAPB Board of Directors has officially made the difficult determination to cancel the live event, scheduled for November 3-6.

While we may not be able to gather in person this year, we still plan to make positive connections, as intended. So hold the dates!


What to expect

The AAPB Annual Meeting Planning Committee will deliver an abbreviated schedule of courses, to be offered virtually on November 4-6, 2020, developed to help you meet certification and licensure requirements, mitigate Zoom fatigue with small doses of meaningful content and allow you to connect LIVE with mentors and peers for that interactive, face-to-face feel.

The goal of this conference remains the same:  to bring clinicians, physicians, researchers and professionals involved with biofeedback and applied psychophysiology together to exchange information, ideas, scientific data and to share experiences.

The AAPB 2020 VIRTUAL schedule of events IS NOT YET available.  Once unveiled, currently registered 2020 attendees may apply their registration fees to the virtual event or receive a refund. All access passes and a la carte options will be available for the virtual meeting, to fit all budgets and time constraints.  We expect to open registration in mid-October.

Need CE credits? Plan to attend the live group internet-based delivery of sessions that will occur November 4-6, 2020From the basic science and the latest research to clinical interventions and hot topics, we will have you covered.  If you join us for the “All Access” pass – you will gain admission to all sessions, including live discussion forums, keynote presentations and more.

We will offer group mediation daily and some virtual networking; various opportunities are in the works including special coaching sessions on various biofeedback equipment and instrumentation as well as an interactive “Positive Connections” reception so we can share what we have learned this year, together.

Not available to join AAPB on November 4-6, 2020?  Not to worry! All educational content will be recorded for later viewing, on your own time, for purchase on the AAPB website.  While recorded content is not valid for CE credit, it remains a valuable investment for your career.

We are going to ensure you have access to as much of the original 2020 educational program as possible. From December 2020 to August 2021, AAPB will ramp up the number of virtual webinars per month by offering the full-day and half-day “preconference” workshops as multi-day opportunities – to keep the breadth of the essential learning scheduled, realistically, to fit a variety of schedules and help give you the most optimistic chance of meeting your educational, personal, certification and licensure requirements along the way.


When can AAPB meet in person again?

AAPB’s has rescheduled its 2021Annual Meeting, at the Royal Caribe in Orlando, Florida, from April to September 13 – 18, 2021. We are confident that conditions will improve in a year’s time.  Likely with masks and streaming options - for presenters and attendees, but in person too.

Please visit here for more information about the decision and registration update.

I am looking forward to making Positive Connections with you all in 2020 and beyond.
