We are in the process of recreating the program in its entirety. All those presenters accepted for the 2020 program, REMAIN ACCEPTED for our new dates.  Additionally, we will open the call for 2021 presenters as well.  If you are no longer available to present during November 2020 – we are happy to move your presentation to AAPB’s 52nd Annual Meeting (April 8-11, Orlando, FL).
You may register or re-register for the meeting at any time – we are actively working to revise the schedule and website to reflect the new dates.  The schedule will be very similar to what is currently posted.

Dear AAPB members, attendees and friends,
In light of the current world public health crisis resulting from COVID-19 and guidance of all official national, state and local government health agencies, it is not possible to go forward with the 51st AAPB Annual Scientific Meeting, as planned (La Jolla, CA - April 1-4, 2020).
The conference is rescheduled to November 3-6, 2020 to keep our members safe. Your registration fee will be applied to this rescheduled date. Should you be unable to attend the rescheduled meeting, we will refund your registration fee.
We ask for your patience as we accomplish next steps in the next two weeks.  We will continue to update you as logistics fall into place:
  • Revised Online Registration: New early registration deadlines, as well as an option to cancel current registration online
  • Program Replication: Working with the presenters to reschedule the Program in entirety, as originally planned
  • Communications: Much more information
  • TRAVEL: Cancel or reschedule your flight. The airlines are now in position to refund, transfer and provide vouchers.  If your refund is rejected, contact  info@aapb.org for support.
  • HOTEL RESERVATIONS: The Hyatt has been a wonderful partner through this situation. You will have the option to move your reservation to our new dates or cancel fully. Anyone who needs to cancel or change your housing reservation should contact the hotel directly with their confirmation number at 858-552-1234.  If they run into any issues feel free to contact Linda Arcangeli-Story, AAPB Meetings Director, at larcangeli@kellencompany.com and she can assist in your cancellation.
  • MEETING REGISTRATION: If you have already requested a refund, it will take several weeks to process. 
You will have the option to re-register. Additional information will be provided on how to request the refund in the next week.
  • CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS: If you are concerned about certification and licensure reporting deadlines, we encourage you to reach out to those bodies and request an extension.  Be sure to copy us at info@aapb.org - so that we can provide support of registration.  So far, most regulatory bodies are making these preparations and will likely be communicating directly with you soon.
AAPB remains open for business, as all staff has remote capabilities. We will be increasing the number of webinars during this time to support social distancing, offering APA CE credits and CME credits. More to come.
To ease the strain and give you something to do, we will have a book sale! More details soon. The Compassion Book, by Dr. Inna Khazan and Dr. Donald Moss, will soon be available and we will offer discount pricing on our latest text, Physiological Recording Technology and Applications in Biofeedback and Neurofeedback, an essential resource.
You all have an important role to play. Anxiety is high in the public sentiment. Understandably so. AAPB Board member/Conference chair, Dr. Inna Khazan, has some EXCELLENT GUIDANCE to help us all address the impact of the coronavirus: 5 Steps to Living with Uncertainty During Coronavirus.  We encourage you to share widely.
We don’t want our positive connections to lead to infections for any one. Now we are talking “Positive Connections” and national elections. Vote early!

Thank you for your continued patience as we all navigate this unprecedented and complex situation. It is the AAPB board's decision to act in an abundance of caution and protection of our most valuable resource, our members. We are concerned for everyone’s health amidst this international crisis. We hope you will continue to stand beside us as we navigate these difficult times. Stay safe and well. See you in November. 


The 51st AAPB Annual Conference will be held November 3-6, 2020 in La Jolla, CA. The theme resonates around the idea of connectedness: Positive Connections.

The goal of this conference is to bring clinicians, physicians, researchers and professionals involved with biofeedback and applied psychophysiology together to exchange information, ideas, scientific data and to share experiences. Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately "feed back" information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions and behavior — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument. Hot topics in biofeedback (eNcompass) HRV, Neurofeedback, Optimal Performance.
