AAPB's 52nd Annual Scientific Meeting

A unique in-person/virtual hybrid learning experience...


Reconnection is imminent! As the veil lifts on these extraordinary times, it is time to look forward. All signs point to the re-emergence of some return to normalcy this fall. AAPB invites you to "thrive together" at the 52nd Annual Scientific Meeting on October 20-23, 2021 at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, Florida - with virtual considerations for presenters and attendees who may not be ready to travel.

We intend to offer the live, onsite event, with all CDC guidelines in place. Even though we will be clad in masks with distancing protocols in place - we will still be able to share space and time together. The safety and comfort of our presenters, exhibitors, attendees, hotel and travel personnel remains our highest priority. Should the pandemic risk heighten or the authoritative guidance change, we will make the final decision to "go live" no later than July 2021.

We encourage you to make plans early to attend both the 2021 and 2022 Annual Scientific Meetings. We all have a lot of catching up to do!

  • Content should maintain, develop and increase conceptual and applied competencies that are relevant to biofeedback/neurofeedback practice, education, and science.
  • Content should be based on current theory, method or practice and may provide information related to ethical, legal, statutory or regulatory policies, guidelines, and standards that impact biofeedback.
  • Presentations should emphasize takeaways that attendees can use in their practice.
  • For presentations discussing empirical research, presenters should report clear and appropriate statistical analyses and valid conclusions.
Abstract reviewers will be ensuring all submissions comply with APA guidelines related to learning objectives and commercial bias.


Submit your POSTER for presentation consideration at AAPB's 2021 and 2022 Annual Meetings

The informal interactive process between a poster author and a interested, knowledgeable audience is probably the most beneficial aspect of scientific conferences. Authors can give and receive so much diverse information about their work in a short period of time.

AAPB-accepted 2020 posters are displayed year round in our virtual poster hall. We would like to add more! Poster presenters will be given the option to present on location or virtually. Please follow this link to complete your poster submission. The submission deadline for poster abstracts is MONDAY, JUNE 14, 2021 at 11:59 PM ET. You will be notified of acceptance in July 2021.
