Come to the inaugural ICCDC to present your latest research and hear what your colleagues are doing in the management of cognitive-communication disorders after brain injury. ICCDC is a small venue where researchers and clinicians will have the opportunity to learn through peer reviewed presentations and extensive discussion.

The emphasis of this conference is on the cognitive, communication and social disorders after traumatic brain injury, including concussion, but other kinds of brain disorders with similar disorders are encouraged as well.

Sponsored by

Chapman University, CREAN College of Health and Behavioral Sciences and the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders

CEUs will be available. Reasonable registration and student rates.

Conference Agenda

Conference Chair: Mary Kennedy, PhD, CCC-SLP, markenne@chapman.edu

+ - Call for Papers - Closed

Types of papers: Researchers are invited to present original research studies on the nature and management of cognitive and communication disorders associated with traumatic brain injury, including concussion. Because the intent of the conference is to foster clinical research, priority will be given to proposals that describe studies where the data has been collected and analyzed.

  • Paper presentations will be kept to 15 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of discussion.

Program Committee: The program committee will evaluate each submission and decide on its acceptability. This peer- reviewed process ensures that a high quality standard will be adhered to. The program committee members are:

Registration:

  • Authors whose papers have been accepted are expected to register and attend the conference. Registration will also be open to researchers and clinicians who are not presenting papers, after we know how many authors will be attending. We anticipate that the total attendance will be about 125.
