Crowne Plaza, Queenstown

We warmly welcome you to AWCBR 2023; this conference is New Zealand's premier annual Neuroscience conference attracting delegates from all over New Zealand and beyond. We would love you to join us for five days of world-class and varied Neuroscience.

The meeting will be held at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Queenstown. The conference will be held from Saturday evening until Wednesday afternoon. A finalised programme will be available following closing of Abstract submissions

Programme coming soon


Poster Session Guidelines

Please adhere to poster dimensions of A0 paper in portrait orientation. The poster boards are 1.2m wide and 2.3m high and velcro dots will be provided at the conference registration desk for you to display your poster on the board.

Please avoid landscape orientation with A0, as this will obscure your poster and encroach into adjacent poster boards.

NOTE: Please disregard any information on the University of Otago AWCBR website as this is currently being decommissioned and a new website will be created soon.
