On 5 July 2018 a first conference, will be organised in Leiden. The Netherlands, celebrating the launch of PAIR. 

First conference announcement

The first conference of ENPAIR will take place at Leiden University, the Netherlands.

Our lovely conference venue (the Hortus Botanicus) is situated in the middle of the old centre of Leiden.

The conference starts Wednesday, July 4, late afternoon with a meeting of the editorial board of PAIR, registration, and a first moment to meet each other with drinks, and of course network opportunities. The conference day then starts Thursday, July 5, 9.00 AM (registration 8.30-9.00 AM), and (formally) ends at 5.30 PM.

We will have 4 exquisite invited speakers:

We have planned a number of short, individual presentations, and a larger number of interactive poster presentations. For submission, see Conference Participation.

Presentations will have to address one or more of the themes of ENPAIR, such as (dynamic) assessment or testing, training and intervention, rehabilitation, in educational and clinical settings, in children, adolescents and adults.
