BAS Research Update Meeting 2021
Call for Papers


Online RUM to be held on Tuesday 15th June 2021

Please note: after noticing a clash of dates with the Nordic Aphasia Conference, we have now moved our event to avoid the date of that other fine event! Our new date for the BAS RUM will be Tuesday 15th June.

The Research Update Meeting is an ideal opportunity for clinicians and researchers to share and discuss ideas for potential research projects, as well as projects in progress or recently completed, in a supportive environment. It offers the opportunity to receive feedback on ideas and to keep up-to-date on current research activities, as ongoing CPD. The full programme will be advertised by early May 2021.

Call for project summaries
We welcome abstracts on planned, ongoing or recently completed studies related to aphasia. Each presentation will be followed by an opportunity for discussion. Please note the RUM2021 will be free to attend, but all attendees, including presenters, should be BAS members.
Please e-mail a summary of your research idea or
project to  (Gillian Capriotti)
Deadline (extended): Tuesday 13th April 2021
Summaries should be no more than 400 words. Please include the following headings: Background, Aims, Methods, Results (if applicable) and Conclusion (or future plans).
All submissions will be reviewed anonymously. Authors will be notified of the outcome of the review on Tuesday 27th April 2021.

 Please see the CALL FOR PAPERS for more information.
