Torque the Talk

With less than 70 days to go, join the 1,000+ strong cohort for ISB2017 in Australia. Brisbane is where it’s all happening and definitively the place to be – we promise you will not be disappointed.

Brisbane is safe and a very liveable city - we know it’s a long way to come but once you are here your will experience a lightness of air, a laid back and friendly population and a-life-long experience you will carry into the future.

The ISB2017 program committee have put together a strong and diverse program with a balance of 500 oral and 450 poster presentations. We guarantee that the final program will be inspiring, innovative and have something for everyone. For the latest program updates check out the ISB2017 website.

For our many program speakers, a dedicated speaker portal has been developed to assist you in preparing for the Congress. Please visit the speaker centre.

Standard Registration Open until 7 July

If the five days of fantastic scientific programming, the Welcome Function, the Congress Banquet and daily catering across the duration of the ISB2017 Congress doesn’t inspire you to register, or the opportunity to network with over a 1,000 likeminded people – then a visit to Australia should! There is no place like Australia and no programme like ISB2017.

We’re only a meal, a movie and a short sleep from anywhere in the world.

For our national delegates who are yet to register – what are you waiting for! Queensland doesn’t have a winter – it’s really the best time of the seasons to visit with no humidity, warm days and cool nights. And it won’t be back to our shores for some time to come...

All prices are quoted in Australian dollars, so take advantage of the favourable exchange rates by checking the currency converter.

Registration can be submitted by completing the online form here.

Palms forward, feet shoulder width apart, standing, feet directed forward, head parallel to floor – now register.
