20 March 2019 – 23 March 2019

The Lowry, Salford

Following the success of the joint TIPS/ISPO UK conference in Glasgow in 2016, ISPO UK MS will once again combine its Annual Scientific Meeting for 2019 with the Trent International Prosthetic Symposium for a joint event at the spectacular Lowry, Salford Quays, Manchester from 20-23 March 2019 inclusive.

And in line with our mission to increase opportunities for partnering and collaboration with organisations at both national and international levels, we are pleased to welcome BACPAR (British Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Amputee Rehabilitation) as a third partner for this prestigious event.

TIPS/ISPO/BACPAR2019 will run for four consecutive days (Wednesday 20 March - Saturday 23 March). Organising committees from each of the three parties will collaborate to bring together a first-class programme of events which is sure to attract a wide audience of both national and international delegates.

The conference programme will comprise a series of keynote and guest lectures, free paper presentations, poster exhibition and workshops. And as is customary at ISPO meetings, a commercial exhibition will run in tandem with the meeting offering delegates an opportunity to see the latest innovations in rehabilitation engineering and assistive technologies. Combined with a lively social programme, sponsored by our exhibitors, TIPS/ISPO/BACPAR2019 promises to be a truly inspirational event for all professionals involved in rehabilitation medicine, research, practice, prosthetics, orthotics, engineering, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, neuroscience, assistive devices and technologies.

For some attending TIPS/ISPO/BACPAR2019 all sessions will be of interest and we would actively encourage you to participate in as much of the programme as you can. Others, however, may have a stronger interest in specific aspects of the conference offerings. To this end we're making every effort to accommodate opportunities for attendance and participation with a variety of registration options as well as discounts for early birds and ISPO/BACPAR members. We've also teamed up with Salford Conferencing who have a wealth of local experience and will manage delegate registration and accommodation on our behalf.

The TIPS2019 organising committee has developed a dedicated website offering information including Keynote Speakers, Key Themes, Call for Abstracts; Abstract Submission as well as Local Information including travel and accommodation. More information will follow shortly on sessions specifically relating to the 2019 ISPO UK Annual Scientific Meeting and BACPAR National Study Day.
