We are a society run by and for the benefit of members. Therefore, to attend any of our events you must become a member.

We run three types of events.

In Autumn we run a Scientific Conference or Therapy Symposium. These alternate bi-annually, where the Therapy Symposium is targeted more toward clinicians and the Conference toward academics. These are typically large events (of 120+ people) with presentations, posters, and sometimes workshops.

In Spring we run a Research Update Meeting (RUM). The RUM is a forum consisting of 20-30 people in a workshop type setting where researchers present ongoing work in aphasia (which members may attend for free). Projects can be at any stage of development or completion. The meeting is designed to be an open and friendly environment, with an audience of clinicians, students, researchers and clinical-academics. It offers the opportunity to receive feedback on ideas and to keep up-to-date on current research activities. The full programme will be advertised in April.

Our events are hosted all over the UK. If you’d like to host a Conference, Symposium or Update Meeting, please get in touch here:

RUM events are free of charge to attend, but all attendees have to be BAS members (including presenters). To join, please visit: Registration is not yet open. Please keep an eye out for updates from BAS.

The next RUM will be held at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow on Friday 5th June 2020. Please look out for the first call for papers, which will be sent out shortly.
