To: WCPT member organisations, regions, subgroups and networks


Registration opens for the WCPT Congress 2019

Registration is now open for WCPT Congress 2019. The deadline for the Super Early Bird rate is 31st October.


To enable as many of your members to attend as possible WCPT has:

  • introduced reduced registration fees for physical therapists from WCPT member organisations in low middle-income and lower-income countries
  • maintained registration fees for congress 2019 at the same rates as for congress 2017
  • introduced a Super Early Bird rate, recognising attendees who plan to attend whether they are presenting or not.


WCPT Congress 2019 promises to be an exciting and vibrant event and we hope to see many of you there.


Call for abstracts: deadline 6th September

The deadline for people to submit abstracts is less than eight weeks.


As the deadline approaches, please let your members know that now is the time to start preparing abstracts – presenting an abstract at a WCPT Congress offers a unique opportunity to present their research or showcase an innovative service, practice, resource or theory to the global profession.
