48th Annual Scientific Meeting
March 15-18, 2017

SESSION CANCELLED: WS10 - Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The Association for Applied Psychophysiology & Biofeedback (AAPB), the pioneering professional society devoted to education and research in this field, will be hosting their 48th Annual Scientific Meeting in Chicago, Illinois on March 15-18, 2017 at the Loews Chicago O'Hare Hotel.

The goal of this conference is to bring clinicians, physicians, researchers and professionals involved with Biofeedback, Applied Psychophysiology, Neurofeedback, Bio and Neurotechnologies together to exchange information, ideas, scientific data and to share experiences. You won't want to miss the opportunity to attend practical workshops, hear from leading clinicians and researchers and check out the latest equipment. 


Why choose between downtown energy and the convenience of being five minutes from the airport? At the Lowes Chicago O'Hare Hotel, AAPB conference attendees can have the best of both worlds! Across the street from Catherine Chevalier Woods, this luxury airport hotel is 2.7 miles from O'Hare Airport, and a mile from the intersection of Interstates 90, 190 and 294.  Amenities include 3 restaurants, a cocktail bar and a live music venue, as well as a gym. There's also a complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle.


Make your reservations early! AAPB has secured a $149 room rate - so be sure to make your reservation before February 17, 2017 to receive the special rate. For individual reservations, call 1-877-868-9134, and reference "AAPB317." Click here to make your reservations online.

We appreciate your time and consideration in contributing your research, time and talent to the 2017 meeting. 

Hope to see you in Chicago next March!
