The 2023 CPISRA Conference will take place at the John McIntryre Conference Centre (JMCC) at the University of Edinburgh. The JMCC is located in the Pollock Estate in the vibrant Southside of Edinburgh, adjacent to Holyrood Park and within walking distance of the Royal Mile. The University of Edinburgh is one of the world’s top universities and the Moray House School of Education and Sport has been involved with CPISRA for many years, including for the Frame Running Classification research.


The 2023 CPISRA Conference will be a hybrid event so delegates can choose to attend in person or online. Registrations will open in early 2023.

Abstract Submission

The focus of the 2023 CPISRA Conference is “Physical activity for health of people with cerebral palsy and related neurological conditions”. Submissions will be sought for presentations and posters on themes within this focus. As well as submissions of research-based papers and posters, we also invite sports and health practitioners to submit abstracts on aspects relating to real-world considerations of physical activity, exercise and sport for people with CP and related neurological conditions.


There are two hotels located on the Pollock Estate which will be available to book for delegates of the CPISRA Conference. There are also many other hotels within close proximity to the John McIntyre Conference Centre to suit all budgets.
