The conference focuses on clinical aspects of aphasia rehabilitation, which are relevant to researchers and practitioners in speech and language therapy for persons with aphasia, i.e. an acquired language and communication deficit following brain injury.

The conference has previously been held in Oslo (2006 and 2015), in Helsinki (2009), in Gothenborg (2013), and in Copenhagen (2009). In 2017, it will be hosted by the Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics.
