13th Oxford Dysfluency Conference: POSTPONED

It is with great regret that we are announcing the postponement of the 13th Oxford Dysfluency Conference 2023. 

Unfortunately, our venue, St Catherine’s College Oxford, has been suddenly closed due to the discovery of RAAC (Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) in both the lecture theatres and residential accommodation.  In recent weeks a school ceiling collapsed and consequently all educational institutions in the UK are being checked for RAAC and, if found, they are closed with immediate effect. 

Together with the College, we have made enquiries for an alternative venue but, at this late stage, it has been impossible to find a space that has capacity to meet our requirements for meeting rooms, catering, and accommodation.

 The whole team are deeply disappointed that we are unable to bring this conference to you at this time.  However, we are exploring options for new dates so please keep the conference website bookmarked and look out for further announcements.

The Oxford Dysfluency Conference, under the theme ‘Back to the Future’, is to be held in-person at St Catherine’s College Oxford from 19-22 September, 2023. The conference has a reputation as one of the leading international scientific conferences in the field of dysfluency.

We are excited to be getting back together in person. To meet with colleagues old and new, build on what has gone before, and bring new energy and ideas to our research and clinical practice. The future is now, come and join us! 

The conference brings together researchers and clinicians, providing a showcase and forum for discussion and collegial debate about the most current and innovative research and clinical practices. Throughout the history of the Oxford Dysfluency Conference, the primary aim has been to bridge the gap between research and clinical practice.  The conference seeks to promote research that informs management, with interventions that are supported by sound theory and which inform future research.

Conference topics:

  • Conceptualizing stuttering
  • Genetics and Neurophysiology
  • More than speech
  • Cluttering and acquired stuttering
  • Advancing clinical practice through research
