The Australasian Society for the Study of Brain Impairment (ASSBI) held its first annual conference in Melbourne in 1978. The early years of ASSBI owe a significant debt to the leadership of the foundation President Dr Kevin Walsh, who is fondly and rightfully acknowledged as the founding father of Australian neuropsychology. From its inception, ASSBI has provided a unique forum for multi-disciplinary research and clinical practice for Australian professionals working in brain impairment. Research presentation standards have always been high and, prior to 1999, conference proceedings were published for each meeting. In 2000 the society launched the journal Brain Impairment. Abstracts for all presentations at most of the annual meetings have since been published in Brain Impairment, as well as selected full papers. Brain Impairment represents a scientific journal of high quality. It publishes peer-reviewed empirical studies, literature reviews, commentaries, case reports and special issues devoted to particular themes. Brain Impairment covers a broad range of topics relevant to brain impairment including neurology, neuropsychology, psychiatry, clinical psychology, neuropathology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech pathology and anatomy and the full range of conditions that affect brain function (stroke, tumour, dementing illnesses, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy etc.) throughout the lifespan. Importantly ASSBI has always given young aspiring students a collegial environment to meet their peers and more experienced clinicians and researchers. Traditionally, at each conference, the Kevin Walsh encouragement award is given to the best fourth year or masters student presentation. In 1999 the Luria award was also introduced for the best PhD student presentation. There is also a Travel Award for the best abstract
