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

Abstract Submission Deadline: 31 March 2023

Abstracts are now invited on the following themes. They should be submitted using the online abstract submission system

Conference topics:

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

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 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.
