ESC Vienna 2015
Retrospects to the
24. ESC in Vienna, Austria 2015
On behalf of the European Stroke Conference (ESC) it is my pleasure to invite you all to the XXIV European Stroke Conference in Vienna 2015 – back to Austria, where the conference first met at the turn of the century in 2000. We invite all of you to contribute to our annual meeting and acknowledge your support through submission of proposals for teaching courses, the nurses and AHP educational programme, mini- and educational symposia, lectures as well as new topics.
We also invite you to submit abstracts for oral and poster sessions on our homepage www.eurostroke.eu starting on the 12 October 2014!. We will continue to organise e-poster sessions using terminals with a huge screen, which allow all the participants of the ESC to interact with the contributor’s poster, watch videos and search for items listed in our network.
As announced in Nice right now, we ask all of you to contribute to the programme of the 2015 ESC with your own proposals in addition to the regular CME approved comments: let us know what you preferred in particular sessions of the current programme as well as what you missed – we will include as many suggestions as possible in the programme of the forthcoming conference.
Applications to support the scientific committee individually are also welcome – please let us know your ideas, special expertise and expectations. Aspects of translational research with corresponding experimental and clinical studies are of great interest and will gain more importance in the future along with many other issues. In particular, we encourage members from all specialties related to stroke worldwide to join the ESC in Vienna 2015.
The european stroke research foundation – esrf will sponsor 20 Young Investigator Awards and the J.J. Wepfer Award to strengthen that both beginners and seniors in stroke research all contribute to our common goal, to improve and exchange our knowledge in scientific research as well as clinical management and prevention of a devastating disease.
We look forward to your contributions and by communicating your own ideas and
cordially invite you all to Vienna in spring time 2015.
