WSO is proud to organize the World Stroke Conference (WSC) annually as the leading global stroke meeting scheduled around the World Stroke Day. This year, the WSC will liaison with the International Symposium on Thrombolysis, Thrombectomy and Acute Stroke Therapy (TTST) and RAISE, an academic-industry roundtable stroke prevention meeting in the US. In responsibility to our delegates and their families, the WSC 2021 will go virtual but will also have strong live components and make use of the newest virtual formats to make it an unforgettable experience.
The Abstract submission site is open now! The WSC is a platform for the most influential research and most recent clinical trials. It is the prime forum for stroke research from all over the world and welcomes contributions from stroke support organisations and all members of multidisciplinary stroke teams. There are special discount rates for low and middle-income countries, allied healthcare professions and doctors in their early career as well as students. We offer high-quality educational symposia and teaching courses for stroke physicians and non-stroke specialists. On top of standard issues in stroke care, a special focus will be on pre-hospital care, artificial intelligence, telehealth, and stroke care in low and middle income countries.
WSC 2021 will be one of the most rewarding stroke conferences this year. We cordially invite you to join us from the comfort of your home. Visit the conference homepage at https://worldstrokecongress.org/.
Take care and stay healthy, fit, and creative.
See you soon!

Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
