Dear Colleague, It is our pleasure to invite you to the 15th International Conference on Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (ISAH) taking place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on June 25-28, 2019.
This meeting, formerly known as the Vasospasm meeting, has traditionally focused on the pathogenesis and treatment of intracranial arterial narrowing after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. However, over the past two decades, scientific interest in other mechanisms underpinning brain injury in subarachnoid hemorrhage has increased, including early brain injury, microthrombosis and cortical spreading depolarization. Therefore, we have decided to expand the focus of the conference to all aspects of subarachnoid hemorrhage, ranging from basic science to aneurysm treatment, neurocritical care, rescue therapies, rehabilitation, and prevention.
We also have decided to strengthen our cooperation with existing professional societies. Therefore, the 2019 conference is being organized in strong collaboration with Jose I Suarez, Professor and Director Neuroscience Critical Care at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and President of the Neurocritical Care Society.
We would like to invite colleagues from neurosurgery, neurocritical care, interventional radiology, neurology, rehabilitation, neuroscience, and nursing to actively participate in this conference. We ask you to bring your experience to Amsterdam, share your knowledge and enlighten others attending. Be inspired by recent developments which you can implement in your practice, use to inform your research, and help us build a strong multidisciplinary scientific platform on subarachnoid hemorrhage.
We invite you to a beautiful city with a strong history. During the Dutch Golden Age (17th century), Amsterdam was one of the most influential cities in the world. Enjoy the beautiful canals, famous museums like the Vincent van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum, great restaurants, and everything else Amsterdam has to offer.
We look forward to welcoming you to Amsterdam!
Muziekgebouw, Piet Heinkade,
