November 2016

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We look forward to seeing you all in Prague next May for ESOC 2017.  Preparations have been made for what will be an exciting conference in a marvelous European city.  We would like to share an advanced version of the programme for ESOC 2017 so you can see what to expect. You will discover that the time dedicated to oral communications has been expanded to provide an even larger platform for scientific exchange including for early career researchers.  We will further offer more room to allied healthcare professionals our partners in stroke care and research.

Abstracts can be submitted until January 12, 2017 on the ESOC website. Work submitted for ESOC 2016 ended up being published in top biomedical and subjects-specific journals including the New England Journal of Medicine, Lancet Neurology, Annals of Neurology, Stroke, European Stroke Journal, and International Journal of Stroke. This is only one of the many reasons to attend the ESO conference in 2017. 
We expect abstract submission from all continents. Authors working and living in low-income and lower-middle-income  countries,  as  defined by the WHO, will find information on ESOC 2017 travel grants.

Presenting authors / physicians, aged 35 years or under at the opening date of the conference, 16 May 2017​​, are  eligible  for the prestigious  ESO Young Investigators Awards

We  very much look  forward  to seeing you  in Prague for  ESOC 2017!


Best Wishes,
Valeria Caso, ESO President

According to the ESO-EAST Stroke Unit Nurse Education Project (SUNEP) plan, in Autumn 2016 the final part of the project, an on-site training on a certified Stroke Unit, took place. Over the period from October 3rd through November 9th seven small groups of the ESO-EAST SUNEP participants arrived at Johannes Wesling Klinikum Minden, Germany, to stay for 2.5 days and learn from experienced German colleagues. The ESO-EAST SUNEP - pilot phase, including the on-site training, was arranged by the ESO in collaboration the Ukrainian Anti-Stroke Association and supported by an unrestricted grant courtesy of Boehringer Ingelheim. The on-site training was organized and led by Dr. Joerg Glahn, Senior Physician, University Clinic for Neurology and Neurogeriatrics, Johannes Wesling Klinikum Minden.

As part of the European Brain Council`s (EBC)  goals to disseminate information about brain research and brain diseases in Europe, EBC has been part of planning of a series of policy workshops held over the last few years across Europe with a focus on Atrial Fibrillation-related Stroke.
The final workshop will be a half day event in Brussels at the European Parliament on 25 January 2017, hosted by MEP Aldo Patriciello.
