WELCOME LETTER

On behalf of the World Stroke Organization and the Canadian Stroke Consortium, we extend our warmest welcome to the 11th World Stroke Congress (WSC) in Montreal, Canada October 17-20, 2018. This major Congress will be returning to North America for the first time in more than 12 years.

Montreal is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city which was founded in the 17th century and is pleased to welcome visitors in English and French. The Congress will be held in an elegant modern Congress center next door to the charming cobblestone streets of Old Montreal. The region is full of opportunities to explore, walk, shop and dine in some of the finest restaurants in North America. Given the location and the amenities, it is unsurprising that Montreal hosts the most international conventions of any city in the Americas.

Canada has well-developed stroke care systems and has contributed to significant advances in stroke care through efforts in developing guidelines, clinical and health systems research. These efforts are ongoing and increasingly important in the face of an aging population and increased health care demands in Canada and around the world. 

The Congress will provide a state of the art experience for stroke professionals, researchers and policy makers. We have designed an unparalleled educational and scientific program covering epidemiology, prevention, acute care and stroke recovery. As a unique feature we plan on having the majority of posters as brief presentations to ensure the greatest uptake of your work.

Please join us in Montreal at the 11th World Stroke Congress to meet colleagues and friends, to learn and share experience and enjoy Canadian hospitality. We look forward to seeing you in Montreal.

Warm regards,

Werner Hacke, WSO President and Congress Co-President
Mike Sharma, Congress Co-President
