Official ESO-WSO communication: The ESO-WSO Conference has been postponed to 7-9 November 2020
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Due to the latest developments regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, and in an effort to prevent spreading the virus and for the sake of event participants, the European Stroke Organisation together with the World Stroke Organization, have decided to postpone the ESO-WSO 2020 Conference, scheduled to take place in Vienna from 12-15 May 2020.
The new dates for ESO-WSO 2020 are 7-9 November.
The conference will take place at the same venue, Austria Center Vienna and current registrations will be transferred to the new Conference dates.
In the coming weeks we will be updating the website with new registration deadlines, new programme scheduling and additional information.
ESO-WSO 2020 is your meeting. The community depends on your active participation in sharing your research, your insights and your expertise. This highly anticipated Conference will be worth the wait!
In the meantime, we kindly ask for your patience and support, and wish you, your colleagues and families good health and resilience.
